Why didn’t I think of this before? 

I love to cook up batches of meals and throw them in the freezer to enjoy later.  It used to be that I would freeze the food in meal size portions for dinner, and inevitably there would be leftovers that I would use for my lunch the next day.  However, in the last 6 months or so, as my children have grown and so have their appetites, there are no longer any leftovers.  That leaves me scrambling to come up with a lunch for myself and my daughter.  (My other daughter will contentedly eat peanut butter and jelly every day if I let her.)

When I had little freezer cooking sessions over the last few weeks, I decided to freeze the food in family meal size portions and in smaller bags for me and the girls for lunches.  This works like a charm, and I now have a nice rotation of meals for us for lunch time.  It is a bit like having my own frozen meal from the store, but this one is much cheaper, healthier and tastier.  Works for me!
