Freezer Cooking, Anyone?

Just wanted to give you a head’s up that I’ll be hosting an October freezer cooking day this weekend. If you’ve done any cooking over the last month, come ready to share. If you wanna get cooking, now’s the time!

My good friend and freezer cook extraordinaire is handing the reins over to me for a season.

For the next couple months, I’ll be your hostess on the first weekend of every month. So mark your calendars and get ready to freezer cook! (November 5-8, December 3-6, and January 7-10)

Stay tuned for all sorts of new developments, including

  • new recipes
  • freezer cooking for all kinds of diets, including low carb and vegetarian
  • tricks and tips for making the most of every minute

  1. Do you know when you’ll do your next Booking It link up? I don’t want to miss it! :-)

  2. So the week after Christmas [and perhaps a week next summer], my family of four is going on vacation to stay in a timeshare. Our budget is tight, so I’d prefer to do some freezer cooking ahead of time so that we aren’t eating out much, and especially so I don’t have to spend my vacation in the kitchen. My concern is that some of the units only have a microwave in the kitchenette, rather than a full stove/oven kitchen. Do you have a list of microwave-only [for the final cook/reheat - I can use my home stove/oven as needed BEFORE freezing] recipes?

      @Kelly, taking meals on vacation is a wonderful idea! It’s so freeing — from guilt, work, and frustration finding a restaurant.

      We went to the mountains once and stayed in a cabin. I took my crockpot which was a wonderful for roasts, chilis, and soups. You could even do baked potatoes. As for micro-reheating, you can do frozen burritos, taco meat, some casseroles (like enchiladas), the aforementioned soups and chilis. Hope that helps. Have fun!

  3. Can’t wait! We’re actually taking the kids to Disney World in 10 days and I cooked up some things for the freezer to take with us. We’re taking our crock pot to make a rotisserie style chicken and using leftovers for another meal. Just a little planning and I think it will save me a few gray hairs :)

    • Be sure to take some snacks for the days at Disney. We have visited many times and I always have snacks and drink pouches for my kids. They each had a small backpack and were allowed to eat/snack when they needed.

      Now that they are older (17-23) they still carry backpacks when we go and stock them with granola bars, frozen water bottles w/single serve drink mixes, etc.

      This saves us hundreds of dollars throughout the week! We do eat one family meal per day at the park. Those meals are very special and the kids can remember each one throughout the years and often talk about them.

      Enjoy your trip! Take lots of pictures!

  4. I’ll be joining you! Just have to figure out what to make. lol

    I love your addition of vegetarian and low carb meals. I’ll test them out if you need!

    :) Allie

  6. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As a vegetarian I am thrilled about the new recipes. This will jump start my freezer cooking as I have never done it before. Thank you!

  7. Thank you so much for featuring low carb recipes for the freezer! Can’t wait! DH is diabetic and this will make my life easier! thank you for all you do! You definitely inspire me!

    • Jessica Fisher says:

      Well, I would love the feedback as to what y’all eat and what a normal plate looks like. That would help me help you. ;)

  8. I can’t WAIT to see some vegetarian recipes! I’m a vegetarian, but my husband and two kids aren’t, so needless to say freezer cooking hasn’t been all that easy for me! I wait with anticipation!!

  9. I’m ready! I’ve been saving and finally found a good deal on a freezer for my garage. It’s beautiful :)

    It’s time to stock that baby up!

  10. Thanks for posting the weekends you will be doing freezer cooking. That really helps with the planning. I’ll be doing a session with just turkey items next week as I have a turkey to get cooked. But for the December cooking I want to do a major freezer cooking session or two, as starting in January I’ll be student teaching and finishing up classes and want to make those first few months of the year as easy as possible when it comes to meals.

  1. [...] by breaking it up like this).I’ll still be posting an occasional freezer-friendly recipe, but I’m handing off the hosting of the monthly Freezer Cooking Day link-ups to FishMama for now (she so generously offered to take over the shouldering of it for me!). I may pick it back [...]

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
