1. Great post! I have tried to start putting some stuff in the freezer but I haven’t really started the freezer meals. It is on my to do list so I guess I will have to bookmark this page and come back soon 🙂 Thanks for the post on my blog. I have stopped by a few times recently but I had a weird computer glitch that didn’t take my post…. so in my head, I commented but didn’t come back to figure out why it didn’t work!! Thanks for all your great posts.

  2. I enjoyed your article/post. As a person who cooks professionally (I manage Dierbergs cooking schools test kitchen), I have two thoughts. (1) The process of getting everything together and lined up is called “mis en place,” and roughly translates to “everything in its place.” Now, besides sounding fancy, you can get yourself organized and the assembly process will go much more quickly and smoothly. If you need 4 cups of onions and “think” you have enough but don’t you end up short some place. Chop onions before you head to the store and know that you have enough or need to pick up additional. Line ingredients up by recipe. It makes assembly that much quicker. The second things is (2) Do not partially cook meat and then freeze it. Either don’t cook it at all, or cook it completely. It is a food safety issue to bring meat into the temperature danger zone (41-140 F.) multiple times. The bacteria within can flourish at those temperatures. (I’m not suggesting you do this, but a warning for others). I love to add marinade to meat/poultry and then freeze. It marinates as it thaws. Good tips and techniques. I love to see more people cooking for themselves and their families; we tend to eat healthier meals and save money if we aren’t wasting what we buy. A freezer is a fairly inexpensive appliance (so much less than a fridge), so consider purchasing one next time you have a little spare money. It will pay for itself pretty quickly.
