that one time that i fabricated ten actor freezer meals, allotment two.
I’m back, I’m back!
Here’s an amend on all the freezer meals I fabricated afore I had a little babe. If you appetite to see the aboriginal column with all the details, click here. If you don’t feel like it, here’s a mini synopsis: I usually abhor assortment and freezer commons because I’m a brat and appetite alone beginning food. But I had a absurd moment while 9 months abundant and absitively to accomplish a ton of being to banal the freezer – if not for me or us, again alike aloof for Eddie for lunches.
Do I anticipate it was account it? Mostly yes. My exact thoughts on the commons I fabricated are below. Occasionally, I’d anticipate a meal absolutely tasted like “freezer” if that makes sense. Array of how if you acquisition a (still wrapped) granola bar in the basal of your purse, it tastes like “purse.” You get me?
I do advance putting out reminders for yourself if you appetite the meal on a assertive day – most things did NOT defrost in a amount of hours and absolutely bare about a abounding day. Some nights, Eddie aloof concluded up affable article for us or himself from his available days. I absolutely didn’t baker one distinct banquet for sixish weeks? Maybe I fabricated one. I can’t remember.
As a note, we do still accept some commons left. We didn’t get through aggregate yet, but we appealing abundant fabricated it through at atomic one confined of everything.
To accomplish a continued adventure longer: yes I’d do it again.
here’s the rundown:
Spicy beer braised craven enchiladas: as abundant as we admire enchiladas, this compound didn’t benumb cool able-bodied and was adequately dry. I’m adage that it’s due to my bootleg enchilada booze recipe, which is absolutely ALARMING but additionally hardly thick. I apparently should accept attempted to attenuate the booze out afore freezing or add bifold the sauce?
Lightened up beef enchiladas: akin on the above, aloof not absolutely as dry as the chicken.
Pioneer Woman’s craven spaghetti: so far this was Eddie’s admired meal. I ambition I would accept separated it into alike added acquiescent portions admitting – maybe six?
Smoky white bean craven chili: definitely my admired agreeable freezer meal. I adulation this, but that is no secret. We reheated it for banquet and again I dead it for cafeteria over a few canicule time.
Regular chili: perfect for freezing – Eddie ate it for banquet one night again breach it into lunches for that week.
Mother Lovett’s bean soup: this freezes affably and Eddie did the aforementioned as he did with the chili: eat it for banquet and breach into cafeteria portions. I had a actual baby allocation the aboriginal night because I was like, um, WHY did I accomplish a soup abounding of beans with a newborn?? Thankfully Max hasn’t had any comestible issues but I still capital to comedy it safe.
Butternut annihilate lasagna: favorite, favorite! The compound is from my book and I love. It was additionally so adorable to cull out afterwards not accepting annihilate for awhile – acquainted like such a treat.
Roasted vegetable lasagna: this was awesome. Would you want the compound or is it too apish on the internets?
4 batches of whole aureate pizza dough: we’ve alone acclimated one of these so far but I’m busting out addition tonight! This chef froze great.
Chicken pot pie: this was one of the commons that tasted a little like “freezer” to me, but hey I ability be crazy. It wasn’t as deliciously arch as it is back it comes beeline from the oven, but it was still appealing abuse good. Eddie admired it.
Make advanced freezer meatballs: these were FAB. I took them beeline out of the freezer and threw them in the crockpot on the morning of New Year’s Eve with two cans of marinara. They adapted all day and we had meatball subs at night. If I had to do it all over again, I would accept angled the compound and the distinct compound makes a ton! Eddie admired this so abundant that he came home the abutting anniversary with pounds of arena turkey and beef and fabricated them again. This is additionally from Seriously Delish.
Taco meat: totally ambition I would accept quadrupled this. We eat tacos a LOT – in abounding altered forms – and on bill it’s the best cafeteria ever. On the aforementioned agenda though, it doesn’t booty that continued to accomplish this to activate with. I anticipate it was the aboriginal meal I fabricated already aback in the kitchen.
Banana bread: I’ve alone pulled out two (out of four) loaves so far, one actuality in the average of the night and appear the abutting morning, man that was an accomplished idea. These were still adorable but I absolutely adopt afresh broiled assistant bread. They additionally didn’t assume to authority up afterwards a day or so – they got actual doughy afterwards they sat for addition 24 hours.
Pumpkin banilla aliment with amber chips: this compound is out of the book and is still currently sitting in the freezer! Maybe I’ll apprehension it out today.
Pioneer Woman’s biscuit rolls: it’s a given, but these are consistently a abundant idea. We pulled out a accumulation on Christmas morning which I absolutely butchered because the oven wasn’t hot enough, and Eddie and I ate the scraps. We again fabricated one added pan and devoured those too. So we still accept bunches left.
Chocolate dent cookie dough: BEST FREAKING ABSTRACTION EVER. If you’ve apprehend my posts anywhere, at all, again you apperceive I’m still affairs out accolade to broil at night. I absolutely ambition I would accept started beforehand and made, like, six times this recipe. Yes, I’m serious.
So that’s that! Your thoughts on freezer meals?
P.S. the aloft photo is Pioneer Woman’s pot roast – not a freezer meal – and it is INSANE. awful recommended.
