I am really determined to clear out my freezer. I hate food waste and if I don’t use these items up, I will end up throwing them out. Plus, on days where I am working 12-15 hours, it is so nice to come home to a simple meal, that is on the table in record time.
Between preparing for and executing events, I have been exceeding my FitBit step goal – EVERY SINGLE DAY! I decided to celebrate by having a plate of pasta….
I know, I know, but sometimes when a girl is tired and her feet are killing her, she needs pasta! When I make meatballs, I tend to make a very large batch and freeze them. While the meatballs are cooking, I whip up a pot full of homemade sauce. It is a simple matter of filling freezer bags with the meatballs, topping it with sauce and laying it the freezer.
All I need to do is pull a bag out, let it defrost overnight, then boil a pot of water for the pasta. Easy peasy, tasty, homemade, and it totally doesn’t require me to be on my feet for very long. This is exactly the kind of meal I need after five days of events!
