Saving Dinner

What do you know about that?!? While searching the internet looking for “freezer cooking meals”, “once a month cooking”, and “freezer assests”, I remembered purchasing the Saving Dinner Freezer Mega Menu-Mailer from SavingDinner.Com! This was before Leanne Ely changed how her site looked and worked. For those of my readers that are FlyBabies, they know exactly who Leanne Ely, Saving Dinner, and Menu-Mailers are!

I love that the versions of stuff I have spell out exactly what I will need to buy, how to prepare, and exactly how to cook and in what order. I need the guess work taken out of this process for me.

Printing out the pages of the Menu-Mailers that I need. Going to plan the menu and the shopping lists from there.

I did find some great printables for Menu Planning and Freezer Inventory at ListPlanIt.Com (affiliate link used – which means if you join, I make a small amount of $$)

Next up… actually writing out the menu plan and the shopping lists!

Planning Ahead

I’m not usually an organized person. I’m one of those people that flies by the seat of my pants chronically.

I am having rotator cuff surgery on September 21.

Everything indicates that I will be down for the count for a minimum of 2 weeks. I have a very long list of things I need to get lined up.

Trying to get childcare lined up for the day of surgery. This is proving a little trickier than I thought it would be. I’ve got a little time to get it figured out.

Now, the big task… menu planning for the 2-4 weeks post-op that I won’t be doing much of anything. I’m hoping to find some great freezer cooking resources and freezer crock pot menus.

I hope to post here about my progress in planning ahead and during my recovery. If my blog becomes super quiet after September 21, you’ll know that I am just not up to posting.
