Today is the 31st day of this series, 31 Days of Freezer Cooking. If you missed a post, I’ve got them all catalogued right here. I’m stunned how quickly October has flown by.

If you’re new to freezer cooking, welcome! You will want to join me each month on Life as MOM when I share Freezer Cooking Days. Or daze, depending on how you look at it.

I’m coming off the heels of a mega cooking session, so I’m feeling a little woozy. Woozy, but glad that the freezer is filled.

On the first Friday of each month on Life as MOM, I post about my month’s freezer cooking adventures while readers share theirs. It’s a great time to swap notes, share recipes, and generate more good ideas to keep the freezer filled and our tummies happy.
Come by Friday when I share my latest adventure in freezer cooking that resulted in over 20 meals for my family to enjoy throughout the busy holiday season. I’ll even be sharing a free downloadable cooking plan featuring recipes from my book.

  1. I was doing great with freezer cooking – and then the hurricane happened! (we live in NJ) We had a candlelight/flashlight dinner party with friends last night to use up the frozen meals before they went bad. Ah well, we’ll try again next month. 🙂

  2. Linsey, hope you and all other Hurricane Sandy readers are with power and back to “normal.” I learned about freezer cooking when our oldest was a baby and she is now 16 (we now have 3 more!). We live near Houston, TX, and evacuated for Hurricane Katrina and 3 years later with Ike. My freezers were full with Ike – I had just done a HUGE cooking session with a friend a few weeks beforehand. For anyone out there discouraged at similar situations I wanted to share our experience. Yes, my initial reaction was “I just spent ALL that time shopping, prepping and cooking all of that food.” But, we were blessed and didn’t lose our house or sustain damage other than to our fence. Perspective kicked in quickly. My husband was able to take a lot of the food to work (power was out all over and grocery stores were not up and running for days.) Also, due to the skills I had from freezer cooking I was able to help cook a lot of spaghetti sauce for the local communities that were devastated by Ike for which our local school PTAs organized food drives. So, take heart and remember the money and time saved by freezer cooking. Serving others can also be an unexpected blessing!

  3. Hey! This isn’t related to this post, but I thought you might be interested. A crunchy CA blogger that I read did an analysis of Prop. 37 (about GM foods), and I thought it might interest you. Here’s the link-
