Want to cut down on the time you spend in the kitchen? Freezer Cooking can help you do that!
My parents came for the weekend. It was a really nice visit. What was especially nice was to be able to pull out a week’s worth of meals to send home with them. My dad and mom are doing a Whole 30 right now. Mom mentioned that she was going to have a busy week and wasn’t sure how to keep Dad eating all the right stuff.
I find it really sweet that she still cooks for him even though he’s the retired one. Ha! Anyway, what fun it was to pull out meat sauce, taco meat, meatballs, and marinated and cooked chicken to send home with them. Since I packaged the meals for our family, those meals will go pretty far at their house.
And all the time Mom will save this week?
Oh yes, Daughter of the Year Award! Awesome!
