we use the cookbook “don’t panic…dinner’s in the freezer” or something like that. there are a few varieties of it on amazon, and all of the recipes are designed to be prepared and frozen, then cooked. it’s great to spend sunday getting all of our meals ready for the week.

Shepard’s Pie and Chicken Divine (they both cook in a pan or caserole dish and freeze/thaw easily). Also stir fries and rice bowls work great, just cook the rice the night of.

PM me if you’d like my recipes for these 🙂

Do you have a slow cooker? I love throwing something in there in the morning, and coming home to an awesome meal! I even found a recipe for brownies in the slow cooker!!!

Here are some 5-ingredient soups and easy ones http://www.cookinglight.com/food/quick-healthy/healthy-5-ingredient-soup-recipes-00400000048543/ http://simmerandboil.cookinglight.com/2009/02/cold-nights-war.html 

Also, a lot of stuff made in the crock pot are good freezer foods- pulled pork and chicken, meatballs, also, make a lasagna except use parcooked eggplant instead of lasagna like this http://www.food.com/recipe/no-pasta-vegetable-lasagna-438023 http://www.cookinglight.com/food/quick-healthy/supereasy-soups-and-stews-00400000031717/ 

Casseroles http://www.cookinglight.com/food/recipe-finder/crowd-pleasing-casseroles-00400000001300/

Stuffed peppers freeze well, meatballs, stuffed burgers, meatload (in a muffin tin make for a great grab and go lunch too!)

Slow-cooker triple chocolate brownies – from Everyday Food March 2011

Makes 14

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup walnut halves, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (6 ounces)

Directions

  1. Lightly coat a 5-quart slow-cooker insert with cooking spray. Line bottom with parchment paper and lightly coat with spray. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt.
  2. Place butter and chocolate in a medium microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 30-second increments, stirring after each, until chocolate is melted. Add sugar; stir to combine. Stir in eggs. Add flour mixture, walnuts, and chocolate chips and stir just until moistened (do not overmix). Transfer to slow cooker and smooth top.
  3. Cover and cook on low, 3 1/2 hours. Uncover and cook 30 minutes. Remove insert from slow cooker and run a knife around edge to loosen brownies. Let cool completely in insert on a wire rack, about 2 hours. Turn out onto a work surface and cut into 14 brownies. (Store in an airtight container, up to 2 days.)

I just made some quick things that I can snack on!

English Muffin Pizzas – just sauce and your toppings on English muffins, bake for 10-15 mins at 350 degrees. Flash freeze them, hten you can put them in a big bag. They only take like 30 seconds to heat up!

Also I made quesadillas the other night with shredded chicken, jalapenos, green peppers, tomatoes, and I froze those. Again a super easy thing to microwave later.

You can also freeze pancakes. I know none of these are really very healthy things but I love having little things I can kind of snack on if I don’t want a big dinner.

Lasagna is great for freezing and having weeks later.  It’s really easy to make and you can just make a lot and save them in the freezer.  Fiance and I don’t live together…so I would make him a tray and pack it for him in individual container.  When he wants some, he just defrost it and heat it up in the microwave.  He loves it!  I made enough for him to have once a week for a month once. =)
