Best meals for freezing

Freezer meals are so nice to have on hand for when you have a busy week ahead! Prep them on a weekend when you don’t have plans and you’ll be set for busy days where dinner seems impossible.

Making a freezer meal is also a great way to serve a new mom or someone in need. I’ve realized sometimes people have a hard time accepting help (me included), so it’s an easy thing to drop by and they can use whenever it’s needed.

I absolutely LOVE these printable freezer meal labels! They are so easy to print out and stick on top of a zip top freezer bag. That way you can easily remember cooking instructions and the date you made the recipe. HERE are the labels that work best.
