Happy October everyone! This week’s meal plan features freezer meals from Wildtree, the kid’s favorite dinner and prep for our friend’s annual pumpkin carving party. The freezer meal has become a life saver as I have a lot less time to cook with three kids four and under. The baby is always hungry as I’m prepping dinner so having the majority of dinner prepared is a huge help.

I generally make my freezer meals at the Wildtree workshops friends are hosting. If you want to do it on your own, these are two resources I would recommend.

Neat-os Reusable Bag Set (chop onions and peppers and store in these reusable bags) Don’t miss their cute snack size bags too. Kids can decorate their own and use them in their lunch box.

The hard part about freezer meals is always going to be finding some time to prep the meals. If you can, set aside a half hour and just start with two meals your family would like. I bet it will be so helpful on some busy weeknight, it will motivate you to try to make more.
