Recipes & Freezer Cooking
Here’s the thing. I can’t face making dinner every. single. night. An hour of cooking and hour of cleaning every night is just not my idea of a good time. Eating out is not a good solution, because Hi, I’m a tightwad, and it’s not very healthy. So every three months, I spend a week or two in a cooking frenzy and make a bunch of meals for the freezer.
From a financial standpoint, I have discovered that living this way has saved me a lot of money. I got sick of buying stuff on sale, putting it in the freezer, and then throwing it away 6 months later because it morphed into an unidentifiable gray lump. Now I never put anything in the freezer unless it’s cooked, or prepped for cooking. Grabbing dinner out of the freezer saves time, money, and gives me more time with the remote the kids.
A while back, I wrote a series of articles on Freezer Cooking, containing reasons why it’s a great way to live, and tips to help you get started.
