Below is the list of ingredients you'll need for March 3rd's Freezer Cooking Class and live chat. I recommend buying the ingredients no more than 2 days before. If you want, you can buy all the ingredients except the raw meat now, and pick up the meat a few days before. Letting raw meat sit in the fridge for more than two days is a no-no. I'd hate for anyone to get sick!
This is how it will work. Around 11am (Central Time) on March 3rd, I'll begin the class on my Facebook page with a status update. Everyone who is participating in the cooking will "like" the status. Once I get a general idea of how many people are following along, I'll start posting each step in a comment. Once you have completed the step, you'll "like" the comment. Once it looks like everyone is ready for the next step, I'll post it, and so on. Each meal will be a separate status update with steps in the comments. Any questions you have can be asked under that meals status and I'll answer them as we go. For those who can't participate live with us, I'll take the questions from the live chat and turn the class into a detailed blog post.
If you have any questions about this list, please message me on my FB page or email me. This will be my first class so I may need help in making sure everything is clear and concise.
Besides the actual ingredients, you will need gallon-sized Ziploc FREEZER bags, Saran Wrap, and a cookie sheet or baking pan to freeze on.
