More Freezer Cooking

I did two more freezer meals today making a total of 11 meals + the twice baked potatoes ready to pull out on a busy day or one of those days when I just don't feel like cooking. I've found several great blogs that have some really great tips on make-ahead cooking and lots of recipes that I want to try.
