A Cooler Load and Menu Plan Monday - Beach Edition

In case you haven't been reading along over the past month, I have spend the past several weekend making ahead beach meals and freezing like crazy - summer tomatoes, squash puree, and rhubarb (early summer)to name a few.

We purchased a new large cooler to load up all our beach freezer goodies, it's a Coleman 62-Quart Xtreme Wheeled Cooler.

Here's what's packed:

The top basket of the freezer: chunked rhubarb in 1 lb portions, black raspberries (from Mom), sliced okra from our summer CSA, spicy marinara sauce using tomatoes from our garden, Mom's, and the CSA.
