Nothing too fancy but we did manage to make a few things for the freezer ending with home made chocolate fudge sauce, we’ve been making this since the late 70’s it’s a recipe I got from my father-n-law that he put in a cookbook called the Bell Cook Book, my mother-n-law tweaked it & came up how to double it to make a quart, I always divide it into two pints, one for keeping & one for sharing, as it chills it thickens up, as you can see we dove into ours lol!
would you like the recipe? oh & this is also awesome as icing for a sheet cake, I’m just saying!
3 cups sugar
1/2 cup coco
1 1/2 cup milk
in a heavy sauce pan bring this to a boil & boil for one minute
1/2 stick of butter
1 teasp. van.
then there was meatballs!
I divided the beef in 1/2, took 12 & added sausage patties & fixins & make meatballs using an ice-cream scoop to get a nice size meatball, then flash froze them to prevent sticking together in a baggie
the other half of the hamburger I made into 4 large patties, flash froze them, wrapped in saran then placed in a baggie, they will be handy for burgers or hamburger steaks
1 lb. beef
1 lb. pork I just eyeball the beef & pork to about how many meatballs I want to make
1 med onion chopped I dare say I used less than 1/2 cup, go with what you like
2 cloves garlic minced I use minced in a jar about 1 tabs.
1 tabs Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup Katsup
2/3 cup crushed crackers
2 tsp. Italian seasoning
the recipe also calls for 1 1/2 tbs.garlic powder & 1 1/2 tbs.onion powder.. I didn’t use these 2 ing.
Mix beef & pork & incorporate all ingredients& shape into balls
cook in slow cooker for 6-8 hrs with spaghetti sauce of your choice
I have also baked the meatballs & they are just as good but I like the crock pot better because I can set it & forget it lol!
then there was breakfast burritos!
scramble up some eggs, grab some tortilla shells, diced ham, shredded cheese & you’ve got great breakfast burritos! I just eyeball it on a burrito, then roll um up & wrap in saran wrap then place into a baggie, I label the baggie egg-ham-cheese & into the freezer they go, Terry snagged one on the way to work before I could get them bagged up lol! they can be heated up in the oven or the microwave, we do both but I prefer the oven , they just seem softer to me that way & with just a brief effort you can unroll it & add salsa & sour cream & roll it back up yum yum!
