Freezer Meal Days

It's so great to have main dishes, and also side dishes and desserts to pull out of the freezer on busy days.

Making freezer meals also frees us from being in the kitchen every day preparing meals, which is handy for busy moms of little ones, as well as handy in these "empty nest" years that my husband and I are in now. Here are a few posts on some of the freezer meals days that I've been blessed to have with some of my grown daughters.
