The concept of creating a month’s worth of meals in one weekend is known by several different names, such as “freezer cooking,” “bulk cooking” and “once a month cooking”. There is no doubt about it that this method of cooking requires a lot of planning and a lot of work, but if you have the time and energy to devote one weekend to cooking each month, you can feed your family for an entire month.
I however do not always have 2 full days to spend cooking and cleaning. I do take a couple of hours and cook the meals up for that week or a few extra days. Some months I can schedule in getting that full month cooked ahead and I love it. But any way I can fit it in, I love the ease of planning ahead.
Imagine how stress-free the next few weeks will be, when you’ll no longer have to worry about what to serve for dinner. You’ll be able to serve your family a great tasting, home-cooked meal each night, and the best part is that the meal has already been made. All you’ll need to do is pop it into the oven.
As you can imagine, bulk cooking calls for bulk shopping. If you have ever been to a warehouse store, you know how much money you can save by buying in bulk. In the past, buying food in such large quantities may have been daunting. You may have wondered if you were ever going to use all that food before it went bad. With freezer cooking, you can shop without worry; when you get home, you are going to assemble all those meals and freeze them. The food simply won’t have a chance to go bad!
Freezer cooking allows you to avoid the “dinner rush” for an entire month. Before you go to bed each night, you simply open the freezer and pull out tomorrow’s dinner. When you get home, it will be in the refrigerator, waiting for you to pop it into the oven. You are free to spend time with your family and enjoy your evening.
Never worry about what's for dinner again. I've got you covered with the meal plans in the Once a Week Cooking Club. Cook once, eat all week.
