At the end of February my mom came to town, and what did I want to do with her? Make freezer meals. They weren't exactly whole meals, but things that make dinners SOOO much easier during the week. We made and froze grilled chicken pieces, diced peppers and onions, shredded cheese, taco meat, and spaghetti sauce.
Meal Preparation is so much easier and less time consuming! It's so nice to take out a bag of spaghetti sauce in the morning and throw together a lasagna. Whenever I need chicken for a stir fry or veggies for a pizza, they're ready to go!!
I spent around $80 to fill my freezer, and then just reduced the amount I spent on our weekly frocery trips to account for the freezer meals.
This monthly task is wonderful for us!
