This week I’m making freezer meals! Am I the only one who hates cooking in the summer? The thought of heating up the kitchen by turning on the oven when it’s already over 100 degrees outside makes it really hard for me to motivate myself to cook. By making freezer meals now before it gets too hot here in Texas, I am able to serve my family healthy meals without spending a lot of time in the hot kitchen!
I will be making doubles of all of these meals and I will be making multiples of a couple of them for a meal exchange with friends! That is another way to stock your freezer without spending a lot of time and money. Making two or more of a meal you are already cooking only takes a few extra minutes.
