In February, we found out we were pregnant.
In July, we moved away from both of our families. All of our babysitters, all of our help.
So, knowing that our baby boy would be arriving just a few months later, and knowing that all of our help was over 400 miles away, I figured I better start stocking our freezer!
We purchased a chest freezer for the garage (super cheap thanks to a coupon and grabbing the floor model!), and got to work. I planned meals that overlapped on ingredients, to save some more money. A little shopping, a lot of chopping, and our freezer is full of at least two weeks worth of breakfasts, lunches, and dinners!
When Nathaniel arrived, our new church family blessed our socks off with meals for the first month or so. We also had a few people come to help us, and many of them cooked for us. We’ve been on our own without any help for about a week now, so we’re just now diving into all of these freezer meals! So far, everything has been super yummy. Each meal feeds our family of 4 (only 3 of us eating though, really) for at least 2 days, with leftovers. The list below outlines the recipes I used, with links for you!
I really love freezer cooking, and I’m thinking of making it a monthly thing. I saved so much money, and our meals are set for the next two weeks! I’m thinking of joining OnceAMonthMeals.com, but we’re going to work through the rest of the meals in our freezer first. 🙂 What about you – have you done any freezer cooking? Do you use a membership like OnceAMonthMeals.com, or do you find your own recipes online?
