Dinner time is a struggle. Whether you have a houseful of kids or just you and your spouse dinner time becomes redundant and most often times something that we just run out of time to even think about. How many of you guys honestly think about dinner every single morning in hopes that your start of the day preparations will make dinner come off without a hitch? Not me because sometimes it is an act of congress to make that possible.

My favorite thing about this months freezer meal plan is that we worked in lots of fresh veggies. So not only is it a healthy take on dinner time but also great for the produce you will find right now at your grocery store.
Here are products mentioned for this prep:
Collapsible Colander – This is perfect for draining pasta in the sink without all of the yucky water touching your noodles.
Thaw Board – Thaw meat in no time with this thing. <–MY KITCHEN FAVORITE!
Freezer Bag Holders – Lifesavers when it comes to assembly, making sauces, marinades or whatever!
Produce Saver – Keeps all your favorite veggies and fruits fresh in the refrigerator by removing moisture.
Each month we create a new menu. You can find all of those here. You don’t have to make the meal options for that particular month you can view the recipes prior to purchasing and choose whether or not that meal plan works for you. Make March meals in July. Make January meals in May. Whatever you choose, there is no judgement here. You can also double the recipes to make 14 instead of 7 or divide them if you have a smaller family. It is whatever works for you! We just want to help get dinner on the table!
