Busy? Want dinner already made? This group is for cooking ahead several meals and freezing them for easy serving later. Whether it's just doubling/tripling a recipe you're already cooking, and freezing the extra... or cooking up & freezing a month's worth of meals in one weekend!

How did you acquire your freezer?
What type is it? (Fridge only, Chest or Upright)
Where did you purchase it or was it given to you? I have been looking for sales and recently on local Craigslist. Any other suggestions?

I baked one of my pumpkin pies today...it had been prebaked and stored in the freezer for well over a month. It came out perfectly!
I have many other pies in the freezer just waiting to be baked...great head start on the holidays!
I found this recipe today...this could work really well I think, if you toss everything in a freezer bag, thaw the night before and pop it in the CP the following day.
My family is going to be trying a plethora of chicken dishes and very soon. ;-)
Everything I have made to freeze so far utilizes the latter method.

I have made triple batches and frozen them...cookie dough, breads, entrees and that sort of thing. However, I'm taking this seriously now. No really! LOL
I will soon have a big freezer in my basement and I'm very happy because I just prepared about 10-12 meals and frozen them. My regular freezer (pull out drawer/french door fridge) is absolutely stuffed and I know that isn't ideal. Plus, I am on a roll and want to keep going.
I'm really excited about this because I have always said that if you're going to make the effort and the mess, it may as well be once.
This summer has kicked my butt with the kids home from school, working, working more, helping hubby work on projects. I really want to take advantage of the ooomph and time I have when I have it!
The recipes I have gathered have been from a library book I just recently checked out as well as online on various sites and I will mention that I have already altered the originals. I think because many of the recipes I have seen are for 4 servings and we are a family of 5 in addition to us appreciating leftovers for lunches the following day. I have either doubled or increased ingredients by 50%, leaving extras out and adding where I feel necessary.
It will all work out. :-)
I wish I had a friend who is willing to help cook along with me!

Off to the Vet we went and she asked me to put raw Veggies on Abby's food. Abby cannot digest them raw so I boiled them up with beef broth and puréed them in the food processor...All ready for the freezer now in little ziplocks!
Cheap, good for diet and good for her! I had to come "tweet" about it so maybe a freezer pal would enjoy it too!
Hugs to you all Girls, I will write up the recipe and post it to the group!
