4 Weeks to Fill Your Freezer Challenge Week 1- Breakfast

Sharing is caring!

Welcome to Week 1 of my 4 Weeks to Fill Your Freezer Challenge! Through the month of November I’m challenging us to fill our freezer with all sorts of meals to help get us through the busy Christmas season in December. Wouldn’t it be great to not have to worry about cooking as much?

Each week will be a different theme: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Desserts/Snacks. That way you’ll have a well-rounded freezer full of delicious food! I’m seriously so excited about this because my December is always jam-packed with activities.

Here’s what you should expect from me for the next four weeks:

Guidelines For 4 Weeks to Fill Your Freezer Challenge

1.) Every Sunday for the next 4 weeks, I’ll post a list of the 5 meals I’ll make that week. I’ll also include a free printable grocery list.

2.) I’ll publish 5 recipes every week of what I’m making, for a total of 20 recipes. They’re all pretty easy and a lot of them require the same ingredients, so that’ll help cut down on costs.

What You Can Do to Participate

1.) Print out the grocery list every week and check the blog Monday through Friday for the recipes. This post will be updated with the recipe links, too.

2.) Make your own recipes instead. I know a lot of you have different dietary needs and may need something different, but I’d still love for you to participate! You can also substitute ingredients as needed.

3.) Share this post with your friends! If you know anyone who would benefit from having a full freezer, don’t hesitate to let them know about this challenge.

4.) Make sure to keep track of what’s in your freezer as you fill it. I’ve created a FREE Freezer Inventory Sheet for you to download and stick on your fridge:

How long can these meals last in the freezer? Getting ready for baby #1 and I want to make a bunch of freezer meals to get us through the first few weeks :)

Hi Kelley, congratulations!!!

In general, most freezer meals will stay fresh up to 3 months. Not that they go "bad" after that, but you just risk freezer burn. =) But that should be plenty of time to enjoy your new baby/enjoy freezer meals without having to cook!

Awesome! Yeah, we're typically non-vegan, but I think some of these can be modified that way! =)
