Nesting has begun and along with it some stocking of the freezer we were gifted with this fall. One of the best things I did the last time around the pregnancy/child-birth clock was prepping meals for our freezer. The worst thing I did was staying up to all hours of the night doing it. But those breakfast burritos were a hit!
Whether you are pregnant like me or not, freezer meals are great to have any time of the year for your own family, to offer to a family in need or to pull out if you have surprise guests! I’ve always wanted to be one of those moms who could just grab something from the freezer on a busy day. My dream freezer grab would be frozen dough that I could just whip into a yummy loaf of fresh bread, but I’m not there yet. I do however want to share some of the tastiest recipes I’ve prepped so far! Today’s Meal Prep Monday will be focused on the frozen meal recipes I’ve gathered from one of my new favorite blogs- Happy Money Saver.
It all started when one day I googled “freezing chicken noodle soup.” (Helpful tip: If you plan on freezing any amount, don’t add the noodles until you actually plan on enjoying it, or substitute noodles for beans or rice. They get a little sloppy otherwise, which my hubby says is not a deal breaker, for him, but I wouldn’t serve it to guests! ) I started wondering what else I could freeze and started with loads of soup like Chilis, spicy sausage and kale, chicken enchilada, etc. They all turned out great thawed, so I started looking into other types of freezer meals and I stumbled across this wonderful website. Here’s some of the recipes I’ve tried from her site that I wanted to share!
