Freezer Cooking 101 : March

One of the best things about freezer cooking is that you only have to prep and clean up once!  All of that chopping, crying over onions, and washing preparation dishes only needs to be done during one session.  This helps to reduce clean-up time each night after dinner...in our house, that makes the kid-dishwasher extra happy!
