It takes a couple of times to get in the swing of doing larger sessions. I
know the first time I did a big session it ended up taking 3 days instead of
one! And I was so disheartened, but I so enjoyed having food in the freezer
that I kept on. Each time you try it, learn a bit more and smooth it out so
that after awhile, it is almost second nature. Keep the faith, it WILL get
easier with experience.
But if you are too overwhelmed doing bigger sessions, then just do smaller
ones! Instead of making several different recipes, just make shepherds pie
for dinner, but make 3 - one for dinner and two for the freezer. Or if it is
a simpler meal, make even more - like 5 pounds of taco meat, or 12 mini
meatloaves. I mean, if you're making the mess in first place, you may as
well make it a little bigger and fill the freezer while you are at it! If
you do that about once a week or so when you make a big dinner, you will
find that your freezer fills up quite fast.
