I was pleasantly surprised with how the Jumbalia turned out. I didn’t think the rice would be okay to freeze, as it turned out it was perfect. It seems like I can never follow a recipe exactly as written. We have allergies here so there are always substitutions. This meal had been in the freezer for two weeks We didnt’ have to add anything all we had to do is drop it in the slow cooker.
We are keeping a list of our wins and failures. All of them seem to work, some we just would make again because of texture or flavors we didn’t enjoy.
This method is certainly helping us eat a variety and not the same old thing every day. We have not quite figured out the balance of how many meals should be in the freezer and how many should be done the day of. It’s clear to us that we need both.
We got a thank you from our neighbor yesterday. She said she has enjoyed them and she would like to buy some ingredients if we are going to continue to do this for her. I am sure we can work something out. I think it would be fun for her to come put hers together if the prep work was done. We’ll have to see how that goes.
Do you have any great plan ahead and freezer meals you have made?
