Have you had the opportunity to experience just how awesome having a freezer full of ready to go dinners is? If you haven’t then you need to give it a try! Just promise me that within the next 30 days you will try it. If you are not totally sold on the idea, you can come back and let me know your true feelings. But I am confident that you will be converted to the freezer meal way of life!
Who needs them?
You do, that’s who! We all do. Maybe you have an insanely crazy busy day and dinner is just an afterthought. Or maybe you have a really relaxing day but the thought of cooking a meal is just too much work. Having some thoughtless options prepared will be a game changer for you! No more last minute trips through the drive through, saving you a lot of money and a lot of calories!
How it works.
I first tried our prepping of a bunch of freezer meals when I decided to start this blog actually. I knew I was going to be spending every extra second I had on the computer and getting dinner ready was going to be a last minute thought. Never a good thing in our house! It only took be 3 hours (one nap time) to get everything prepped and I hade 16 meals ready to go in my freezer.
All you have to do is choose which recipes you think your family would love to eat, make sure you have all of the ingredients needed to prepare the dish, then find a 3 hour slot of your day where you can devote your focus to dicing, chopping, and combing. Make sure to have plenty of foil casserole dishes and freezer safe bags on hand!
