    Earlier this month I invited 3 of my closest friends and fellow moms over for a fun little meal prep planning party.

    Hosted in partnership with one of my longest and dearest clients, Milk Means More, the purpose of the gathering was simple: cook and prep family-friendly meals to stock our freezers!

    In total, we prepared four meals for each family of 4-5 people including my Mexican Lasagna with Chicken and Black BeansBaked Penne with Sausage and RicottaChicken and Mushroom Casserole with Crispy Panko Topping and a new recipe I’m sharing today: Chicken and Artichoke Greek Farro Bake.

    Spoiler Alert: Cooking with friends is way more fun than cooking with hungry toddlers staring you down. But you probably knew that already.

    Not only is cooking with friends more fun, it’s way more efficient! We each had our own cooking stations and divided up sections of each recipe so that we could finish all of the meals before we had to leave and pick up our kids from school.

    If you’ve ever considered doing this type of event with neighbors, coworkers, friends or family, I highly recommend it! It was a ton of fun and we all went home with dinner prepped for FOUR nights! Boom.

    1. So does this freeze well then? I’m assuming so since you did it in a meal prep? Anything I should change when doing so? We meal prep a lot.

    2. I’ve made this recipe at least 3 times. I love it! And my guests always love it too!
      I’m planning on doing it again soon and so I was checking the ingredients and it’s the first time I’m reading the story above about the meal prep party. I love the idea!!! Would you mind sharing a bit more details about how you organised this? Did you actually all bake the recipes or only prepped the dishes for each one to bake at home (I assume so)? Did you do all the prep first (like chopping, …) for all recipes and then prepare each one after the other? Or did you take each recipe from scratch, one after the other? Did you split the costs with your friends? How many hours did you need for these 4 recipes? Do you think you managed to get 4 recipes done because you were a group of 4 (and so a group of 3 could only tackle 3 ?). So many questions!!! Thanks from a French fan :-)

    3. I used to make a dish similar to this but with orzo, and it was a family favorite. I completely forgot about it and you’ve reminded me how much we love this combination of flavors! Anything with feta is for me – can’t wait to try your version.
