Filling my freezer was one of the best things I did to prepare for the birth of Noah. Take a look at that glorously full freezer above. *sigh* Doesn’t it just make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside? 😉
(I made a bunch of stuff, but I’m not super woman. My mother-in-law and a girlfriend helped out a lot by contributing freezer meals. I am blessed!)
Here is a sampling of the dishes that are waiting for me in my freezer.
6 Freezer Friendly Recipes
Crockpot Chicken with Black Beans – This is a super simple creamy, Mexican chicken dish. The first time I made it, I served it over white rice. The second time I tried a yellow Spanish rice, which was amazing.
Pizza Casserole – Cheese and pepperoni and noodles, OH MY!
Homemade Smoothie Kits – I didn’t follow this recipe exactly (mostly because I forgot that it called for orange juice concentrate and I didn’t have any). I was still really impressed with her method for freezing yogurt. When I’m ready to make my smoothies I’ll just need to add a splash of juice or milk.
Zuppa Toscana Soup – This is an Olive Garden soup. Enough said, right?
Enchilada Meatballs – This was a fun spin on traditional meatballs.
Curried Lentils – This dish has become a batch cooking staple in my house. I always double the recipe and freeze half when I make it.
