Wrapping up 31 Days of Freezer Cooking

Whew, what a month! I've spent all month long filling up my freezer with all sorts of fantastic dishes. There were a couple items that didn't quite make it into the freezer or maybe are already gone. But that's okay, I'll be happy when school starts in a few weeks that I did this. We all know how crazy that first month is especially.

I really wanted to have variety when I set out to do this series. I hope I've armed you with new inspiration and recipes to do a little freezer cooking on your own time. Don't be overwhelmed to do it all at once, pick a couple recipes to start with when you have an extra hour or so on your hands. Or simply double your dinners for a week, you'll have an easy five main dishes right there. A freezer swap is another great alternative. Gather a small group of friends and spend the afternoon cooking away, each person goes home with a nice variety of meals.

Whichever route you decide to go, I know you'll appreciate the little bit of work you spent prepping nutritious meals ahead of time for your family. You'll find your evenings might not be so frantic and maybe even allow for just one more story at bedtime.  You might even notice a decrease in how often you're tempted to eat out. In the end that's both good for your health and your pocketbook!

I'll leave you with links to each and every recipe this month. That way it's in one easy location for you to browse through. You'll find all ingredients needed along with directions in each post. Good luck and happy freezer cooking!
