Tips for preparing:
-If you want to prepare a few freezer meals at a time, print the recipes and make a comprehensive list so you don’t forget anything.
-Make notes on anything you did differently than the recipe indicates. That way if you will remember the next time you make it
-Be sure to grab freezer bags and write the name of the dish, date, and any other instructions before filling it.
-Running luke warm water on the outside of the plastic bag will make it easier to get the frozen contents out of the bag and into your cooking source.
-In general cook frozen meals on high for 5 to 6 hours or on low for 7 to 8.
