Freezer Cooking after Bedtime (or at naptime)

See the Menu Plan here.  You can print it too if you would like.
What I am doing is mainly just cooking the main ingredient of the meal and then also cooking up some sides and breads.  You can see on my menu that I have 8 weeks of meals ready.  I do "Leftover Buffet" once a week and a pizza night once a week.  I plan for 5 meals a week.  Fortunately, I have most of the meat from this menu already, I just have to buy mostly pork chops and potatoes with a few "extras" so this shouldn't cost a lot.  As usual, I go by the pantry principle, which is to keep my pantry stocked.

    1. I used to do "Leftover Buffet", but we never have any leftovers anymore! Lol. If we do, Daniel takes them to work for lunch.

    2. What a neat idea! You've inspired me to try and do the same thing. Good luck, and I cant wait to see how it works out for you.

      I always try to make a little more because I do have to pack Ryan's lunch every work day as he can't leave for lunch. But we always seem to have some things here or there that need to be eaten up. Of course, you have more people in your family than we do!

    4. Great organizing!
      Would love to know how you got the chart in your post!


    I love comments!
