Have you heard of “cook for a day, eat for a month”. The idea is to spend one day cooking all your meals for the entire month and then freeze them. I have always wanted to do this but just cannot set aside an entire day to cook, much less think of 30 different meals to make. Plus, I don’t really like the idea of having to cook things twice. First when preparing, and then after defrosting.
The best thing is that there is no pre-cooking required!! You just chop up all the veggies and dump everything into plastic bags and put in the freezer. Label the bags with the name of the dish and the amount of time it needs to cook in the crockpot. No need to defrost before putting in the crockpot. My husband and I spent about 1.5 hours on Sunday night chopping and I have enough meals for the entire week!!!
