The other option is you can put on the apron, roll up your sleeves, kiss the kids goodbye, and do freezer cooking all in one day like I did.
Having a stockpile of Freezer meals is invaluable especially when you get sick for a few days or weeks, have a baby, or just have a hard day and don’t feel like cooking. Homemade Hamburger Patties (3) – just mixed bread crumbs, Parmesan, garlic, and onion powder + 1 egg in large batch hamburger.
Chimichangas (2) – shredded chicken, spanish rice and cheese added to large burrito, and folded. Making a ton of freezer meals all in one day can be extremely rewarding and save you a lot of time. If you have made freezer meals what are your favorite freezer friendly recipes?
Also check out my huge list of freezer meal supplies you will need to get before you start. I see that the last comments were from last year, but I wanted to say that if you have a Kroger affiliated store (I have a Dillons here in KS) they send mailers with coupons in them and there are always fresh produce coupons in them. When I make pancakes or French toast for my kids, I make extra, let them cool and freeze them in sets of two. Hi Anna, I usually just grab one out and stick it in the fridge in the morning or the night before, so it thaws in the fridge all day. Crockpot type freezer meals are best thawed the night before in the fridge, but everything else I just take out in the morning to thaw in my fridge. I have been just using the regular lasagna noodles and not even doing anything with them, just using them dry like the no-bake ones ( I saw this in a cookbook and was skeptical) but they turned out just as good as if I took the time to cook them first! I have a silly question, for the chicken recipes (sweet and sour chicken), would you cook it fully and then freeze it or dont cook the chicken before freezing?
For the sweet and sour chicken, if you fully cook, then freeze, does it come out as crispy? Potatoes (26%), Water, Button Sprouts (13%), Carrots (13%), Cooked Chopped and Formed Turkey (11%), Pork and Onion and Sage Stuffing Ball (5%), Cooked Pork Sausage (2%), Cranberry Sauce (2%), Modified Maize Starch, Tomato Paste, Chicken Bouillon, Sugar, Salt, Caramelised Sugar Syrup, Barley Malt Extract, White Pepper.
I doubled the recipe for a church potluck and used one link of Eckrich smoked Sausage and one link of their jalapeno and cheese sausage.
Not having to cook for a month was heavenly and I didn’t miss working every day in the kitchen.
For those of you who don’t want to spend the whole day cooking here is a helpful hint: For Freezer cooking you can try to just double or triple your recipes all the time, eating the one you made for dinner and freezing the others for later. To take the load off some people even create freezer meal groups with friends, making meals and meeting to swap freezer meals so everyone comes home with a variety of meals. And in California, there is actually a state law that forbids stores from doubling coupons! Saute your Hillshire Farm Smoked Turkey Sausage with some onion and garlic, then add tomatoes, pasta, cream, chicken broth and seasons. I'm Kristin, the creative mind behind Yellow Bliss Road where you will be inspired by tons of easy to follow recipes, lots of free printables, and a little sprinkling of life thrown in for good measure. I used rotel instead to give it a little kick plus some chopped bacon and a couple different cheeses…perfect!
It wasn’t too hot, actually no heat at all from the sausage, and it all gave it great flavor.
Made for dinner tonight and substituted Italian sausage, we will also add pepper jack cheese next time too. Hubbs went back for seconds, and even ate some cold this morning bc he couldn’t wait to heat it! Cooking a month of meals for the freezer all in one day makes for a stress-free and often quick meal time for busy families.
This would be really fun , however I have never done it myself (hint to all my friends out there). Then you can go through all the sales ads for the week and find things that are on sale or seasonal. After taking those things into consideration make your list of meals you want to make. Also call the companies for the products that you purchase and give them feedback on there products and they will send you coupons for those products.
I cook two weeks at a time 3 meals a day so I think first making a meal plan is needed before starting to cook.
I’d hate to make all these meals and have them ruined because I thawed or warmed the meal up wrong. You could just stick it in the oven frozen and bake – but it would take 2 hours instead of 1 hour.
I took advantage of the #Buy3Save3 deal at Vons and saved $3 when I bought three packages of Hillshire Farm meat. It only takes about 15 minutes to cook – add some cheese and you’re good to go! Add garlic and cook for about 30 seconds. Add chicken broth, tomatoes, milk, pasta, and seasonings.
I am going to add a half of a Green pepper, only because I need to use it be for it ruins.
I do call it my Oompa Loompa meal because at least one of my twins always looks like one afterward.
It is over a pound… I cooked the frozen chicken a little, it is already pre cooked, and added half a box of mini bow ties. DISCLAIMER: The content on the blog Happy Money Saver is for educational and informational purposes only, and is not intended as medical advice.

I’ve got two more packages and another recipe I’m itching to test out, so be sure to be on the lookout! When all ingredients were in skillet I noticed the pasta needed more liquid so I added more stock and cream till pasta was just covered but not submerged.
