Dinner is arranged: five ready-to-eat meals you’ll thank yourself for

Dinner is arranged: five ready-to-eat meals you’ll thank yourself for

Life seems pretty busy for most of us right now, but in reality we only have one week, or two at best, before the kids finish school, the Christmas travel and countdown begins, and complete madness ensues. Then, hopefully, there will be a period where we can’t do anything at all (or at least, nothing we don’t want to do).

The thing about this whole time is that, whether it’s because we don’t have time or we don’t want to waste time, it’s nice to not have to worry about cooking dinner every night.

So, this week, eat five perfect meals to prepare in advance and freeze for later. I encourage you to double your recipes – have half the day prep them, and stash the other half for later. None of them really take long to make, but you’ll thank yourself in the crazy days leading up to Christmas or the lean days right after when all you have to do is take dinner out of the fridge and reheat it. The fact that they’re all delicious doesn’t hurt — you’ll be happy to eat them again.
