Hi there, I'm an avid freezer mealer. My friend and I get together for a day and make several meals to freeze. I'm curious how does your group work? From what I gather, you each take several recipes, make and freeze, and then share with the rest? I'd love to know the particulars!

Hi there-

Yes, we meet once a month and exchange the meals that we prepare and plan our meals for the next month. There are in our group, we each make 3 meals. So we end up with 18 meals for the month. Some meals we split in two, for those families with smaller children to avoid leftovers. A great example is the spaghetti pie, it can be prepared in 2 8x8s or 1 9x13 pan. So some families end up with more meals than others. We have a budget of $150 each month, we then report our total spent and come up with the average, if you under spent, you pay some who may have over spent so everyone pays the same amount for thier 18 meals.

Hope that helps! Email me at if you have any other questions-
