Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Freezer meals make your night easier!

You won’t believe how easy this cooking method is! You dump all the raw ingredients into a freezer bag and pop it in the freezer. On cooking day, you add the contents of the bag and maybe a little water or broth to your slow cooker and then just let it do its thing! The prep day is a little long and messy but the benefit of having so much of the work done is very worth it.
