07 Jul Freezer Meals Are a Great Luxury
Has your freezer been just a part of your refrigerator that you store a few pieces of cut meat or some ice-cream in? If yes, then it is time to take a re-look and discover this multi-faceted versatile space that can prove to be a boon. A blessing that makes life easier, living within budgets possible and all this without fretting and fuming.
The freezer space is your answer to not only cutting costs but also enjoying your favorites all year round. You no longer have to worry about the season and what is available when. Make the most of this part of your refrigerator and you will find that life has become so much more easier, colorful and convenient.
Shop during the season and store your favorite fruits and vegetables for when you would miss them the most. When your friends are unable to make their favorite pie or dessert because the fruit is no longer in season, you can still enjoy a slice of that mouthwatering dessert and yes, treat your friend too. This way you save a lot too. Don’t have to pay huge sums to get stuff that is not in season.
The second and most important use the freezer can be put to is for storing delicious ready to eat freezer meals. Cooking in advance and freezing it for when you don’t feel up to some extensive cooking can be a great idea. Not having to spend the whole day in the kitchen after a long day at work is surely a big relief and so I always have atleast a few packs that I can thaw and enjoy. However, if you have not planned in advance this is just not possible.
A little planning is all you need to have a great spread without having to cook. You can freeze food safely and without losing out on the taste element anywhere from 3 to 6 months. When you get a little free time make the most of it, cook a number of your favorite dishes and just freeze them. You can thus, keep enjoying the fruits of labor for a long long time. A little bit of work on a free day and you will forever, have a freezer full of goodies. You will have enough to even entertain unannounced guests without any difficulty.
I prefer to plan my week well in advance and make all the required preparations. Chopping vegetables, making some of the sauces and marinating meat are some steps that would make cooking simpler and fun. You can also do a number of dishes that can be taken out thawed and straight served. I make it a point to label each of the dishes properly so that it is not a treasure hunt situation every time I need something. There are some really nice and delicious freezer meals recipes that you would love.
