Now that I'm getting closer and closer to my due date with Blitzen I am starting to buy the ingredients for all the meals I want to freeze. I'd LOVE some help! I'm not a natural cook and require hardcore recipes in order to make anything (I have a recipe card for hard boiling eggs...I'm not kidding...). When I look for recipes to freeze, I do not know if it's possible to freeze it unless the recipe says so. I'm sure some of you out there freeze all kinds of meals that I would even attempt freezing simply because I don't know it's an option. Enlighten me please!
Here are the meals I already have recipes for that say you can freeze them:
- cheddar chicken soup
- minestrone soup
- easy chicken casserole
- comforting chicken casserole
- green bean chicken casserole
- beef stroganof
Here are some meals I plan to buy that are easy to make or come already frozen (they are all okay but the home cooked stuff is SO much better, especially when you're a nursing mother and could eat non-stop!):
- canned green beans
- frozen tubes of creamed corn
- Pillsbury bread items
- cinnamon rolls
- muffins (the just add water type)
- sausage balls (can't freeze but they are easy to make)
- chicken pockets (can't freeze but are easy to make)
- pasta bags - just boil and add sauce!
- bagged frozen dinners
- pre-made boxed dinners
I'll post all the recipes that I use via my other blog and will give credit to each person who submitted it. Even if you just have a link to a recipe from a website that would be so helpful and will save me the time and energy from having to look myself. Especially if you've ever tried it and know it's good!
I can't wait to have a freezer full of food for our family of four!
Thanks in advance for your help!!!
P.S: I'm also in the process of gathering addresses for my upcoming baby showers, Blitzen's birth announcements, and to update my Christmas card list! If you have changed your address in the last year or want to be added to my list (the more the merrier!) please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can email recipes there too if you'd rather! Thanks again!
