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.


  1. SASS!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is the first post I have seen from you since I started actually reading my feed again in Google Reader! Miss you girl! I haven't talked to you in sooo long.

    How are you? I am doing some shopping and freezer cooking today, too. I am going to try to get together with a couple moms and some freezer cooking/swapping once a month.

  2. I also want to extend a hand of service to you. I started doing some blog design stuff and would love to do a little banner or something for you if you like... gratis of course :)

  3. Wow.. great minds think a like. I am going to be working on some breakfast items. Going to make a quiche, cut and freeze the slices to warm up.

  4. I hear burritos freeze really well, and you can just zap 'em in the microwave when you're ready to eat them.
