My neighbor Liz and I have been talking about getting freezers meals together forever! Well, maybe like a year, but the day has finally come! We actually set a date, got our recipes, and time to prepare!
The reasoning behind freezers meals are convenience and cost effectiveness. Do a bunch of work now, have little to do later.(FYI, that is my favorite type of work) The neighbor and I each picked four recipes and we doubled up so in total we both should have 8 dinners for our families. When I was picking out meals on Pinterest my criteria was 1. I can just dump it in the slowcooker 2. It could be stored in a plastic bag. I have a small freezer so I don’t have a lot of restate for big disposable pans, but it was harder than I thought finding recipes. To be clear, there are a lot of soup recipes but I wanted something a little heartier. Something with a little more substance to it!
All in all, we each have 9 meals costing in total $220.
Here how it looks broken down
$12.20/meal (for a family of 4)
Not bad at all. This is my first experience with freezers meals so I can’t wait to see the results, one of the recipes I picked was a ravioli lasagna and I am a little worried about that… It might not be that great, sorry neighbors.
