The Best Freezer Friendly Meals

2018 was a year of surgeries for me. I started the year with gallbladder surgery and I ended the year with knee surgery. While I would love to say my surgery days are behind me, the truth is, my knee surgery I had in October was part one of two. The second part is scheduled for April 8th. One of the things I told my self was that when I had surgery again, I wanted to make sure I had a bunch of freezer friendly meals made. This way, my husband has one less thing to think about while he is taking care of everything. I’m a nice wife like that!

I’m not really one to make New Years resolutions. However, I do like to set goals for myself. One of my 2019 goals was to be better about making things ahead, stocking the freezer and making life easier for me. With a husband that travels for work, a kid in high school that takes 45 minutes (one way) to get to, plus kids in travel sports, never mind the stuff I need to do for myself, I need to embrace making life easier whenever I can.

Freezer Cooking Tips

When it comes to making freezer friendly meals, you want to make sure you do the following things to ensure your meals come out perfectly!

  1. When you are making something like the egg muffins, allow the muffins to cool completely and then wrap each individual egg muffin in plastic wrap and then in foil.
  2. For casserole type dishes, you can assemble and freeze uncooked or freeze after cooking. If you choose to freeze uncooked, thaw the casserole completely before baking.
  3. With the stuffed chicken breasts, I would assemble, freeze and then cook.
  4. Label everything with what it is, how to cook it and the date.
