We’re starting to run out of food in the freezer, and it’s time to start thinking about our next massive cooking session. This time, I’m not going to tackle as many recipes at once, and I’m not going to take off work to do the cooking, so it’ll all be Dad and I in the evenings after work. I’m going to start planning now, but I won’t go to the grocery store until January. In the next few days, I’m going to post our planning for other folks to follow along. Hopefully, it’ll make it easier for anyone else who wants to try their hand at freezer cooking. I’ve taken many suggestions from other websites on how to plan, and modified them to meet my needs, so take what works for you, and forget the rest.
Most of the planning is going to take place at Grandma’s while we’re there for the holidays. I also promised my mom that I’d help her make a few meals and leave them with her to show her how easy it is.
These are the general steps I follow, and as I post the details, I’ll link them in here:
- Pick your general recipes
- Plan your meals
- Write out all the prep work you need and decide what order you’re going to prep/cook in
- Write out your grocery list
- Go shopping
- Prep work
- Update your freezer inventory
