Menu Monday-Batch cooking

Batch cooking is a great way to have meals ready either in your fridge or freezer.  Having meals at your finger tips helps prevent those impulsive trips through the drive thru.  This is also super helpful when things are really warm and you don't want to heat up your kitchen every night of the week.  Batch cooking is one of the ways that I can survive as a working mom with a husband who does shift work.  It's so much easier to get a home cooked meal on the table when a lot of the prep work has already been done.
