Food, food and more food

For more then a year now we have been planning a cooking day with our friends Sandy and Jason.  We would split the cost of groceries, split the chopping and stirring and then split the end results.  We thought we would make some pasta sauce, a stew, maybe a curry - all things that could be frozen and heated up for a quick meal after work.

Well yesterday we finally got together and did it.  Here's what we ended up with:
  • 10 hours
  • 4 people
  • $120.00
  • 9 dishes that made:
  • 32 meals &
  • 5 desserts
  • 0 injuries
  • way too many dirty dishes!

    Sandy and Jason brought over their nifty vacuum sealing system.  Hilary was a little hesitant to put liquids into bags, but it really did work!

    It was a long and tiring day, but households have lots of food in the freezer and we're all game to do it again in a few months.

    Well done! I've always wanted one of those vacuum-y things! Those all sound like hearty and delicious things to eat in the middle of cold, snowy winter!
