Freezer Cooking – August Edition

Two months ago there were two of us, last month there were four, this month…eight! We continue to have fun and grow, making this an uber-efficient freezer meal-making machine! This month’s grand total was $89.52 per person. Woo! We increased our chicken breasts to six per bag for most recipes from 5 last month, and also switched to frozen breasts in the interest of time. SO SO worth it! Thanks to all the lovely ladies that pitched in to make this month a success! Next month, we plan to move out of my house and into a room at the church, if we can secure the space. YAY! If you’re interested in joining us, please shoot me a message so you can get on the email list 🙂

First, back up a couple days, where I went to Sams Club and was that crazy mom buying 120 pounds of chicken with my two (loud) children. Oh boy.

Samantha and I were all over keeping things organized this month… as everyone filed in with their purchases, we dropped them off on the table so we could see most of everything.

Not just one but TWO handsome boys were here to hang out with us while we worked. Cass checked them out before heading upstairs for a nap 🙂

One of the meals being prepared, chicken cacciatore. This was SO yummy as we already had it tonight.

Carrie’s 30th birthday was today and she kicked it off freezer cooking with us!

There’s one person’s laundry basket ready to head home to a freezer. Eight of our families are eating a total of 80 giant meals this month!
