It's almost at that time where I'm feeling the need to stockpile some good meals in the freezer so we're not under at least that pressure when the little one gets here. Do you have any favorites that reheat well from the freezer?
Soup and chili are two of my freezer faves. I keep a full stock all winter of those two, baby or not! A square ziploc container full of soup or chili feeds our family of three perfectly when we add rice or salad as a side! SUPER easy, and all I do is cook up huge batches in my crock pot. I can usually get 6 meals out of one prep!
Stew is the same, but I'm not good at making it so we don't have it as often. When my husband makes it I get him to make a huge batch and, same thing, it goes a LONG way.
I freeze beef paprika (stew beef in a sweet tomato based paprika sauce) ahead of time as well, it's easy to do.
Lasagna and enchilada lasagna are both easy.
I do make chicken pot pie filling in big batches as well, and all I have to do is take it out the night before, defrost it and add some pie crust or puff pastry before baking. Very easy!
I'll be freezing a lot of what is mentioned already. In addition to, scalloped potatoes and ham. I have yet to make a list of what I'll be doing. My step-mom is going to help me, probably in September. We have to buy another freezer too.
