  1. I'm guessing after awhile that you get used to the texture of frozen, but I'm not sure I could adapt to frozen peppers and onions. I had a bountiful year in the garden for peppers and so I sliced some, diced others, and frozen them in amounts I commonly use for meals. They went into vacuum sealed bags, so freezer burn wasn't the issue. Our family is just so used to fresh that cooking with the frozen ruined many meals. In warming up the peppers, they released so much of their liquid into the meal that it would make quesadillas soggy, or casseroles watery. Am I missing something? Those first 2 meals aren't so time consuming that you couldn't whip them up at dinner time. I don't see the advantage of prepping in advance when it loses that crisp tender texture you get when cooking fresh veggies. There are some things that I do prep extra for the freezer… meatloaves (cause who wants to put their hands in meat, egg, and breadcrumbs more than they have to, right?), and things like pulled pork or beef carnitas, where the roast is big enough for multiple meals so it makes sense to divide it up after cooking. Maybe I'm just a stage in my life where carving out 45 minutes to make dinner isn't a big deal 🤷‍♀ I have found the older I get, the more I want to make from scratch than buying it from the store. Grow tomatoes and make my own sauce, ketchup, and BBQ. Make my own mayo from eggs from our chickens. Homemade breadcrumbs from bread I baked with fresh whole wheat flour I made by grinding wheat berries. If I had a word for this year, it would probably be Eliminate… eliminate preservatives, fillers, pesticides, herbicides, anti-caking agents, GMO ingredients, endocrine disruptors, artificial flavors, and flavor enhancers. But then again, I'm dealing with health issues that have made me look harder at what we're eating and go down the (very deep) rabbit hole of our diseased food industry. Sorry that got so heavy, but that's where my 2023 kicked off. I would love to have some nights where the "convenience" food I grab is from my prior efforts, but I think I need to do it my own way. I still appreciate your sweet personalities and enthusiasm, and sometimes I even find a recipe that I can make work for me. Keep up the great videos!

  2. I just found your channel yesterday . I just love you ladies. I wish we had these videos when I was young and had my children at home . I would have loved preparing meals like this .
    Although , I must say I made different soups for a week this fall . I have those frozen so that I don't have to eat the same things all week .
    Happy New Year !

  3. For the kids that won't eat vegetables- Amy Miron and I decided to puree some vegetables and then freeze them in an ice cube tray. Then when you make Macaroni and Cheese, or anything with a sauce add a cube or two. Get them used to the flavours then later they may well get over those texture issues. Maybe even start with small cut veggies. You can do anything because it's the New Year and you are a Goddess!

  4. I have the Hearty Hamburger Soup in the freezer now. That is on this months menu plan. We love it! I enjoy the Freezer Meals 101 Club even though I cook for two. I can make one recipe and split it up into 3 or 4 meals. If I get a meat on sale, I get into the Club and look for recipes. Thank you so much!

  5. Happy New Year ladies! I can’t wait to see what up for this year on your channel💕 I paid for my membership in September right away just by not ordering/picking up take-out. It is absolutely worth it, and it’s self care to me; Im not stressed about cooking every night, or feeling guilty for eating out or wasting food.

  6. You are helping me with many resolutions!! I used the nutrition facts in the club to plan 90 dinners/lunches for my family. So I’m getting more fiber/ protein into my family and less fat as well as saving me money and time! I have older kids, but our dinner times have lots of chaos with kids in college and working. My youngest and only daughter has health issues and her nutrition has a large impact on her overall health, where my four sons just want fed. Lol. Thank you as always for inspiration and entertainment!!!
