Yesterday, I spent 1 1/2 hours in a prep kitchen preparing my family meals. I prepared six servings of the following dishes and this will feed my family until the first week in October! Using the prep kitchen and freezing my meals makes it easier for me to work my crazy hours and still come home and cook (which I love to do). This way we eat healthier and spend less money on take-out.
