Wouldn't it be nice to have someone do the laundry and cook a few meals when us busy moms get even busier?
I haven't been cooking much lately, but I have been able to put some yummy meals on the table thanks to a local shop called Prep Freeze Cook. This gem of a store lets you purchase pre-made, frozen meals that you can pop in the oven or the crockpot whenever you need them.
When my boys were little and I was working full-time in Cincinnati, I frequented a similar outlet called Dream Dinners.
The beauty of these meal preparation shops is that you can add your own special touch to each entree. And when you find a dish the whole family loves, you've got a new recipe to add to your rotation.
I love the chance to try out new meals that I might not normally make at home. It's a great way to get my brain working on new recipes to test in my own kitchen.
So I thought I'd share a few of the Prep Freeze Cook meals my family likes.
Do you frequent a meal assistant shop or use one of the many online offerings? I'd love to learn about some of your favorites, too.
Zuppa Toscana: This Italian soup features sausage and beans for a hearty, flavorful meal. Pair it with some crusty bread and dinner is served.
Taco Casserole: This is almost like a zesty, thick chili. We added shredded cheddar cheese and sliced green onions on top.
Chicken Chili: This white chili is so delicious. All we added was some fresh ground black pepper and cilantro.
Sweet & Sour Meatballs: These tangy meatballs were a big hit with my boys, one of whom choose to stuff them into a hot dog bun instead of eating them over rice.
