March Freezer Cooking
My March Freezer Cooking is really a necessity to get through the next two weeks with nothing left in my grocery budget until the next payday. My goal is to prepare things that will make easy, inexpensive meals and keep me out of the store and away from restaurants and take out. I need to accommodate breakfast, boxed lunches, snacks and dinners from my pantry. I think that by doing some freezer and advanced cooking I can achieve tasty healthy meals for my family without entering the grocery store.
Here’s my plan for cooking over the next 3-4 days:
Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs and Sausage (I have some canned tomatoes and ground beef, ground turkey, sausage as well as some tomatoes in the freezer)
Banana Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins
Cake Mix Cookies (with blue and red sprinkles – Go USA!!)
Roasted Turkey (leftovers to be used for sandwiches, pot pie, stock and soup)
Turkey Pot Pie
My Menu Plan for this week springboards off my freezer cooking efforts. See my Pantry Challenge Menu Plan Monday post for details. For more Freezer Cooking ideas check out the March Freezer Cooking posts at Money Saving Mom and Life as Mom.
I'll be posting on Wednesday with the results of my freezer cooking.
