Ever since my One Hour “Meal Planning with a Twist” Experiment, I am convinced more than ever that my key to conquer meal time madness is to squeeze time into my schedule for bulk cooking. Whether it’s one hour or one straight day, it makes a tremendous difference in how my home runs for the month.
There’s another freezer cooking day planned for today and tomorrow, so I am going to benefit from the accountability and jump on in.
My boys just advanced Saturday to the National Championships for Pop Warner Football (more on that later), so we are leaving for nine days to Orlando.
I want to make as many freezer meals as I can to bring with me. I will have a kitchen and do not plan on eating out much during our time there, so taking a few steps of organization today and tomorrow will make our time so much more enjoyable.
Since I haven’t had to time to plan out my meals, I am doing a deep freeze clean out.
I’m pulling out chicken, ground beef and veggies, and will have inspiration hit in the next few hours.
I have two pots of beans that I will use for Soup, bags of black beans, and homemade refried beans.
I have my oven filled with potatoes for a baked potato bar at lunch, as well as potato skins and some potato soup.
Here’s is what I did last time with my Freezer Meals – Mexican Style. I am making a bunch of the Taco Casseroles.
My plan is to start some Baked Oatmeal for Breakfast right now.
I purchased more apples in the mountains for Homemade Applesauce in a Crock Pot
2 Chicken Pot Pies
Quick and Easy Lasagna
Mexican Spaghetti (which will be perfect for carbo loading those boys).
I am sure I will be adding/deleting as I inspect my freezer more closely and dig a little deeper. There are lots of things that need to be brought up from the depths of that deep freezer abyss.

EDITED TO ADD: If you are planning on attempting your first Freezer Day, a plan is necessary. Take it from me…a seasoned bulk cooking connoisseur.
