Those of you following Blossom on Facebook will have seen that I recently invested in a chest freezer (despite the fact that many would think this was a crazy idea in my tiny, but well-used, little kitchen).
We have been talking about getting a big freezer for years, dreaming of preserving some of our favourite summer farmer's market treats for year-round enjoyment. This year, the deciding factor was that Little Woods is coming, and its important to me that we are able to keep our healthy, homecooked, whole foods based diet going even if things get a little crazy around here! So... I have spent the last week buying up huge amounts of fresh food, cooking up a storm, and hubby and I even went blackberry picking (a little late in the season)! Surely this is a nutritionist's way of nesting!!!
Below are some of the basic, but lovely recipes which have filled our freezer to the brim. Whether you have a newborn at home, or struggle to get dinner on the table after a long day at work - these meals can be a lifesaver. The secret here is to cook up a massive amount of each to really get the most out of your time investment. Then freeze in dinner sized portions (I made some lunches too), and viola!
