When I first learned about freezer cooking I fell in love with the idea of “once a month cooking” – cook for a day, eat for a month. At the time I had fewer children and apparently a lot more time on my hands to do this. I planned elaborate cooking plans and I remember using my days off to freezer cook. The best part of all of this were the weeks that followed. I would literally pull out our entire Shabbos menu from the freezer and didn’t give it a second thought. It was pretty awesome!
But, in the years since I have become busier with work and kids and find myself having less time to spend an entire day cooking. Now I mainly do mini freezer cooking sessions, but still look forward to the day when I can do once a month cooking again.
Back in 2013 I wrote a series on how to plan a cooking day. I remember writing it. I was so excited to write my first series of posts. I spent a long time working on it and it was well received. It’s a bit out of date now (Ziplist has since been discontinued 🙁 ), but the ideas are the same, so I turned it into an easy to read infographic.
In conjunction with planning a freezer cooking day, check out my posts on my Freezer Cooking Must Haves – all the tools I use to make freezer cooking a breeze – and Freezer Cooking Handy Kitchen Hacks – some neat ideas for using what you already have to make your day more productive.
