As part of my family’s goal to eat healthier and not order meals, I am making freezer bag meals. I prepared several meals for my husband and kids to have while I am traveling. My husband loves beef stew, so I put together two bags of freezer bag beef stew (and I am hoping that he saves one of them for us to have together when I get back).
