Freezer Cooking - October

My freezer cooking extravaganza is going to take place next Thursday or Friday. I have a couple days off around Shelby's birthday. The princess is turning two, and we're making progress with getting her to eat what we're eating. The girl loves meat (red meat, chicken, ribs, doesn't matter). So, this month will have a larger focus on "hiding" veggies in yummy foods that will be acceptable to our expressive toddler.

I have been bookmarking recipes that I'm excited to try! It's an ambitious plan, but boy does it help having dinner just a quick thaw away!

Here's my plan!
- Wheat Pizza Dough x3 (from Smitten Kitchen)
- Hamburger Buns x2
- Stuffed Shells (from This Week for Dinner)
- Minestrone Soup (from Pioneer Woman)
- Green Meatballs
- Chicken Pot Pie (since it's getting to be decent weather again!)
- Sweet Potato Gnocchi (from Three many Cooks)

I will definately be working the stuffed shells into the rotation. Do you freeze them sauce and all and then just bake as directed once they thaw?

Truth be told: I haven't "made-and-froze" this one before. I think I'm going to freeze them before adding the sauce. And, I'll freeze them in smaller batches since we have a smaller family!
