So freezer cooking at 8 months pregnant = no fun. The whole process of planning and picking the recipes, actually going grocery shopping, and then preparing the meals took about 3 days. It would have taken less time but when we went to go shopping on Saturday the shelves were pretty much bare. Who knew that a little snow storm would cause people to freak out and buy out the entire bread section? With that being said, I’m very glad that we have those meals ready for use when we bring Little T home. Which apparently is going to be soon based on my doctor :) So, without further adieu, here’s my process.
I started off by looking for recipes for freezer cooking. Let me say that they all seemed a little repetitive. There was a lot of mexican and italian inspired meals and I struggled to find some that were different. But I eventually did and I put them all on this idea sheet
This one was a little messy so I made another, more organized one
We went to get our groceries and this is what we came up with
Overall, I don’t think I would attempt freezer again. Maybe it was because I’m 8 months pregnant, but it was a lot of work. I know I’ll be grateful when it finally comes time to use them but I don’t think this will become my norm for cooking.
Here is the finished product
Heres to hoping that they actually cook how they should and that they taste great!
