One of those days...
The freezer was full, naturally. Tons of chicken, all of it thawed but still very cold. I plan to cook it all today, the oven is full right now with 3 trays of bone-in, skin-on leg quarters and breasts. There is still that much and more to cook. Once it's all cooked can it be refrozen? Does it make a difference if I freeze it as is or if I use it in a recipe and then refreeze? If so, some simple recipe ideas would be most appreciated. Simple is key, I am up to my ears in this today.
I have curry pastes, coconut milk, canned tomatoes, artichokes, and beans, rices, pastas, lentils, probably most of the basic pantry things. Not much fresh stuff, though, besides onions and carrots.
I'm thinking the 5 lbs of bacon can be refrozen uncooked?
about 15 bags of frozen peas, beans and edamame. Can they just be refrozen as is?
I threw out tons of things that couldn't be salvaged but am hoping these things will be alright.
Oh yes, I also thought I could refreeze frozen pizzas without cooking them. What do you think?
Thank you very much for any help.
