Gone grocery shopping!
The first week of September is almost over, can you believe it ? Time flies! I am not sure about you, but if you are anyone like me then you will do your grocery shopping fortnightly. If you are into home cooked meals that would be just about right, to bring in veggies and fruits to last two weeks before they perish or begin to rot.
What about Freezer Meals ?
We will talk about freezer meals as the days get shorter and the winter weather approaches.Yes, you got me, I don’t love stepping out to shop for groceries in the snow either. It is not one of my favorite sport. My mind kicks into creative mode during winter time, to store & save as many meal preps I possibly can, just to avoid sliding through the snow, grocery bag in hand on all fours. You get the picture ?
