I've made a few of the recipes in the sparkrecipes and have had to freeze what was left over usually my daughter comes over and I end up sending it home with her. Her husband then wants to know the recipe because he always says he liked them. I haven't really cooked for a week yet but may try soon cause I know of some days I don't feel like cooking. I'm really glad I invested in a crock pot it really cuts down my time in the kitchen

Its been great cooking during the weekend for an entire week. Depending on how many times the boys come over for dinner can cut into the length of time it all lasts but it thats ok. I get to spend more time with family and out of the kitchen during the week nights and I know everyone is eating healthier too!

I freeze meals every Sunday. I cook my lunches for the week and I do the same thing like cook a whole chicken and portion it out with a cooked side like this weak I made crust-less spinach and it froze well together in a dish. I have been doing this for months and it is working beautifully. The longest I have ever kept prepared frozen before eating was 6 weeks and it tasted great. I hear not everything keeps that well though so be prepared for freezer fallout LOL. I am prepared but so far so good!

I definitely want to focus on finding big-batch things I can freeze. We have made some turkey-zucchini burgers that froze very well; and I think our tomato sauce would freeze as well -- and since that is a time consuming (but worth it!) recipe, it'd be nice to have extra frozen on the side.
My husband has been doing a lot of hte food prep, and he has come to adore my food processor. He says "if that thing dies, I will be out the door and replacing it before the broken blade stops spinning!" Haha! We have managed without the blender (which broke a few months ago) but wouldn't know what to do without the processor, chopped, and a nice new sharp knife! :)
