100daysmealI saw this idea in a magazine this last year and the idea fascinated me.  I think it would be hard to do if your family has a special diet, like ours does. But if not it could be a good way to free up some time on your part, not have to cook so much and save some money.

Basically how it works is you gather a group of friends or neighbors (maybe 3)  and each of you will cook 1-2 meal for the week.  But instead of simply cooking for your family you also will cook for their families, too.

The package up the meals and  the exchange them with your friends (if you can freeze the meal a perfect place to drop off could be Sunday at Church (if you go), or another place that you meet weekly.

By doing this you could not have to cook more than 1-2 days a week and have a home cooked meal everyday.

A good way to organize would be to start a Facebook group for the meal share and you could put down your meals for the weekly menu so they will not be any overlap.

Here is another great article that lays out all the details and ways you could structure a group like this!
