Freezer Meals

We’re starting the year off with a goal to eat out less, and cook healthier. We both enjoy cooking, and try to cook at home as much as possible, but between work and night classes, it can be hard to cook dinner and prep lunches every day. I finally caved in, and started planning to make some freezer meals to start the new year and new semester off on the right foot! Equipped with a sharpie, freezer bags, and a huge cart of food, we set off on a journey to plan weeks of meals in advance. I’ll document the process in the next blog post, but wanted to share some of my favorite blogs and recipes on the topic so far:

Colombian Hotdogs

In the last few years, I’ve gained a deep love for Colombian Hotdogs. The more toppings, the better! At first, I was hesitant to just pile them on, but once I enjoyed a quail egg on my perro, there was no going back my friends.

After trying so many hotdog shops, I finally decided to try my hand at them at home. I found this site-

And I went to work!

I whipped up a pineapple sauce first.

Then I mixed up the pink sauce.

I bought quality products, including all-beef hot dogs, the fluffy potato buns, and a bag of the fried shoestring potatoes (I prefer this over crushed potato chips which is also a good option). I also  ketchup and added a thin slice of ham, and melted mozzarella cheese under the potatoes!

Garlic sauce, cilantro sauce, bacon, quail egg, and much more can be added as toppings. Have fun!
