I did it. I made food for the whole month, or most of it, all at once. Okay, maybe not all at once. But I used crock-pot meals to make it easy and fast. No oven use here, thank you very much! Way too hot for this girl, in Arizona’s summers! I also made breakfasts, and sides. Basically as much as I could stick in my freezer, I cooked up. With plans to cook more to fill the gaps, as those gaps appear. I haven’t forgotten Jeremiah either. He has foods ready to thaw/cook/eat as well as try ours, of course.
I’m so TIRED, sore, HOT...I shopped that morning, came home, rested for about 1 hour, put the child to sleep and went into the kitchen and knocked out 10 meals (which give leftovers as well, so 20). Then I rested to let those freeze so I could stack them for a better fit. And to thaw some beef to make another few meals. And I’m waiting to finish the breakfasts until we have room in the freezer. I organized my freezer, and didn’t have the room I thought I would!
But let me tell you, I felt/feel SO accomplished. Making crock-pot meals is fast, easy and simple. Much faster than some of the other ideas I’ve seen out there.
I’m praying we like this method. Why? Because then I can have some food ready for when baby arrives and it’s easy peasy to toss a meal into that ol’ crock pot, hit a button and away we go!
