  1. Okay, just let me say I love these freezer/cook ahead meals. But…you have really spoiled me by making everything so easy. I wonder if you could add some suggestions for sides to the menus. No recipes…just suggestions. I just want someone to think about mealtime options for sides for me so that I don’t have to. I am so spoiled!

    1. I am glad that we can spoil you so. I would suggest that you ask this same question in our community as many of our readers would love to chime in with answers for you. For me, Cauliflower Blend veggies, corn, green beans, salad, peas, carrots and broccoli are regular sides in our rotation. Quick and easy to throw in the microwave, stove or Instant Pot while dinner is cooking.
