Hearty Green Bean Casserole

heartysmarty

What is Thanksgiving dinner without Green Bean Casserole? I use frozen green beans instead of canned and my homemade cream of chicken soup recipe for the sauce.

Raspberry Peach and Banana Smoothie

heartysmarty

Remember all those raspberries we picked in Wyoming this summer? My parents froze them and sent us home with a cooler full of them! I have three peach trees in my yard whose harvest is also in my freezer. These two fruits are making THE BEST smoothies for us this Fall. Combined with a banana for added sweetness, spinach for a punch of flavorless foliage (and Folate, vitamins K, and A among others), and unsweetened vanilla almond milk to make it smooth, and this smoothie has been crowned as my kids' current favorite. Enjoy! Raspberry, Peach and Banana Smoothie kid-approved

Freezer Pesto Sauce

heartysmarty

Every Summer I grow a huge basil plant in my garden. I love using fresh basil in sauces and salads all summer long. Around mid-October, I start watching the weather reports closely so I can time my basil harvest just right. Basil does not do well in temperatures under 40 degrees. Whenever that cool-down happens, I drop what I am doing and pull in the basil and make pesto and freeze it to use all winter long. I make these frozen poesto pucks into Pesto Chicken Pizza with it or mix it into Pasta and it tastes like I made
