Last night DH and I had a mini cooking marathon to stock the freezer some. I'm thinking of doing this atleast once every 2 weeks and also cooking double of a dinner and freezing 1/2. Last night we made:
mac and cheese (x2)
Chicken marsala (x2)
2lbs of pasta divided in 1lb bags
assembled sirloin tips & carrots for crock pot (x2)
It took about 4 hrs start to finish including clean up but now I have 8 meals that I don't have to worry about. We both work full time and things get crazy during the week with kids, homework, baths etc. Now I can just pull out a pan of mac and cheese the night before to thaw and stick in the over night of for a 1/2 hr or so..freeing up some extra time to help with homework or getting kids showered!
Do any of you make fix & freeze meals? I'd love any tips you have or recipes!!
