Winter Meals.. to freeze?

Before we go back to school I want to do some cooking..

Do you have any go to meals you can recommend? I'd like things that freeze easy. Even crock pot ideas or pressure cooker ideas.

I have both.

I'm not sure how well this freezes (just made it the first time a few nights ago!) but it was just so simple! It literally took 20 minutes from the time I took things out of the fridge to start prepping, to the time I sat down to eat!

I didn't even add the bacon (didn't want to make a trip to the store!) and it was delicious. I did put the leftovers in the freezer to see how it would turn out--I'll let you know!

You can use any vegetable, meat and cheeses you want. It is inexpensive (especially if you make your own crust and grate your own cheese) and a great way to use leftover meat or vegetables. The number of possibilities are endless. And you can eat it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Just add fruit or a green salad.

Freeze it already baked.

Some things I've baked ahead and froze for future meals:

Ricotta stuffed shells with sauce and meatballs
Chicken casserole in pastry
Meatloaf
Twice baked potatoes
Baked Macaroni

I made this recipe tonight and it was super simple. If you just had the chicken cooked ahead of time, it would be easy. Or - make it all except the chickpeas, freeze, then thaw/cook- add chickpeas and make a rice to eat with. I did use a full can of diced tomatoes and chicken broth and it was fine. The sauce was good with the rice.

Spaghetti sauce freezes well.
Green chili does, too. I make mine with the recipe off the back of a frozen pack of green chilis.

I love these chicken taquitos. I make them and put them in a ziplock freezer bag. Then I can take out however many I want at the time and stick them in the microwave!

Crockpot Tortellini Soup
Old 01-02-2018, 07:13 PM

This is such a yummy recipe, and it does freeze well.

1 (19oz) bag of frozen or fresh cheese tortellini
1 small bag of fresh spinach
1 (14.5 oz) can of Italian style diced tomatoes
1 can Rotel tomatoes
1 block (8 oz) of cream cheese
1 lb. of ground sausage
4 cups of chicken broth

Brown the sausage and put all ingredients in crockpot, chunking up the cream cheese. Cook on low for 4-6 hrs. Can also cook on the stove - just need to make sure the tortellini is cooked through.

Serves 4-6

I do a ton of soup in the winter and it all freezes really well.

I love pretty much all of her recipes:
