Why Stock Your Freezer?

Like many families out there I am often pressed for time to get dinner ready. I am also allergic to onions and garlic which makes it hard to get any convenience foods. My solution is meals that can be prepped during the day or meals that I prepared previously and froze. I’ve also had to undergo numerous surgeries that made cooking hard or nearly impossible for a time. This method of cooking saved us during those weeks. This is also a great option for mamas about to welcome a new baby or when you know you will have house guests or a very busy season of life coming up.

Don’t Make It Too Hard

I’ve shared some of this information in previous posts. I don’t like doing a full day of food prep. It’s overwhelming, and hard to achieve because you run out of pans or food or space. Instead I double almost every meal I make (or some portion of it) to put in the freezer for future use. This post focuses on the first week of the month long stock your freezer plan. It will include a shopping list and list of what will be stocked in your freezer along with links to the recipes for each day.
