I have pulled together some family favorites and some favorites from our members, so I could provide the BEST back to school freezer meals list!
Back to school is a busy time. After the clothes, shoes, supplies, forms, and orientations – chances are the last thing on your mind is dinner. Or maybe it’s on your mind, but you have zero energy to make it happen. Freezer meals are about to become your new best friend, so let me introduce you…
Freezer meals save you time because you only have to set aside one window of time to assemble all the meals. You can also save money with freezer meals, since you are able to buy ingredients on sale in large amounts. Less money and less waste, means less stress for the busy home chef like yourself.
Sounds like the best way to tackle the back to school blues to me!
