I realized sometime last week that April is a month of survival for me. There’s a lot going on in our household this month, so I devised a plan to make the month’s meals a little bit easier.
- I planned a month’s worth of dinners.
- I schemed easy lunches the kids can help make.
- I filled the freezer with ready-to-eat breakfasts.
Saturday night we invited the neighborhood boys over for pizza and a viewing of The Hobbit. I knew better than to try to feed the masses homemade pizza; Costco did the cooking. Once the movie started, I got cooking!
It was so exhilarating to be able to post this picture to instagram later that night:
Not only did I plan out several week’s worth of baked goods to add to our Breakfast Bar, but I did so in a way that was cheaper and healthier than if I had bought all these items at the store. Yay for freezer cooking.
Here’s what this month’s cooking plan entails:
- Cinnamon Apple Oat Cakes, 2 batches
- Eggs Florentine Casserole (baked, cut into portions, wrapped and frozen), page 275, 1 batch

Our house smelled so good that night! I’m thrilled that breakfasts will come together a little easier in the coming weeks. I plan to serve a variety of choices each morning from the above as well as fresh fruit, homemade juices, yogurt, and eggs.
If you’ve not yet started to make your own homemade convenience foods, I can’t encourage you enough to give freezer cooking a try.
