8-10 medium yukon gold potatoes
1 stick butter
1/4 cup dijion mustard

Boil potatoes, drain, cool, peel, then slice.  Arrange potatoes and sausage in layers in a baking dish.  Melt butter with mustard, capers, dill, chicken broth to make a sauce. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pour sauce over potatoes/sausage.  Sprinkle with cheese.  Bake at 375 for 30 min.

Based on a recipe by Joan Archer from Shoreline Covenant Church

Freezer Kit
Bag 1 - sauce
Bag 2 - cheese
Pan - layer potatoes/sausage in foil pan, place Bag 1 & 2 on top of potatoes/sausage, cover with foil

Frozen Mamas
Thaw, pour sauce over potatoes/sausage, sprinkle with cheese, bake at 375 for 30 min

Chicken Fettuccine

2 Sticks Butter (use salted butter-I forgot, so make sure and either put salt in your sauce or salt to taste.)
1 pint half and half
5 cloves garlic
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Parmesan Cheese
Chicken pieces
Penne noodles

Melt butter add garlic, half and half and 1/2 cheese. Warm through and then add nutmeg, once nutmeg is dissolved add your chicken. Keep on low/medium don't let boil or stick to pan it will burn! I stir continuously! Boil noodles while sauce is heating, drain noodles and pour sauce over noodles put back on burner on low, mix all together and the other 1/2 of cheese and let sit for just a few minutes. It will be a little liquidy but after a few minutes it will come together! Enjoy!

From frozen state: Thaw chicken, you can thaw sauce or do from a partially frozen state(that is how I did it!) Melt all the sauce package ingredients together, stirring constantly. (Boil your noodles at the same time.) Once sauce is melted add half the cheese package, save rest for later, melt through and then add chicken. Heat till chicken is warm and sauce is warm. Once noodles are done add the two together and the other 1/2 of cheese and put back on burner on low for a few minutes as it all comes together! Enjoy!

Spaghetti Carbonara

1# bacon
3 TBSP butter
3/4 C Parmesan cheese
1 small onion, thinly sliced
2 eggs, beaten
black pepper

Cook spaghetti, and drain. While spaghetti cooks, fry bacon until desired crispness, drain on paper towels. Clean pan of all bacon drippings. Melt butter and saute onions. When the onions are still somewhat crisp, move them to one side of the pan, and add spaghetti. Move onions to the top of spaghetti. Put 1/2 the cheese on top, then drizzle the beaten eggs over all. Toss with 2 forks and continue cooking on medium low heat. The eggs and cheese mixture will coat the spaghetti. When dry, add the bacon and toss to warm. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over top, and add parsley for color and black pepper to taste.
