With a small family I carefully consider the food choices both in purchasing and cooking. I prepare a monthly menu plan to reduce cost and efficiently use up the foods that we have purchased. I try to reduce processed foods but some days it’s either frozen chicken nuggets for dinner or a peanut butter sandwich. When I do have bursts of energy for cooking or baking I like to try to prepare frozen items from scratch that I know our family will enjoy and that will be a healthier choice.
I’ve been inspired by Money Saving Mom and her “4 Weeks to Fill Your Freezer” series.
So far I have done several bread machine recipes. I tried her Cinnamon Rolls, today I made a loaf of bread with the intention of freezing it but it was just too good to not eat while warm so it became our loaf for the week. I even pre-sliced it.
This week I plan to make the Freezer-Friendly Ham & Cheese Pockets and the Freezer-Friendly Pizza Pockets. We do have a box of purchased frozen waffles but I’d like to make her Waffles when our current supply gets low.
Do you freezer cook? What is your favourite meal you have made and frozen for later?
