Make One Freeze One Menu Plan

Make One Freeze One Menu Plan

This week we are talking all about freezer meals!

December is one of the busiest months of the year for many people. It is full of holiday planning, shopping, cooking, family gatherings, and events. In our house we also have a December birthday to add into the mix.

This week’s menu plan is all about making December meals easier. We are making one and freezing one all week long.

If you have time every night this week make dinner for your family, but make extra to freeze. You will be making one meal and freezing one meal. By doing this early in the month, the rest of the month will be so much easier.

If you are cooking for just two or three people you can probably just divide the recipe in half. If you are cooking for a large family or a teens like I am, you will need to double or triple the recipes in order to have enough to freeze. But no matter how you do it, all the meals on this week’s plan freeze well.

The last night I have planned for just cooking up a bunch of chicken and rice and freezing them. This works great for making soups, casseroles, fried rice, and many other things. The day I cook them I will probably just make a quick chicken soup or mexican chicken type casserole for dinner using some of the chicken and rice.

We can’t forget about breakfast. I included several breakfasts that work great for making ahead and freezing.

Now for the menu plan!
