Create Easy Delicious Freezer Meal Ingredients

and Save Time and Money in the Kitchen

In this article I am going to follow-up on my recent post on Easy Delicious Freezer Meals from one of my favorite books Make It Freeze It. This post will focus on awesome info on easy delicious freezer meal ingredients to prep for your favorite meals. Rather than prepare the entire meal in advance, I love to take my favorite ingredients for my favorite meals and prepare and freeze them to save time and increase productivity in the kitchen.

I ran across this wonderful idea from my wellness coach Sally Twellman’s Anytime Chicken. Sally cooks her chicken in a crock pot. I do too and also love to roast a couple of chickens as well as use a crock pot. Here is my advice on saving time in the kitchen and make easy delicious freezer meal ingredients in advance. You will enjoy your favorite meals and cut your cooking time in half.

    1. Make a list of your favorite meals. Once you have a complete list, keep it on hand. It makes meal planning a cinch.
    2. Take a close look at each meal. Is there meat and or veggies that you can cook and freeze in advance? Can you chop any of the veggies now and store them in the freezer for later?
    3. Now, decide how you will cook your ingredients. Our family loves tacos (any kind), enchiladas (any kind), spaghetti and lasagna, baked potatoes with all kinds of healthy toppings, breakfast for dinner tarts, strata and pastry cups, quiche, mashed potatoes, veggies with couscous, chili of any kind, soups, burritos, stews, casseroles, shepherd’s pie (a family favorite), red beans a rice (super healthy) and mac-n-cheese. I cook the meat and chop the veggies for all of these and freeze them in either mason jars or baggies.

Which ingredients do I cook and which do I not?

  1. I cook my hamburger, veal and any ground meats, let them cool and then freeze them according to the amount called for in the respective recipes. Cook my chicken in two different ways. Roast whole chickens, cool them and freeze the meat. I also cook chicken breasts in the crock pot, cool and then freeze them.

  2. When prepping your veggies, you can either freeze them cooked or raw. For some veggies, like enchiladas, I do both. I cook some onions in the meat and cut fresh green onions for the topping. I slightly cook some veggies like for stew, I gently cook my carrots, celery, bell pepper and onions, bag them and pop them in the freezer. These veggies work great in soup as well. Vella!!!

Fall in love with making easy delicious freezer meal ingredients and make your life easier

It took me about 10 seconds to fall in love with the kitchen cooking productivity and organization tip. I love to prepare most of my meat that I fry for foods and have it ready in the freezer. And the same goes with my veggies that can be prepared in advance. Another important tip. Try to keep things healthy. I mainly use the lowest fat type of meats that I can. For example,  try chicken bacon rather than pork bacon. Use 90% lean meats rather than 80%.

And that’s it! This process is super easy and saves lots of time. Try them to make easy delicious freezer meal ingredients.

  • Love your idea of freezing components. I finally made a spreadsheet of our favorite meals and the ingredients, so making the grocery list takes only a few minutes!

      What a fantastic idea Cathy. Even better to laminate it to preserve the spreadsheet. Did you develop it in Excel? Google Sheets?

This post will be short and sweet. I want to follow-up on my last post Organizing the Basement. As I mentioned in that post, sorting your belongings into quadrants or corners in the basement by Toss, Donate, Sell or Keep. Read more here https://buff.ly/2xjjMyk

I have a client who wants to #organize her entire home. That's her basement in the featured picture. I'm very excited to see someone who is psyched to organize their entire house. She had a house fire a few weeks ago.  It should take about 6 months to complete the home repairs so that she can move back in. And when she does, all of her stuff will come with her and all of it needs weeding and #organizing. https://buff.ly/2eRz8QP

  • Get that pantry ready for the holidays Yes, the holidays are two months away. Unbelievable. I would be remiss if I did not start the holiday prep cycle with cleaning out your pantry and kitchen drawers. So it's time to get that pantry ready for the holidays. First things first-Weed! Go through your entire pantry. I have a small kitchen, so my pantry is a nice armoire that I bought at some years ago. [  374 more words ]⠀
