Freezer Meals

February 26, 2012

I love to plan ahead and have meals ready to go in the freezer.  On a busy day, having a great meal already prepared, just makes me happy.  If you are already making a mess in the kitchen, make twice or three times as much, put it in a freezer bag and – Voila!  Dinner is ready for another night!

As you can see from the picture below, I freeze meals as flat as I can.  This makes it easy to store in the freezer and takes up less space.  After filling the freezer bag, I lay them flat on a cookie sheet or in a 9×13 casserole pan and put them in my larger freezer until they are frozen solid and then “file” them in my indoor freezer.  This picture is one side of my “chest” style freezer that is below my frig.

In that little space I have 5 meals of Spaghetti sauce, 5 meals of Skinny Chimichanga meat, 3 meals of Chicken with Mushroom Sauce (sauce only), and 2 meals of Ranchers Chili.  15 meals at my fingertips.  Love it!  And more meals could fit in on the sides.  I better get cooking! Make sure you write on the bag with a Sharpie marker before filling the bag.
