This week’s 4 part series is going to be on Freezer Cooking!
This is something that I did for my family when I worked full time. My husband and I were on opposite schedules, he would often be exhausted after picking the kids up from daycare that he’d stop and pick up fast food on the way home.
As a working Mom, I felt guilty. I didn’t want my family eating out every night therefore, I incorporated freezer cooking in our lives. I would spend one entire weekend cooking up 30 different meals and all my husband had to do was come home and heat it up.
Now as a stay at home mom, I haven’t really done much freezer cooking, however I plan on getting back into the habit, this way on those nights full of activities or just the lazy I don’t want to cook days, I’ll have something in my freezer.
Let’s get started shall we?
Some of you may not be familiar with freezer cooking. Freezer cooking is about making your life easier. You’re preparing meals ahead of time, such as breakfasts, lunches, dinners, side dishes and other ingredients you can use to make a meal. It’s to help you save time in your kitchen and alleviate stressful evenings, giving you more time to spend with your family.
Picture this – Mom, what’s for dinner? You reply, I don’t know. Mom, I’m hungry! You reply, I know sweetie, mommy will start cooking soon. The clocks ticking away and you realize anything you make will take about an hour or so, exhausted you decide to call in for Pizza instead. – Sound familiar?
Now imagine this instead… Mom, what’s for dinner? You reply, (opening your freezer seeing all of these prepared meals) and you list…… Whatever you decide is just a heat up away.
Aren’t you excited? If so, be sure to join me tomorrow and I’ll show you the different methods of Freezer Cooking.
