I wish I could plan meals better...YOU CAN!

I went grocery shopping this week in preparation of prepping and freezing 20 dinners and a nice older man asked about my printed list. He assumed it was a price list for my shopping but when I told him I was making 20 dinners to freeze he was astonished and commented on how difficult that must be.

But you know what? It's really not! You just need to do a little work up front and then you're golden!

So I wanted to share what I do BEFORE I even get to the grocery store to buy anything with you!

1 - Pick out recipes! If you're just starting out, try picking 3-5 easy, minimal ingredient recipes. Some great go to's are chili, shredded anything (chicken/pork/beef), and pot roasts!

2 - Make a list of all the ingredients you'll need from the recipes. I like to use an excel document so I can organize all the like items together without having to rewrite anything. 😁

3 - Go through your pantry, cupboards, refrigerator, anywhere you store food and spices really, to see what you already have. If you have the ingredient already on hand you can cross it off your grocery list! (You can also check to see what you have while picking recipes if you want to use up items before buying anything new, this is a great way to cut down on waste too!)

4 - With your final grocery list in hand you are now ready to head to the store and pick up everything you need for your freezer meals! And don't forget to add freezer bags to that grocery list 😊

When I get home from the grocery store I like to put all the ingredients that don't need refrigerated or frozen on a little folder table in the corner of the kitchen so everything is visible and handy to start prepping!

Now, I'd love to hear from you! What are some of your go to dinners during the fall and winter months?
