Even with a menu plan, there are days when I still can’t think of what to fix for supper, and when the girls ask me what is for breakfast, cereal is the only answer I can give. I have read about freezer meals for years. I’ve even tried to do freezer meals by myself and with others. It’s a lot of work that is supposed to save me time in the long run. I go through phases. But it’s always worth another shot, especially with the plethora of resources out there.
My goal is not to spend an entire Saturday cooking up a storm and filling my freezer full. But instead, I hope to freeze a few breakfast items and snacks that I can pull out in a pinch, and a couple times a week, doubling a pasta dish or soup while cooking supper, so that I’ll have extras for busy days. Simple… I hope.
Here are a few of the many resources I’ve found through Pinterest & other favorite blogs (note: most of them are vegetarian):
o A Frugal Simple Life – lots of recipes! I’m excited about trying the Popeye Pie & Meatless Tamale Pie
o Once a Month Cooking – one of the most well known freezer blogs with several different options
o Good Cheap Eats – 31 days of freezer cooking & she’s also written a book, Not Your Mother’s Make-Ahead & Freeze Cookbook
o Money Saving Mom – Lunchbox freezer friendly cooking
I'm always looking for more vegetarian freezer meal ideas, so pass them this way if you have a favorite!
