freezer meals 101-IDEAS?
Background: Our family will have a big change come Jan. 2--my dh will be working full-time during the day (he's been a SAHD and goes to school full-time--online). I WOHM (teacher), so dh has been such a great help since our LO was born 12/06. He'll be substitute teaching (yeah, foot in the door), so our hours will be the same (one car family so we'll all be leaving and coming home together).
One area that will change is dinner. I want to do as many meals ahead of time, or the bulk of the meal.
I have a crock pot, but I don't want to leave it on when we aren't here. I'd like to save for one with a timer.
I'm not the greatest homemaker (although I strive to be). I don't even know where to start with what I can freeze together. Can raw meat and veggies be combined together and then cooked together?
