How often do you find yourself scrambling to put together dinner? Are you tired of relying on pizza or grocery store rotisserie chickens to bail you out when there’s nothing thawed in the fridge?

A few years ago, I was lucky enough to latch onto a group of women interested in transforming their families’ dinner time experience. Once a month, we’d spend 3-4 hours preparing 10-12 delicious freezer meals in our individual homes. Then, we’d meet at a designated location and exchange our meals with each other in a 15-20 minute “meal swap.” 

I’d drive home a cooler filled with entrees and side dishes, all prepped and ready to hang out in my freezer until I thawed it for dinner. We enjoyed meals like dijon pork loin with Israeli couscous, Monster Meatballs, Chicken Enchiladas with salsa rojo, chicken fajitas with all of fixings, Million Dollar Spaghetti and so much more!

Not only did our family enjoy great dinners without the epic mom-meltdown, but our meal swap group also discovered how our meals would make a difference. 

In this Part 2 episode with Laura Bell and Alison Frye, we’ll share more stories about our meal swap experience and how we used meal swap to bless our neighbors, friends, people at church and even families overseas.
