Organizing: Meal Planning

I’ve been slowly getting into the Once a Month cooking idea. Not completely, because with my boys being picky eaters and my husband needing lunch as well as dinner (he works from home) I couldn’t possibly cook an entire month’s worth of meals in one day. But, three times now I have cooked and made more than one “batch” of the same meal, twice to freeze for future meals and once to share with a dear friend.

The two meals I made to freeze were from Fix, Freeze, Feast and they were both delicious, but you can find freezer recipes throughout the web, and of course, at The Martha’s website. Some recipes I will try next week are Chicken and Rice soup, Mini Meatballs, and her Basil Pesto, with one modification: I prefer to make mine half basil and half spinach. The original recipe with all basil can be a bit overpowering to me, and I like the idea of squeezing in some extra veggies wherever I can.

Got any freezer-friendly recipes you’d like to share?

  1. Neat idea, Claudia. I'm an avid cook and I always make more food than I should with the sole purpose of freezing it. It saves a lot of time, doesn't it. Great tip, darling. Hope you are going well.

  2. Good luck with the planning. I like to do this too and use my freezer a lot. Of course the end of the month gets a little tight with groceries as it's when the mortgage is due :-)Have a great day!
