Some tips...

I am not a OAMC fan...but I have some ideas on saving time and having "ready" made meals...by prepping as you freeze...Some ideas...are making meatloafs and freeze them all mixed up in a pan lined with saran then pop out of pan and into freezer bag after they are frozen (to prepare I would bake them frozen and bake at lower temps for longer time)...or seasoning your steaks and pork chops with all the seasonings as you put them in the freezer bags, then they will marinate as they defrost. Or there are all types of sticky chicken ideas where you freeze your chicken in bbq sauce or sweet and sour sauce or honeymustard sauce and then pop into a crock pot to cook...How about soups?? Mix up your soup and freeze and then you could just pop it into a crockpot...I think the ideas here could be endless and great time savers during dinner preparation and also menu planning too..
