Freezeable meals for when the baby comes
My daughter is expecting in a few weeks. Does anyone have any tried and true ideas for freezable meals she can prepare now for later?
italian beef. when reheating just heat it through without boiling so meat doesn't toughen.
chicken soup, but leave noodles out til ready to use or they'll mush up.
baked mac and cheese
I like to marinate & grill chicken breasts, then freeze. Very versatile, so convenient.
all the best to your daughter.
I have the following in my freezer:
Pasta sauces, w/ and w/o meat
Creamy creamed soup (made of carrot, potato, onion)
Lentil and chorizo soup/stew
Slow-cooked meats (a chili style and a BBQ style)
These are each in identical plastic tubs, each good for 2-6 servings. Thaw in the ref, re-heat, serve with what is appropriate: tortillas, rice, or bread.
Taco meat in batches for taco salad, questadias,
Beef barley soup in small freezer bags
Bag of frozen meatballs from M&M
Pork and veg spring rolls from Costco (mmmm)
Grilled chicken breasts cut up (great for stir/fry or pasta)
I'm addicted to those bags of fresh baby carrots, for just munching or cut on the diag. or matchstick.
