We saw this idea in action when Angie at Blonde Designs blogged about it and just how well it was working for her. The idea is so simple. A group of six (or more) people decide on a certain amount of meals for a six-week period. Angie's group does 12 meals. Then each person prepares two of the meals, and freezes enough for all six people in the group. (It's obviously a lot easier to prepare and freeze a lot of one or two recipes, rather than 12 recipes!)
Then they distribute the frozen meals among themselves, and everyone has a frozen yet homemade meal for their family twice a week.
We think this is a brilliant way to share cooking skills and get organized for the month. It's also very community-oriented, which is great. It's like a home-cooked answer to those meal prep centers which have been popping up across the country in the last few years.
Have you ever done something like this?
