Cooking Freezable School Snacks for a Whole School Term?
Yes! We here at Stay at Home Mum are mad about freezer cooking – after all – we wrote the book on Freezer Cooking! With parents being busier than ever, it just makes sense to do batch cooking in advance. School lunches will take only seconds to put together – think of the time that will save you every morning! Okay, let’s do it!
What You Will Need to Make 12 Weeks of Freezable School Snacks:
Okay first of all you will need a few freezing supplies – as well as a bit of room in your freezer.
- Zip lock bags.
- Plastic Wrap
- Baking Paper
- A black pen to label the bags
- Various baking tins
- An afternoon of free time
- AND a playlist of your favourite tunes so you can bake and groove at the same time.
