Freezer Meal Swap

If you want to save money and are getting tired of the same old dinners at your house you should try to have a meal swap!! A few friends and I started having one back in October and it's been so nice to have some different meals for supper. We started out with 4 people and we now how 7 people that are going to participate this month. Here are the rules we follow:
  1. Each Person makes one meal for each member. (For example: I am making Chicken Tetrazini this month, so I will make 7 different batches of Chicken Tetrazinni. Since we all have smaller families, we only make each meal to feed 3-4 people)
  2. We then meet up once a month and swap all the meals. You will need up going home with 7 different meals (including the one you made).
  3. This month we are trying to spend under $25 per person for all ingredients. (25/7 meals == $3.57 per meal)

This has worked out great for our family, because it gives me more time at night to spend with my family and you also don't have to worry about whats for dinner every night. You just thaw the meal the night before and then you have a home cooked meal for dinner!

If you're in the Northport area and you're interested in joining our swap let me know. We would love to have more people. Or you could always start a swap of your own.
