Freezer Meals

January 5th, 2012 at 07:44 pm

Had the first of the freezer meals I made over Christmas break for dinner tonight.

I used my Dream Dinners cookbook to make 4 meals that I froze in heavy duty gallon bags.

I've been in a rut lately making the same old meals and we are all getting rather tired of them!

I thawed in the fridge for 2 days and popped it in the casserole dish and covered it with foil. Gave DD2 instructions for heating it up. Have to say it was pretty darn good.

Tonight's entree was lemon pasta chicken...I have actually made this before and just cooked for that night rather than freezing.

I have 3 more meals in the freezer:

Kahlua Baked Beans (with ground beef)
Mustard Chicken
Black Bean and Rice salad

It was awesome to come home to a hot cooked meal since I had to work late today.

I plan to make more soon.....it's especially great on nights DD2 has early soccer practice.

Thanks to having that meal tonight....no eating out!

    I've heard of people putting aluminum foil on the bottom of their baking dish, and then making their casserole so that they can take the casserole out and use it for something else/and/or to save freezer space. Is this kind of what you did?

    I'd be really curious about how that would work. (would like to try myself)

    I haven't done much freezer cooking in awhile but I used to do it often. It really is a time and money saver. Frugaltexan, that's how I did it and it worked very well.

    I just put the assembled meals into a heavy duty gallon sized plastic bag and labeled it with the date and what is was. I have heard this was the way to do it to save freezer space. That way they just lay flat in your freezer and take less space.

    I was also considering getting some foil "dishes" from the dollar store with lids....wonder how those would work? It probably wouldn't be a space saver though.

    Anyone ever try that?
