Freezer Meals

img_1803.jpgI got crazy yesterday and made 17 Freezer meals!  Summer is coming, and I want to spend less time in the kitchen.  So, I attempted one weeks worth of freezer meals  and my pile just kept growing and growing.  What I love about this idea is without worrying about a meal, I can spend more time preparing salads and vegetables to eat with the meal.  My dinners averaged about $5 per dinner, a little less for some.

I probably won’t want to do all the meals in one day again. So my plan is to eat 3 or 4 of them a week.  Then one or two days a week I’m going to make a double dinner and freeze the other pan for later.  Then I can keep replenishing the freezer supply.   And then 1 day a week I am reserving as beans and rice night.  I really want to start cooking with beans for the cost and the health of it.  Plus we have 50 pounds of dried pinto beans for our food storage.  I need to start cooking with them.  So if you have any good bean recipes, please post.

Here are the meals I made:

  • 3 lasagnas
  • 2 Beef and Broccoli
  • 2 Taco Soup
  • 1 sloppy joe
  • 2 Sweet Pork for burritos
  • 1 bag plain chicken
  • 24 Chicken Pillows
  • 1 Bag Hawaiian Chicken
  • 2 Pans Spinach and chicken Manicotti
  • 1 Chicken pot Pie (just the filling because my pie crust did not hold together.)
