Freezer Cooking Days in January
Posted By Jessica Fisher On January 7, 2011 @ 12:00 pm In Freezer Cooking | 21 Comments
This month I am taking time to make the most of what we have , empty my freezer, and build a better pantry.
I’m also spending this time getting all my recipes in order and editing them for my cookbook . I had no idea that I had posted soooo many recipes over the last three years. I’m excited to revisit some old recipes in the coming months.
I am also doing some recipe testing and tweaking. I want this book to be the ultimate book for you to help you fill your freezer, feed your family, and free up extra cash. I can’t wait!
Since I am not cooking up something new to share this month, why don’t you check out some of these oldies that I found when I was digging through my archives?
Are you wondering what all of this hullabaloo is about freezer cooking? Well, it is a life-saving strategy to help you put hot, homemade meals on the table any night of the week. Bulk cooking, making many batches at one time, can save you time, money, and a few brain cells.
Each month, the first Friday and on through Monday, I share tips for making freezer cooking easier. Readers have the opportunity to link up, ask questions, and share ideas, recipes, and cooking plans.
Freezer cooking is not difficult.
In fact, there are quite a few simple ways to fill your freezer with homemade convenience foods . You don’t have to love casseroles to do it . You don’t even have to have a deep freeze . You can even do it on a gluten-free diet .
Are you ready to give Freezer Cooking a try?
If you’re new to the idea, check out these posts:
In order to add some consistency to our Freezer Cooking Days, like a regular schedule, I thought I would lay out the basics this month.
Schedule: Mark your calendars for the first Friday of every month and on into that weekend.
NOTE: You don’t have to cook that weekend, but share your updates with us at that time and tune in for news and information.
I’ll also be posting these regular features each month:
Share your plan for cooking in the comments section of that post.
These posts have been extremely popular in the past, such as how to make breakfast sandwiches freezer friendly . If you’ve got a freezer cooking question that you want answered, submit it in this form . We’ll feature one question a month.
Are you a writer who would like to share your freezer cooking experiences with others? I would love to feature your ideas during Freezer Cooking Days!
I will be choosing at least one guest post a month to share during the freezer cooking weekends, the first Friday of every month and the days following.
At the end of the Freezer Cooking Daze, we’ll share what we accomplished and how we plan to make it work for us in the coming month.
I’ll also be sharing a giveaway each month, starting in February.
Do you have a bulk cooking plan for January? Share it in the comment section so that other people can be inspired to make batch cooking make their lives easier.
