another snow day on the horizon? put the day to great use and stock your freezer with family dinners!


The news is all abuzz with the latest winter storm coming our way, which in our town means one thing: another snow day for the kiddos. Fret? No. Plan ahead? Yes. After a lazy day spent as a family playing lots of "Settlers of Catan", tonight we enjoyed the last container of Mediterranean Beef Stew {pictured above-- "fancy" family dinner in our dining room, which in reality was just the aforementioned Mediterranean Beef Stew from our homemade freezer stash + Seeds of Change brown rice/quinoa blend + arugula salad with my favorite lemon vinaigrette but note to self: it's funny how the manners change when we walk 5 feet from the kitchen table to the dining room table and I light a few candles…anyway, dinner was "made" in the 15 minutes it took to defrost the beef stew}.

With many a ski weekend ahead, and a kind of nutty winter schedule of chauffeuring to tennis lessons, tae kwon do, and robotics team right up until dinnertime, I could use a few more nourishing family meals everyone loves at the ready. So, in anticipation of the next storm/possible snow day, I've whipped out my freezer-friendly recipes and I'll be filling my grocery cart, so if we're holed up Wednesday, at least I can crank Zac Brown up and put the day to good use restocking our freezer stash.

Want to join me? The "Stock Your Freezer in a Snap" program is an instant download, meaning that there's time for you to purchase it, print it, and put this week's snow day to excellent use too! So, what are you waiting for? The 5am call from school? Come on, join us and make the most of a snow day!
