In anticipation of the birth of our sixth (!) child in about 6 1/2 (!) weeks, give or take 2 weeks, I am desperately trying to get some meals prepared and in the freezer so that the first couple of weeks will be a little easier. I’m going through my recipes to find appropriate additions to the list, and I have a few favorite websites for recipes as well. My general requirements for a freezer recipe:
- It has to be relatively inexpensive.
- It has to be liked by the majority of our family members.
- It has to be easy to store and prepare from the frozen state.
- It has to be borderline healthy, although I’ll let this one slide for some really good freezer snacks.
Some of my favorite recipe sites are 30 Day Gourmet, Heavenly Homemakers, and this list of great recipes. I also like to use recipes I find in other blogs. I haven’t really gone wrong with those yet. My current favorite blog for recipes, especially baking is Pleasant View Schoolhouse. She makes wonderful things. Someday I’d like to meet her.
I really need to stop finding new recipes and just start compiling a good list of what I want to cook so I can get those ingredients and start cooking!
