Freezer cooking doesn’t have to mean 2 days of non-stop cooking until you are worn out and never want to see another recipe. Use the method works best for you. Here are some options:
· Double or triple some of your family’s favorite meals. If you triple your dinners for a week, eating one recipe and putting two in the freezer you will have 10 freezer meals.
· Take a couple hours one day, make a triple batch of 4 different recipes. You will have in your freezer, 12 meals that you know your family will love when you serve them.
· I use a version of this method for holiday baking: cookies, candies and cakes freeze well and can be done ahead of time, not in the midst of the Christmas rush.
· My cooking group took this summer off of cooking together and my freezer was empting. I didn’t have any more meals to give away, so I did a mini-session on my own. I chose ground beef as a main ingredient. I made five lasagnas and a couple of meatloaves.
