Re: monthly cooking ?

1. buy a new, bigger freezer
2. Stop freezing so much stuff
3. use a food saver (vacuum sealer) so the packages are much smaller than Plasticboxes...

I don't see more choices...

I freeze my chicken marinades (no chicken) in ziplock baggies, so they lay flat, and then have one bag of chicken.
we get our corn and peas from a friend who owns a farm. we spend a day blanching and taking the corn off the cob. the peas are already out of their shell. therefore, they freeze flat in ziplock baggies too.
Past that, you dont have many choices. casseroles are too big.

Re: monthly cooking ?

if your freezer is smaller then a microwave I do not see how you can do monthly meals.
