I like to cook from scratch. That way I know what I'm eating. I also like to use my pressure canner to can meats and make homemade soups. It's a great way to have ready made meals while traveling in the camper, especially during hunting season. No fuss, No muss
I used to use the freezer and make homemade mixes a lot. Now the empty nest causes a lot of eating out. Because of weight gain, I've got to go back to healthy, home-cooked meals again!
We Can Learn To Cook & Face Any Problems While Making Food

We bulk cook, then freeze it mostly when we buy too much of something (There's only the two of us and we shop at Costco... you know what that means...)
I used to, but I got married and my wife doesn't like anything resembling a leftover.
I try to always double my meals and bulk cook every couple of weeks.
A friend and I do quarterly cooking together ... It's great!!
On a tight food budger, bulk buying and cooking is the only way to go. I'm so thankful for my freezer and Seal-A-Meal! Not to mention the food processor, etc.
I am single. It is cheaper and easier to take a recipe that serves 4, eat it one night and freeze the rest in single servings for a later time. I don't do the once a month cooking. Just extra cooking on days off. This way I do not have to cook every night.
It also saves money by allowing me to buy in season produce and items that are on sale.
Love the leftovers! Saves time by cooking enough for two or three meals.
it would be nice if you could come up with a Freezer Meals
Recipe book :)
With a large busy family and trying to keep within a budget, bulk cooking helps!
I cook chili in bulk during the winter months and sometimes a roast with vegatables or saur kraut with a pork roast. We eat it one night and freeze the rest for another night, since there is only my husband and I. Our nest is empty now except on special occasions the whole family shows up right now that is 13 people so bulk is the only way.
thanks....appreciate your efforts...
