A couple of months ago, my wife and I started making freezer meals that our son or my mother could just pop into the crock pot or oven before we came home from work. We did this because we get home from work around 4:30 pm – 5:00 pm every evening and do not feel like having to cook a big meal. By the time we get home, change into out of our work clothes and get started cooking dinner, we end up eating late at night–like 7:00 pm or 8:00 pm. My wife has gastroparesis, so she needs to eat dinner earlier than that so her food has plenty of time to digest before she goes to bed, which is by 10:00 or 11:00 pm every night. If she eats too late at night, then she has to go to sleep in the recliner so that she is not laying flat. If she lays flat in bed before her food is digested, then she gets sick and throws up all night.
The freezer meals are proving to be very convenient and are keeping us from eating late at night, which is helping my wife to be able to sleep in the bed like normal. It also helps us with portion control and keeps us from over eating. My wife got the idea to make freezer meals from Facebook (of course). There was a link to a site on how to make 20 freezer meals in 4 hours. I am going to share the link here:
She then surfed the web for other freezer meal ideas, and we were hooked. I really recommend that you try these recipes. They are easy to make, and super easy to cook when you need something convenient and ready to go! We also got into stockpiling some groceries, and this comes in handy when making freezer meals as we didn’t have to spend a lot of money to get the first batch of meals made up and frozen. So, if you are looking for an easy, inexpensive, time-saving way to make meals for your family, you should check out the link above.
