Do you use your freezer as part of your 3-month storage? If not, you should be! I know there are skeptics that say you shouldn't use your freezer in case of a power outage, but for a short-term emergency such as a job loss, money issues, etc, having food stored in your freezer could be a lifesaver. I love having a few freezer meals in my freezer for busy nights, nights that my kids cook, and the nights I just don't feel like cooking. This week's challenge is to freeze a few meals for a future need. Remember that freezer meals will only last about 3-6 months. Label them well, with the date and reheating instructions!! If there is pasta in your recipe under cook by a few minutes so it doesn't become mushy when thawing.
Dinner Is Ready blog for great info on creating freezer meals. I have used Deanna's method of making 30 meals in one day before and it really helped me when my kids were little and dinnertime was really stressful. Click here to see her blog.
