Meal Planning from the Freezer

Posted By Jessica Fisher On June 6, 2010 @ 1:23 pm In Freezer Cooking,Meal Planning | 14 Comments


Over the last week, I’ve been diligently planning and cooking and shopping and cooking to fill my freezer. I think I’m just about cooked out. But, the beauty of freezer meals is that the hard part is done now.

Freezer Meals in Real Life



  • Muffins [12] and Smoothies – Muffin mix [12] is already to go. Just mix up the red team and bake. Smoothies come together quickly in the magic bullet.
  • Burritos/Chimichangas [13] – These go fast around here. I made 44 and we’re down to about 20 now.
  • Pasta with Meat Sauce [7], Salad, Corn Bread – The sauce and corn bread are already to go in the freezer. Just boil some noodles and make a salad.


Wednesday (Birthday Boy chose the menu):

  • Eggs, Toast, Sausage
  • Chicken Pot Pie - This one threw me for a loop. Thankfully, I’ve got shredded chicken and broth [17] in the freezer.
  • Out to dinner


Friday (Park Day)

  • Scones - going to mix up a double or triple batch and freeze the extras uncooked. Works like a charm!
  • Picnic Sandwiches
  • Pizza Night [22] – dough, sauce, cheese, and toppings are already to go in the freezer. Easy night!

Saturday (Birthday Boy chose the menu):
