Freezer makes it easy to plan ahead
"...A particularly clever bit is the section of freezer labels with cooking instructions to copy onto labels or on plain paper to tape to the freezer bags. No looking back to the cookbook! That makes it very simple for someone else to complete the dish.
There are all sorts of applications for these meals: Take them when you go to the mountains or the coast for the weekend; take them to someone who is unable to cook for themselves; take some as a gift for new parents. Stock a freezer for a college student. Prepare for a party."...[more]
