Be a Help for New Moms:A few months ago, my moms group got together to make meals for new moms. We each brought ingredients to make 5 freezer meals and assembled them together. The 5 of us made 25 meals to deliver to new moms and their families to bless them over the next few months. Great idea right? I think so.
Takin it one step further:I was frantically searching the fridge for something quick to feed my kids during dinnertime (the craziest time of the day). Normally, my husband Cole is just walking in the back door, two little girls are running through the house mouth wide open expelling a “wahhh” sound, my son Oren is repeatedly saying, “I’m hungry can I have (insert insanely unhealthy food option here)”, and always without fail my newborn is informing me via screaming that he is ready for some breast milk. I pull out something fast, rarely healthy, and serve it up because the home cooked meal I had planned just couldn’t get pulled together. I thought, “gosh it’d sure be nice to have some frozen meals” Light bulb!
So, I remembered what we did for new moms and I got together three friends. We each brought ingredients for 3 meals: potato soup, turkey garden sloppy joes, and chicken w/basil and tomato. We walked away with 3 meals for our freezers. We put them in food saver packaging,but really freezer safe ziploc bags would’ve worked. And voila! dinner: easy, simple, healthy, fast!
Our Family ate the Chicken meal a few days later with some steamed broccolini, grilled purple potatoes, and I got dinner out in under 15 minutes. Brilliant!
