I’m a huge fan of freezer cooking. Unfortunately I haven’t gotten it together enough to get a full stash of meals in the freezer. But one smart move saved dinner one day last week.
The day didn’t go quite as planned. Dinner wasn’t looking promising. As I started thinking about how quickly I could defrost chicken, I spied a Ziploc bag in the freezer. YES! The last time I made Southwest Chicken Wraps, I made an extra batch and froze them. So I sat them on the counter for half an hour and then popped them in the oven. Add green beans and – voila! – it’s dinner.
The moral of the story? It might be nice to do a full-blown freezer cooking session. But…..
You can save dinner by making a double batch of SOMETHING once in a while. (You might want to click here to Tweet that. Someone who follows you probably needs that advice. 😉 )
I’m not sure what I’ll be doubling this week yet, but here’s what’s on the plan.
:: Dinners ::
Chicken Fried Rice
Sticky Chicken, Broccoli, Crock Pot Baked Potatoes
Cream Cheese Chicken Soup (made with homemade chicken broth & leftover chicken)
Spaghetti, DIY Pizza Hut Cheese Bread
Oven-Baked Fish, Green Beans, Potatoes
Slow Cooker Maple Chicken & Sweet Potatoes
