Once A Month Freezer Cooking

Two of my goals for 2010 are to be more mindful of what I put into my body and to manage my home more efficiently. I am hopeful that freezer cooking with help me in both areas. With being in Nursing school, I am away from home 3 evenings a week. I wasn’t prepared this past fall and ended up eating drive-thru more times than I care to admit. Inspired by the ladies at Money Saving Mom and Fishmama, as well as Once A Month Mom I am hopeful that this endeavor will help me to eat healthier and save money.

My plan is to prepare all of these items on Sunday when I have someone to watch my 2 & 3 year old children. Some of the recipes I am doubling or tripling and I will note that with the recipe. I will update once I have finished on how the day went and post pics of my accomplishments that day. These are all new recipes for my family so I will also post after we try each one on how I, my husband, and children liked or didn’t like it.

    Hello Shauna!
    What a great idea to do freezer cooking! I’m going to have to try that. Are you using a specific ‘freezer cooking’ cookbook or are you just making things you already know freeze well? I look forward to reading your new blog! Mine are over here at… http://www.homeschoolbloggercom/theadamsfamilyfaith for my ‘Raising Rockstars’ page and then our family update one at http://www.homeschoolblogger.com/theadamsfamily
