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:
- Black Bean Burger's
- Bean Burrito's
- Florentine Mac & Cheese
- Hanky Panky's
- 1 lb Red & White's Mild Country Sausage
- 1 lb Red & White's Hot Country Sausage
- 1 lb Red & White's Seasoned Burger Patties
- 1 1/2 lbs Byrd's Shredded BBQ
- Trader Joe's Whole Wheat Pizza Dough Balls
- Store Bought Hummus
- Hall's on the River (Kentucky) Beer Cheese
- Spicy Marinara Sauce
- Zucchini Chocolate Chip Cookies
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.
The top layer - before the beach items were loaded.
Freezer after the cooler's loaded.
Finally the loaded cooler; and we're heading out!
