Things have changed in our household. My office has moved and now I will be driving farther everyday. Normally Brett and I do all of our grocery shopping on Friday nights for the weekend and following week. We kinda got out of this habit since I drive by a grocery store everyday.
Now that I am driving farther I don't want to commit to stopping on my way home nor do I want to cook a full meal everyday. Brett does cook too but we both are so tired after work that neither of us really want to cook.
We decided that after this week we are going to start prepping and cooking the bulk of our meals for the following week on either Saturday or Sunday.
How are we going to do this??? I will be honest. We haven't put a ton of thought into this yet. That is why I am giving it a week. Today I researched some freezer meals, plans, etc. Checkout my Pinterest Board HERE. Of course... all good research comes from Pinterest!
On Friday evenings we will checkout our pantry, freezer and fridge and make a list of the ingrediants we have. My goal is #1 to quit wasting food and #2 to spend more time planning for the week. We will also create our grocery list and shop!
Allrecipes.com is a great resource to look up ingredients for meal ideas.
Saturday or Sunday will be our prep day. We will prep all ingredients and cook meals.
Our plan is to cook as much as possible, portion ingredients out and freeze.
Do you freezer cook? What are some of your fav recipes??
