Ideas for Frozen Meals?

June 8th, 2009 at 03:04 pm

I think I'll take this weekend and get some meals ready in the freezer. It'll be nice to have something to stick in the oven when both of us are tired and don't feel like cooking. I haven't even had the baby yet, and I feel myself getting very lazy in the kitchen--my big cooking accomplishment this week was BLTs and macaroni and cheese. Not the healthiest, but...

So does anyone have ideas for meals that freeze well, besides meatloaf, chili and lasagna? I have a lot of ground meat (beef and turkey), but am also open to recipes with chicken breasts, porkchops, roasts, etc. I have all that meat in freezer ready to go!

    I like the "Don't Panic: Dinner's in the Freezer" book.
    I got it from the library, but here it is on Amazon.
    Weliked almost everything I made from it.

    if you have a crockpot, take that frozen roast and dump a can of french onion soup over it and just let it cook all day. It will be fork tender at dinner time.

    Chicken cacciatore; coq a vin; taco meat; burittos, enchiladas; lentil soup, beef bourginon. Here is a blog of 3 ladies who have lots of ideas:

    I like to precook several pounds of ground turkey at the same time in varying forms to freeze for future meals.

    I just did a bunch of:

    -Ground turkey with onion - this will go in pasta sauce.
    -Ground turkey with onion & taco seasoning - Taco Meat
    -Meatloaf muffins
    -Chili
    -Sloppy joe
    -Crockpot shredded chicken taco filling

    I don't eat meat, but DF does, so once a week I cook him something in the slow cooker and there is usually enough for his lunch the next day and then a freezer meal. So I would suggest anything like that (i usually make beef & red wine with vegetables).
    soups freeze well. i have done a few batches of pumpkin soup, or lentil and sweet potato soup. you can bag these in ziplock bags too, which makes it a lot easier in your freezer space-wise.
    pasta sauces freeze well. then all you have to do is heat up the pasta.
    tomato based curries, like tikka masala, are also good.
