                                                           And I wish it was this neat!

 So I did try the whole the month worth the meals...the answer I got back was FAILURE! But in a good way. I ran out of room in stand up freezer...hahahh

I had 2 pans of lasagna...which by the way we ate one pan and it was delish :) and one meal actually end up making to meals and there were still meals in the freezer from two weeks ago so I guess I will only be two week sessions and go from there.

There are some good books that have checked out from the library and I actually had bought thanks to one of the Borders books stores going out of business here in Washington.

Fix Freeze Feast: This book uses the warehouses to help make meals and it makes up to 4 meals and it makes 4-8 servings depending on the dish. There are meat dishes, sweets, appetizers, and breakfast.

More Don't Panic Dinner's in the Freezer: This book makes nice dishes that even some picky eaters would eat except my son but we all know that is because he's vegetarian. There are veggie meals too in this book as well. I really like this book that I have copied alot of the recipes and now I own a copy.

Once A Month Cooking & Family Favorites: I got these for a steal at Barnes and Nobles. we love the Smothered Burritos! A must buy for getting involved in freezer meals! They have it split up into two week menus and one month menus. I got mine in the bargain book section for about 5$ each and you can use coupons if you have them, and if you don't have the paper ones on you pull it up on your smart phone and they will scan them there in the store HOW frigging cool!

I hope to add more books as I review them and some of the recipes too. I hope this helps us all to become budget friendly cooks and have ready meals without all the salt and preservatives that you find in the freezer section of the food stores.
