Freezer Inventory – How to Keep Track of What You Have
As the weather gets cooler, you may actually feel like doing some batch cooking but there’s no room in the freezer to put all your goodies.
It’s time to clear out your freezer and start new. It doesn’t help much if you don’t know what you have in there. Doing a couple of hours of batch cooking is great but you need to eat what you’ve made in a timely manner. There’s no time, money or effort saved if you end up throwing out unmarked or old, unused food. It’s estimated that a 4-person family loses $1,500 a year on wasted food. What could you do with an extra $1,500 per year?

This my favorite meat sauce!! It’s an easy homemade Italian meat sauce recipe that is hearty and tasty. It freezes great so that makes it perfect for batch cooking. Easy go-to meal for busy weeks.

Mason jar salads are easy to prep, make lunches super convenient during the week, beautiful and super healthy!!
Tips on making delicious and healthy mason jar salads.
Bone broth is loaded with flavor and nutrients and can be made easily in your crock-pot. I always have it on-hand in my freezer. It’s great for sipping or as a base for soups, stews, or sauces. Also, the chicken cooked in the crock-pot is always flavorful and tender. I will freeze it in one to two cups packs and use for salads, soups, tacos, any recipe that calls for cooked chicken.
Instant Pot – Got One?
I love my Instant Pot. It has made my meal prep fast and easy. I have had mine for over 18 months now and I think I’m using it at least two times per week if not more. I can’t imagine my kitchen without it. It’s perfect for the person that is embracing cooking with real whole foods but doesn’t have the time or energy to spend hours in the kitchen.
