Cooking for the big trip.
28 February 2010 | Florida
We're four months away from our summer trip, ever optimistic that we'll have good weather and our trip will happen, I have started to prepare some of the food for the 'Voyage' huh!
We live out of a pretty small cooler onboard JD, refreshing it ith ice when chances arise. Normally that's at least every other day.
I have become quite adept at preparing 'Freeze A Meals' and it saves a bundle on commercial frozen food packs.
So today I'm cooking Curry Chicken with Mango and Red Pepper, the smell is pretty darned good! 5lbs of B&S Chicken Breasts, Red Peppers, Green Onions, Curry Powder, Cloves, Garlic, Cilantro, Chicken Broth, Mangos, Rasins, Ginger, Apple cider vinegar, and seasoning. In the Crock pot for 4 hours. Recipe courtesy of Crock Pot The original Slow Cooker. PilCookBooks.com (I'm not related to them in anyway)
When it's cooked, I'll put some into Freeze A Meal bags and Vacuum pack them. Then into the freezer till we are ready to leave on our trip.
The plan is to create eight Freeze A Meals, for our twelve day journey from Biscayne Bay down to the keys as far as we get in 5 days, which could be around Pine Key.
