Sometimes I bite off more than I can chew.
I am woman enough to admit it and stubborn enough to deny it at the same time.
I knew that I was going to be having surgery last month, so I decided to cook and freeze as many meals as possible at the beginning of the month in order to take care of my family without having to actually do anything.
I found the site 30 Meals in One Day and started planning meals for the month with the program I purchased.
I added some recipes from other cookbooks and adjusted the instructions accordingly for freezing.
The program makes it really easy to create a single shopping list and print all the recipes and labels.
Let me show you how much food I bought for the month.
(3 meals and 2 snacks a day for 4 people. I guess that was more than 30 meals… Hmm.)
And that’s not all of it.
There was more in both of my freezers.
I didn’t manage to get all the meals done in one day, but I did get it all done before surgery thanks to a little help from my favorite Butthead.
I am so glad I did it though.
Actually, I hope to do again soon.
Maybe not meals for a month, but even 15 frozen meals stashed away in the freezer could really make mealtimes easier. Especially on the days I just don’t feel like cooking.
(I know those nights are going to happen more often once the weather starts heating up.)
