I know this is not exactly about appliances but here is a neat idea for cooking once a month and freezing everything. Cook food for a month, package it up in individual meal packs, then freeze it all. Come home from work, pull your meal out of the freezer – nuke it, or warm it in the oven and eat. Sounds like a good idea.
“Once-a-month cooking sounds intriguing, but how many times have you read articles, or purchased a book on the subject, without ever actually getting around to organizing a cooking session? Do you want to make freezer cooking work for your family but feel overwhelmed with making dinner for tonight in-between soccer practice, diaper changes and housework? Read on to find out how you can stock your family freezer in a week the easy way.”
Of course, you need a good (empty) chest freezer for this meal plan.
