My kitchen has not always been my favorite place to be. I have always wished that I liked to cook and bake more than I do. Tonight I got to enjoy the company of friends while we put together freezer meals for each other's freezers.
I have done freezer meals for our family many times and love having things in the freezer to pull out and make things easier on those busy days but I have never done it with others who bring along their own recipes to share.
Each person brought a recipe and the meat for all of the different meals the eight of us were making. Lyn graciously went to Sams and purchased our non-meat ingredients and then totalled up and divided to figure how much it would cost each of us. I was surprised how economical it is. I am pretty sure that this is a money saving activity! Then we all put together our recipe eight times and handed them out to the others. I got to host and I have to say, it was so fun!
As everyone left with eight meals for their freezer I couldn't help but get a little emotional thinking about last summer when I was praying for the opportunity to buy this house. I used to tell God all of the things that we could do to serve Him with this home. We broke in the kitchen in a big way and look forward to doing this again.
