After a summer without full use of my right arm (due to a dislocated and fractured shoulder) and then putting our house on the market and moving to a new house and putting our kids into a new school, I did a miserable job of meal planning and eating at home. Really, I pretty much failed all summer at cooking and feeding my family well. We ate out more than we probably ever have in our whole time as parents. It’s truly been survival mode for months. It happens, right? But…I’m excited to be back on the bandwagon this week!
You’ll notice that many of my dinner entrees have an asterisk (*) by them. That’s because I’m working hard the next few weeks to re-stock my freezer by using my time wisely and doubling these meals. That way I have some family favorites ready to pop in the oven or warm up on the busy weeknights to come. To learn more about freezer meal cooking, start here or take a look at our HUGE freezer meal recipe collection.
