Freezer Meal Co-op

Have you ever heard of a freezer meal co-op? Me neither!  Well, I’m here to tell you that it’s fantastic!  A group of friends got together recently and decided to make a massive amount of food and share it with each other.  This is what happened!

 We worked in 2 shifts.  Due to space and the need for cooktops. The first shift cooked in a church kitchen.  We all brought our kids with us and were totally out numbered by the kiddos!  But they had just as much fun as we did in the kitchen!  The second shift was able to make everything in one person’s home.

Prior to our cooking day we all picked a freezer friendly recipe, then shopped for all the goodies.  We brought everything we needed to cook with us and had a huge cooking party.  Each person made 20 of the same meal.  Then we divided all the meals into freezer bags and then traded them off with each other.

Lots and lots of food!

 Lots of stirring.  And yes, do you notice that belly sticking out in the picture?  That’s my baby in there!!!

Here is my favorite part about this cooking co-op.  Some of my friends aren’t as weird as I am and don’t love to cook everyday.  And this is a GREAT way to make sure that more families are eating home-made meals.  It’s so much better than drive-thru, fast food, store bought stuff.

 Here are some of the recipes we used:

Indian Chicken Curry

Turkey Tetrazzini 

Baked Cheesy Spinach Tortellini 

Beef Stroganoff

Black Bean Turkey Tacos

Chicken and Rice

  It is such a wonderful feeling to have my freezer stocked with meals!  Before Miss Ava was born I cooked like crazy to build up a stash in our freezer.  And now I’m due to have another little baby any day, and it feels incredible to have this checked off my 4-mile-long To-Do List.

I am so blessed to have such a wonderful group of friends and fellow moms!

Cheers to you all!
