Cooking for Two (Three)

Josh and I recently changed the way we cook.  Cooking dinner each night just wasn’t working for two humans and a dog.  We just are not able to eat the food fast enough between the two (three) of us- and the result was wasting tons! hate that.  Not to mention, we both work pretty long hours and by the time we come home, throwing together an entire meal doesn’t always happen.  Unfortunately, cereal dinner nights have become a repeat offender in our house 🙂 hehe.

So, in the nature of being thrifty and not living on cheerios alone, we cook a few main dishes on Sunday and freeze individual sized portions to eat throughout the week.  We usually make 10-12 servings of each dish- so as the weeks go on, we really only need to cook two additional meals to freeze and add to the collection.  At any given point, we have 5 or so options to choose from.. it works so much better!

Plus, we try to keep things as natural and preservative free as possible.  It might be a little cheaper to buy the pre-made frozen meals at the grocery store… but making them myself means I know exactly what goes into the mix and I can leave out things that I cannot pronounce 🙂

I am pretty sure that there are other mini-families struggling with the whole meal situation, so I thought I would start posting our meal plans and recipes for the week.  We are also pretty cheap and trying to save as much money as possible right now, so many of these meals can be done on a dime! can’t beat that, right?  I will post this week’s recipes soon!
