My Freezer

OK so you might not get satisfaction from an organized freezer but I sure do. It has been on my list of things to accomplish for quite a while now and I finally got to it today. Notice the 2nd and 4th shelves and how the batch cook meals are all filed like books - I LOVE that! The bottom basket has all my berries, unfortunately we are now out of blueberries. our picking this year was not timed right. I am going to have to (gasp) buy some. We love to eat blueberries on our oatmeal. The children and I eat oatmeal almost everyday (just ask Erik) and it isn't the same with out the beloved berry.

Organizing the garage freezer inspired me to organize the inside freezer and I even threw away some breast milk that has been in there for 2 years!! Yes, I guess this is confession because that is embarrassing to me. Now all that is in there are the necessities (like ice cream that I don't want to go out to the garage to get) and the meals or frozen food that I plan on using for the week.
Which leads me to this week's menu:
Sunday: Beef Short Ribs, baked potatoes, corn and chocolate chip cookies for dessert
Monday: Spaghetti, french bread, and green beans
Tuesday: Bean Burritos, (Sean and I both have things going on so this is easy for the sitter)
Wednesday: Sweet Asian Chicken and Rice, Stir Fry Veggies
Thursday: Beef Barley Soup
Friday: My Favorite: Pork chops, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, and cooked carrots
Saturday:(Oh no, I don't know yet)
Sunday: Homemade Pizza
Monday: Boy Scout Pack Meeting- Taco Soup that we can eat when we get there with homemade corn bread muffins
Usually I know what I am having all week but I just couldn't figure it out yet. Guess I need some suggestions.

I have freezer envy. It's so beautiful! You've inspired me to tackle my own, well maybe the inside freezer.

Your menu sounds delicious. I love pork chops and stir fry. Wish my family did. :[
