5 Easy Freezer Meals for Back to School
Freezer meals have been my go-to for several years. They are easy to prepare and it’s such a relief when you have freezer meals at your fingertips during Back to School week.
There’s no reason it has to be a whole day affair with you tied to the kitchen, or wondering if you need to buy a deep freezer to house these meals. Seriously, I usually plan 5 or so meals planned, and do all the prep in an hour or so on a Sunday afternoon. Then I always have something I can just pull out of the freezer when I know it’s going to be a super hectic week – no panicking or stressing on what’s for dinner and no giving in to drive through meals out of desperation. Here are five to get you started.
Bacon and Vidalia Pork Chops
