We are nearing the end of our school year here in Chattanooga. I’m sure public school lets out sooner, but the private school where we live ends May 31.
That makes me very, very excited because it means Mr. V is home! All the time! So we can each spend some one-on-one time with the kids, have family outings, take trips. But it also means: THE DINING HALL IS CLOSED.
Which, really, is OK with me right now. I look forward to cooking meals and not having to drag the baby to the dining hall in the sling and dropping food on him while I try to eat. But it sure is convenient not to have to cook or clean up.
So right now I’m using minutes here and there to throw some meals together for the freezer. As you can tell, our freezer is not very big so I can only do so much at one time. But every bit helps for the future.
Here’s what I’ve made this time around:
- Taco Chicken for Taco Chicken Bowls
- Honey Parmesan Pork Roast
- Texas Squealer Burgers
- Asian Chicken Drumsticks
- Banana Flax Pancakes
All of these either go in the slow cooker or the grill, which is great for the summer. (The pancakes can go in the microwave or toaster.)
I also made this lovely Roasted Red Pepper Butter Sauce! I froze the extra sauce and will use it to drizzle over vegetables or fish sometime later in the summer.
Here are some other favorites for freezing:
- Toddler Thai Noodles with Peanut Sauce
- Pulled Pork with Lexington Red Sauce
- Stuffed Buffalo Chicken
- Tomato Basil Hamburgers
- Toddler French Toast Sticks
- Apricot Breakfast Bars
- Sweet Aromatic Chicken
What’s your favorite recipe for freezing? Do you do a lot of make-ahead meals?
