Freezer Cooking, February 2019, Session One Recap

Last Friday, I had a small freezer cooking session, and shared the process on Instagram.

Freezer Cooking January 2019 Part Two

Pulling meals from the freezer is working simply mah-vah-lus, darling, so I made a few more freezer meals.  I didn’t have a lot of time this freezer cooking session, so I only made a few meals.  I’m still stocked up on lunch meals, but I added one more for variety, and I also added several […]

Freezer Cooking January 2019 Part One

Freezer Cooking June 2018

My mom is still in town, so I took advantage of that to have a freezer cooking session.  I want to stock the freezer because if we do begin ABA therapy, the office is 40 minutes from us, so I know we will be in the car A LOT, and it feels like we’re already […]
