need to label everything in the freezer
One mistake that
many new-to-freezer-cooking make is to not label every single
dish and entree that goes into the freezer. Sure, you think
you won't forget what that read looking dishes in the freezer,
but trust me, you will.
The problem with
freezing meals is that many of them start to look the same.
Is that spaghetti sauce, chili, marinara sauce or some other
unidentified meal? the last thing you want to do is defrost
a spaghetti sauce with mushrooms when you meant to defrost
the mushroom-free chili for your son's friend who happens
to be allergic to mushrooms.
And as you began
to expand your freezer cooking horizons and began to freeze
desserts and side dishes, you can easily end up defrosting
a dessert instead of a similarly-looking casserole.
You should make
it a habit to always label any thing that you put in your
freezer. that way it will be a routine and you will not have
to worry about any potential mixups in the future because
everything looks the same once it's frozen.
