Freezer Cooking Preparation
One of the things that got pushed to the side during the frantic chaos leading up to the holidays was freezer cooking. I'm not the type that does 30 meals in a day. I'm just not good enough at planning it all out. What I actually do though is prepare a ton of ground chuck, some taco seasoned and some not for use throughout the month. I also like to cook up a a whole chicken or two, shred it up and freeze it.
Sometimes, I'll also do a few baked goods, but since my waistline is feeling the effects of a baking frenzy over the holidays, I'll pass on that this time around!
What I really need is some good lunch ideas for the freezer. I come home for lunch most days (my office is really close by) and I often eat leftovers or whatever is handy. But I'd like to have some better ideas to provide a bit more variety. Something I can just thaw, heat and eat. I need to do more online research because so far I haven't come up with anything that seems really appealing. Y'all let me know if you have any good ideas!!!!
For today though, I'm heading to two stores to pick up what I need for cooking: ground chuck, chicken, onions, zucchini, plus a few things Publix was out of stock on when I went on Wednesday. I'll get the cooking done either today or tomorrow. Trying to decide which! So that's my "grand plan" -- plus trying to find lunch ideas.
