Just a bit of freezer cooking

I will not be on the road for work (except day trips) for the next couple of weeks. Woo hoo! So today, in an effort to keep myself sane and catch up on things around here, I did a bit of freezer cooking. Not a ton, but enough to have a few meals started so that when I get home from work in the evenings I don't have to do a ton of prep work to get a meal on the table.

I went very very basic this time --- I browned up 8 meals worth of ground beef with onions and zucchini, and seasoned half of it with taco seasoning. I also cooked up four meals worth of chicken breasts and diced them. Those few things should make dinnertime much easier in the coming weeks.

For some, it just doesn't seem to be worth it to do just that small amount of prep work. For me though, I have the base done for quite a few meals -- with very little time invested and best of all.... very little clean up!

Next month I plan to do a bit more and I'm working on finding some good ideas and recipes, but for now, this will get us through.


  1. Let me know when you get ready to freezer cook...I can give you some recipes!

  2. I'm aiming for the 2nd weekend in May! So, please share!
