Freezer Queen

I got into the habit of cooking a bunch of stuff every other weekend (every week may be necessary for your family). I make batches of spaghetti sauce, pot pie filling, chicken Parmesan, all sorts of soups, taco meat, enchiladas, a variety of casseroles, meatloaf, etc...anything you can make and freeze. Then portion it out into serving sizes that fit your family's needs. Pull it out of the freezer in the morning, add a veggie or salad, and dinner is ready in 30 minutes or less.

I actually started doing this when there were just 2 of us at my house and we were on different schedules. I put meals into individual serving sizes, so my son could warm up a meal before he went off to class. I could also take a portion to work for lunch. I've told others that you just build up a rotation in the freezer. Make a double batch and freeze half. In a few weeks you'll have a lot ready in the freezer if you don't have a weekend to spend cooking.

I also make cookie dough and freeze it in a zipper bag. Make sure to write the cooking time & temp. When you get ready to bake them, bu the tip off the end of the zip bag and squeeze out your cookies. Fresh baked cookies if you can't eat a whole batch at one time.

Another plus, in the hot summer, you only spend one day heating up the house cooking and baking.
