Menu Plan Monday - Mega Cooking Edition


This week on Frugal Feasting we are going to be talking about Mega Cooking. Some people call this form of cooking Once a Month Cooking or Freezer Cooking or Batch Cooking. I call it Save My Bacon cooking!

I love having a ton of stuff in my freezer to pull out at the last minute. This week we will talk about how to do it, some great recipes, and things to think about before you start.

This week we are going to eat some freezer meals and some other really quick meals. I have a busy week ahead of me and need to not spend time in the kitchen.


Dinners:

Broccoli Cheese Soup (from the freezer), bread (made with my new KitchenAid stand mixer)
Cincinnati Chili (from the freezer), steamed veggies
Chicken Crockpot Thing, rice, veggies and ranch, fruit
Burrito Bowls
Homemade Mac and Cheese,
Broccoli Cottage Cheese Casserole (left over from last week)

For Breakfasts and Lunches I'm winging it. Maybe I should go to Organizing Junkie to get more ideas, huh?

Like you, I love having meals in the freezer. Just having some pre-cooked meats & soups helps save time in the evening. I'll be reading along this week to see what your tips & tricks are.
