I’m home from running Spencer to his day of classes at the homeschool academy and ready to dive in and tackle a big chunk of school with Mitch. Besides helping him study for his mid-term coming up at his co-op, I need to answer several waiting emails, write a Proverbs 31 devotion, do two loads of laundry, mop the kitchen and send a care package to my daughter.
Oh yeah….and my family would probably like something hot and delicious for supper tonight before they dash off to basketball practice.
Enter the Freezer Cooking Manual by 30 Day Gourmet.
I met the author of this fabulous resource many years ago when we both spoke at a Hearts at Home moms conference. As a busy mom with two small children and a baby on the way, I heard her speak of “quantity cooking”; putting up several main dish, side dish and even desserts in the freezer to take out and enjoy on those crazy, busy days.
I was hooked.
Now, before you tune me out….hear me out. I am not talking about “once-a-month” cooking where you assemble several complicated, casserole-ish, “glop-on-rice” dishes that are starchy, fattening and look like a church potluck gone bad.
I’m talking delicious, easy and family friendly meals that are easy to assemble, freeze well and reheat beautifully.
This book even is a sort of “freezer cooking for dummies” walking you through step-by-step how to plan, shop, prepare, freeze and serve the great dishes contained within its pages.
Oh, and it shows you how to do it even if you don’t have a separate freezer.
So, if you have a desire to make a big mess, either by yourself or with a friend or two, on one day, but buy yourself several days off of kitchen duty by doing so, I have a deal for you.
I carry this fabulous cookbook when I speak on organization and hospitality and let me tell you, it flies off the table! Well, I am not speaking on these two topics for several months, so I am clearing out my inventory.
I have about 10 Freezer Manuals left. They are normally $15.00 plus shipping and tax. However, I will sell the remaining ones to those of you who’d like one for $13.00 and I’ll cover the shipping and tax.
So, if you’d like to try making Cheeseburger Quiche, Chicken Divan, Taco Chili, Parsley Parmesan Chicken, Master Meat Mix (to use several different ways-from meatballs to meatloaf and more!) Frozen Peanut-butter Bars, Breakfast McBiscuits and the BEST bread machine mix EVER (that you can use to make pizza dough, calzones, bread sticks or cinnamon rolls) then email me at email@example.com. I’ll get your credit card info or give you my address if you’d prefer to mail a check.
Then, on one of your crazy-busy days, you can do what I’m going to do today.
Walk to your freezer and ask yourself, “What sounds good for supper tonight? Mexican? Italian? Good ole’ meat and potatoes?” Then pull it out, pop it in and enjoy! (oh….and wash much fewer dishes since there were no prep pans, just the baking dish!)
