Cooking Among Friends: Meal Planning and Preparation Delightfully Simplified
presents yet another approach to freezer cooking, this time suggesting assembling a group of friends who will each cook in bulk and then get together to exchange meals in the group. I thought the recipes in this book sounded good – especially if you don’t like to do just casserole type meals all the time.

The drawback I could see to this method is that it seems like there is no real way to make it financially equal. The book presents various ideas for how to divvy up costs, but none of them really make sense if you’re a bargain shopper, unless everyone else in your group is too. I like Monica’s idea about everyone bringing their own meat etc a lot better in that respect.

Still, if you’re interested in the whole freezer cooking party scenario, you might find some good ideas in this book.
