This month is all about freezer meals! Freezer meals are an amazing way to get your cooking done for the week. Personally, I like to make big batches of meals and eat part of it while freezing the rest for later in the week or month.
Some families will take one day out of the week or month and cook all their meals out for that time frame. It is both time-consuming and time-saving. An entire day is set aside to cook meals for the week, but your meals are cooked and only needed reheated throughout the week. Whether you are an expert in preparing freezer meals or you’re brand new to meal preparation, I hope this list comes in handy as you’re planning your meals this month!
A few months ago, we launched the start of our new Instant Pot Meal Plan series. I’m brining you some of my favorite recipes that are all delicious and amazing!
