It's a never ending struggle for me! After trying many different things, most mentioned already, I settled on creating a spreadsheet. I update after trips to store. I periodically update as I use things up. I should be more frequent on my updates but overall it's worked pretty well. Definitely soggy - they release a LOT of water as they thaw. I drain then pat dry with paper towels if I need to avoid extra moisture in recipe I need them for. But crisp? Unfortunately no WOW!!!! Those. Look. Amazing!!!!! Treasure in your freezer!!! I made Butterhorn Rolls for our dinner yesterday and am flash freezing a whole tray of them. Made a 3 lb London Broil in crockpot and have that in freezer now. Also filled two small ziplocks FULL with leftover PW Mashed Potatoes for the freezer as well. Earlier this weekend I made up a batch of Oven Chicken Fajita marinade and put some sliced chicken in there before freezing.
