@Jw1724:  Nicely done!! Would you share your favorite recipes? I don’t have anything to share.. The most I’ve done is pin some freezer meal ideas to my Pinterest board. 🙂  I’ve never gotten around to actually making them!!

@Jw1724:  Whoa, that’s awesome!

My freezer meals are kinda lame. I make a giant batch of marinara and freeze portions in individual tupperware containers so during the week, I can just boil some pasta and be done with dinner in 10 mins. 

And I agree with PP, please share your favorite freezer recipes! I have to start doing this… since school started, I’ve felt so swamped and overworked that my FI and I have been eating nasty fast-food a lot. Yuck. I’d love to get some ideas for freezer meals 😀

ETA: oops! I see you’ve put a link to your fav freezer recipes. Yay!

@Jw1724:  Cool, thanks for the link!! One of my absolute favorite discoveries is this Chicken Taco Chili from skinnytaste.com that you can make in a crockpot. If I doubled the recipe, do you think I could freeze half of it? 

I’m just bad at knowing what would freeze well and what would turn mushy if I cooked it and froze it and thawed it…  Undecided

I don’t have a big enough freezer to do freezer meals. I do just make the recipes I’ve found without freezing them, and they are delicious. But it would be nice to actually freeze some meals for convenience. One of these days.

@Jw1724:  We have a Half fridge. I’m 5’1″ and the firdge is shorter than me. So our freezer is freakishly small. I can barely fit our essentials in there. 🙁 We live in a small studio apartment right now, but hopefully moving in the next year.

@whaleigh:  Aah the dreaded half-fridge! I am taller than our fridge too at the moment and I hate it! I made and froze ONE batch of slow cooker chili (6 individual servings) and the freezer compartment is already jam packed. Dreaming of moving out to the ‘burbs and getting not just a real fridge, but space for a freezer chest too!
