Freezer Meal Group - October 2010

I need to catch up on the freezer meals I have made. I always put a label on them that they can find the recipe on the blog so it is a bit rude of me to not keep on top of that.

Again, I apologize for the lack of posting. I was doing better then the headaches in addition to family obligations put the kibosh on that. Hopefully, I can get back on track and the three freezer meal posts will be a good start.

This freezer meal was a big hit both at home and elsewhere--at the November exchange I received rave reviews from a couple other swap members.
