I’ve been channeling my energy into nesting. Crafty projects (you’ve seen a few). Cooking big meals. I generally cook big meals with leftovers, but have consciously been doing this more & freezing big batches.
A few of my favorite things to prep ahead & freeze:
*soups, especially black bean or chicken and wild rice
*pasta–with lots of veggies
*lasagne (I mean what kid doesn’t like pasta?)
*mini quiches–bake, freeze, microwave & go. We love these as a good way to get protein in the morning.
*put chicken, vegetables, potatoes, and marinade in a ziploc. Freeze. Put in baking dish when ready.
*side dishes like mashed sweet potatoes, cut up veggies with balsamic ready for oven roasting
*chili!–black bean & sweet potato, white bean chicken chili, traditional chili… we could eat it once a week at our house
What is your favorite meal to prep ahead and freeze?
