Reader Question: How I Freeze

October 19, 2009

Here's a reader question from Emily B.

Q: I was wondering when you do freeze meals. Do you make a meal double and freeze the other one, or do you make a week’s worth of meals on a Monday, or how does this work for you? Thank you for your time and the great blog! Emily

A: It can be done many different ways. And it all kind of depends on the amount of freezer space you have.

Last year we lived in a single floor apartment that was very small so when I froze meals I would make two to eat that night and one to freeze. I would do that weekly and then always eat a freezer meal on Monday nights. That meant a constant rotation of meals through our small freezer and a day off for me at least once a week.

We have now moved to a Townhouse with an attached garage which houses our full size, stand up freezer. Now I have the freedom to spend one entire Saturday assembling meals and have enough for a month's worth. I can also make large batches of cookies, side dishes, meatballs, etc.

Hope that answers your question!
