Well as we all know even the best intentions don't always work out the way we plan. After my corn salad post, I planned on preparing some new recipes throughout the week for all of your tasting pleasures but alas, life just got in the way. Between the school activities that the kids had going on, practices and games we relied pretty heavily on our freezer meals I had stored away.
Now let me tell you, I used to be intimidated by freezer meals. I had visions of two days worth of cooking, high grocery bills, and food that I wasn't really a fan of. I have since realized that there is no concrete plan for filling your freezer with food for later consumption. After learning my way around the coupon world, and learning that I could still cook the same way I love to cook while using my coupons, I also figured out that my stockpile of groceries could be made into meals for the freezer just by doubling or tripling a recipe. Now I routinely make three lasangas instead of one, multiple chicken potpies, and dozens of cinnamon rolls.
If you find your schedule rapidly getting too full to make dinner try this method. It works wonderfully for those nights that you have no time to fit cooking dinner into the schedule and saves on the pocketbook when you don't have to grab dinner on the go.
