    Default Freezer meals

    Chicken was on sale this week, so i got some extra and made two freezer meals of chicken poppyseed casserole. Its really good even from the freezer. I like to do freezer meals ahead when at all possible. I ,ove knowing i have something i can just pull out if i need to that i still know what the exact ingredients are.
    Do you guys have any make ahead meals that you do alot?

    we don't usually prepare and freeze meals ahead of time. We do have a freezer and i always stock up on meat when it goes on sale. I have been waiting for months for the price of boneless chicken to go on sale.

    Sunday is our cooking day. We make 3 to 4 meals for the fridge/ freezer for the rest of the week. It's a lot easier, for us. We are usually not home until 6 pm and Stetson is usually down by 8. So it's nice to be able to grab whats is already made and have it down super fast. But we also buy in bulk at sam's and buy our own half a cow once a year. So we have a lot of extra meat at times! lol

    I always have a few freezer bags of red pasta sauce in the freezer (I'm a spaghetti snob and won't eat jarred). I sometimes make double batches of things and put half in the freezer for later, but I haven't been recently. Usually I get on it about 2 months before a baby is born so I have quick things to eat those first few weeks.

    Getting some freezer meals and well stocked cabinets together before little one's arrival is a goal of mine this time around. However I will start earlier rather than putting it off until the last few weeks like last time because DS's early arrival caught me by surprise. Fortunately, my close friend made us several vegetarian dishes and a huge pot of oatmeal to help us through that first week or so. We were so shell shocked as first time parents then too that venturing out to the kitchen to grab food while caring for DS seemed like a huge ordeal so hopefully this time around we will feel more confident

    OK Amber, I have been looking at this thread since you started it. I have to have this chicken poppyseed recipe... It sounds amazing.

    Haha. Its a super simple recipe, and even easier to double. Here goes:
    Cook 3 large pieces of chicken however you like, i prefer in the slow cooker and they just fall apart. In the meantime, cook a small box (or slightly less, depending on you casserole dish) of just about any pasta you like.... egg noodles, elbows, penne, whatever. Then shred the chicken.
    In a large bowl mix together a can of cream of celery soup, 8ounces of sour cream, and a small chopped onion, salt and pepper to taste, natures seasoning to taste, and about a tablespoon of poppyseeds. Then add the shredded chicken to the mixture.
    Put the cooked pasta in the bottom of your dish, top with chicken mixture. Freeze at this point if not going to back and eat immediately.
    If you want to go ahead and bake, top with one sleeve of ritz crackers crushed and some butter (you judge amount).
    I do use reduced fat soup and sour cream and its just fine. Still not super healthy, but i never claimed that..... Haha.
