Freezer Meal - Part 5


Practical Tips From Mimi Wilson

Two weekends ago I had the privilege of meeting Mimi Wilson, who has written a book entitled
Once A Month Cooking. She spoke briefly on OAMC and I also spoke with her after the seminar. I took notes on everything she shared, and I have some tidbits of wisdom from her to pass on to y'all!
  • Freeze food in zip lock bags and lay completely flat. You can stack a tremendous amount of food this way. She recommended this method especially for those with only the small freezer over a fridge.
  • Organize your freezer into different sections for easy reference of what is frozen in there.
  • Label your food with how many it will feed and what to serve it with.
  • For special occasions (Thanksgiving, etc.) prepare as much ahead of time and freeze.
And the number one tip she shared with me when asked what the most important thing is when it comes to freezing your meals is;
  • Make sure to properly seal the food before putting it in the freezer!

Jessica I loved your freezer series! If only I could get myself organised enough to do a lot of batch cooking. I do make soup and freeze that in batches but most other things I don't bother with.

You've inspired me though!

I loved your freezer series too! In fact, you inspired me to finally go out and buy the freezer we have been eyeing for years. Thx.
