Freezer meals can save you so much time int he kitchen! As mentioned in my fall favorites, I started to get back into cooking freezer meals. I do not know why I stopped!
When my kiddos were little I used to make freezer meals all the time. Especially when I was preparing for a new addition to our family. It was so convenient to know my family could still have a home cooked meal while I was busy with the new baby.
Another benefit, saving money. When I have a bunch of meals in the freezer there really is no excuse for takeout.
There are so many ways you can prepare for making freezer meals. I like to mix it up depending on how busy I am, but here are the two I stick with.
- Meal plan a week or month and grocery shop once. Pick a day and cook your butt off in the kitchen.
- Make a double or quadruple batch of tonight’s breakfast or dinner and freeze the remainder.

What I like to do is keep a list on hand of our favorite meals. I do this regardless whether I’m making freezer meals or not.
I like the convenience of it when meal planning too. Once a month I will pick a meal from this list and work them into my days. These are the meals I cook to freeze, that way I know my kiddos will eat them. Always a challenge with my picky eater.
When freezing I like to use Freezer Ziploc bags. I find this works best for me however you can use foil pans covered well with plastic wrap and foil. I know many people that use a vacuum sealer as well.
The most important part is to seal whatever you are using VERY well to prevent freezer burn. You can easily do this with a Ziploc by folding over the bag and getting all the air out. Write on the bag or slap a label on them and you are done!
