Last week, between the sick days (both my daughter and me) and three snow/ice days off school, I managed to fill the freezer with a several casseroles and bags of slow cooker meals. It felt great! Going into this week, we're expecting better weather and hopefully we'll all be healthy. I'll cook when I can but it's good to know those meals are in the freezer to pull out and make dinner prep easy. A good goals is to add one or two more freezer meals to storage each week so we don't run out.
