Meal Planning and Freezer Meals

Meal Planning and Freezer Meals

How do you cope with a busy season of your life? People face difficulties all the time, and so do I. How do you manage to homeschool through challenges? The same way I work through challenges – by planning ahead.

Meal Planning and Freezer Meals

My husband was facing surgery last month, so I planned ahead. I filled my freezer FULL of dinners. I've done this and posted about it before, Gluten-Free + Costco + Freezer Cooking + Crockpot + Cheap = Meals. This time I bought the Costco Meal Plan #5 - 20 Meals for $150 - Gluten Free Freezer Cooking Plan {BASIC PACKAGE} from This $2.49 printable includes recipes and shopping lists to make 20 freezer meals in advance.  I chose it because the meals look familiar and I just wanted some help pulling it together quickly.

I set aside one day to put the ready-to-go meals in packs in the freezer. My husband and I will have meals to last us almost a month, plus lunches made from leftovers. I have my meal plan all made up. I'll be able to spend time with him as he recuperates, not having to think about what's for supper tonight, knowing that dinner is simmering away in the crock pot, or ready to pop into the oven.

You can plan ahead, too! Make sure you have a plan in place in case things go haywire. You can still homeschool through any challenges. Meal planning and freezer meals can help keep you sane, with just one less thing to think about. Plus, I don't know about you, but I simply feel more secure knowing what I'm making for dinner for the next month, because I'm just not so good at spur of the moment decisions.

How do you plan ahead in your home and homeschool? Do you enjoy meal planning and freezer meals? Please share!
