I'm spending the day filling the freezer with goodies. I've got dough for rolls in the bread machine, found some blueberries in the back of the freezer for some muffins, and I'm making a batch of homemade chicken noodle soup to stock up the freezer. The thing that saves me every week is knowing that I have back-up in my freezer. Sometimes I don't have time to put something in the crockpot before I leave in the afternoon for work and other times I am so tired when I get home I don't want to make dinner. Having muffins in the freezer for snacks or a quick breakfast streamlines my morning and soup and rolls can be a quick heat up dinner on a crazy night. There is no need to buy pre-packaged freezer meals as long as you plan ahead. If you don't have all day to spend stocking your freezer then it's easy to just double a recipe during the week and store half of it in the freezer. Before you know it your freezer will be full and you'll always have a back up plan on a crazy day without any extra work.
