This weekend took a sudden cold turn here in the Deep South. I'm not complaining, considering my parents in West Virginia are supposed to get 4-6 inches of snow in the next 36 hours! Crazy, crazy weather.
My friend Suzanne and I have decided to try our hand at freezer cooking, and this week we're going to test some recipes. Both of us are busy homeschool moms, plus she works as a nurse. We're hoping that by planning and preparing ahead of time, we can serve our family healthy, nutritious meals throughout the week.
We're trying some of our families' favorites to see how they freeze, plus we're going to add a couple of new ones. If you have any great tried-and-true freezer meal ideas, please leave me a comment or link. I'd love to hear from you! I already cook and freeze shredded chicken and ground beef, but any recommendations of how to use them would be welcome, too!
Now on to this week's menu:
Stuffed pepper casserole, broccoli
Ranch Bacon Chicken, mashed potatoes
Pasta with Very Veggie Sauce
Beef chimichangas (freezer meal)
Homemade pizza (I'm going to prebake the crusts and freeze, then finish preparing them today)
Haven't decided, but will probably be a double batch of something I've already served this week! LOL
