Life is full of seasons of business. One of those seasons is certainly the addition of a new little one to our families. There are many ways to prepare ourselves for such an event, and one of those ways is in the food department. (I come from an Italian family. Food is what we do. 🙂 )
After my 4th baby was born, and after meals were no longer being brought to us by the amazing women in our community, I was always grateful when I opened my freezer, after an especially busy day/night/day/night, and saw a meal waiting for me to remember, thaw, and eat it. Frozen meals can mean the difference between dinner and scrounging when the days and nights are especially long.
I am not a chef and I won’t pretend to be an expert on freezer meals and cooking. I can, however, pass you on to somebody who is. I found the information from The Pioneer Woman on this page especially useful. There are some great tips, tricks, and recipes included here.
Whether it’s preparing for a new baby or simply wanting to have a stockpile of food for the random busy days, you will thank yourself later when you reap the fruits of your freezer prep labor.
