Freezer Meals — Menu Plan Nov. 11

Posted By Heather On November 11, 2013 @ 12:05 am In Menu Plan | 4 Comments


Autumnleaves [3]The Gluten-Free Menu Swap theme this week is Freezer Meals. Visit Melissa at Mom’s Plans [3] for the roundup of gluten-free menus.

I don’t freeze as many meals as I could. That’s mostly because I often use leftovers for lunches instead of freezing them. With the holidays approaching, I realize that it sure would make those busy holiday evenings easier. How great is it to just pull a casserole out of the freezer, defrost and bake?! I think I need to start cooking double batches of meals and freeze them for some of the busy nights ahead.

This week, I’m using shredded Mexican Chicken [4] from the freezer to make Chicken Tacos and Chicken Rice Bowls. I’m planning to make a large batch of Baked Chicken Nuggets [5], and freezing half of it. I may make a large batch of Chili to freeze, too. Other recipes that I find are good for freezing are BBQ Pulled Pork [6] and Chicken Enchiladas [7]. I often freeze items for breakfast, like pancakes [8], waffles, and muffins [9]. It makes the mornings go a little more smoothly before getting the kids off to school.

I’m anxious to see what everyone else is freezing. I know Melissa [3] and Angela [10] freeze meals on a regular basis. And, Amy from Simply Sugar and Gluten-Free did a round-up of freezer meals [11] earlier this year. Anybody else make it part of your weekly menu plans? What do you love to pull out of the freezer…besides ice cream?
