Freezer Meals

Freezer meals are a means to provide your family with healthy foods without having to resort to fast food or sodium and preservative laden TV style dinners.

My weekend was spent making various freezer meals, tomorrow I hope to finish the remaining dishes, including the breakfasts and then move on to other projects.  I probably would have been finished with the dinner dishes today but ran into a time sink that involved defrosting my main freezer.

Pictured are: Turkey with stuffing, corn and carrots.  Tilapia nestled in butter noodles and covered with a cream and pico de guio served with yellow squash and zucchini.  Salisbury steak with mashed potatoes. Roasted chicken with herbed potatoes served with Brussels sprouts. Cashew Chicken with broccoli in cheese sauce. Spaghetti with green beans, Brats with German potatoes and carrots. Chicken enchilada with green beans and BBQ pulled chicken.

I won’t lie to you and say that making freezer meals to stock your freezer for a week, two-week or month is quick and easy. It isn’t.  It requires time and planning, but the benefits outweigh the negatives.  Freezer meals are financially saving to you.  Sure the original purchase of containers is involved, but once you have them, they are able to be reused time and time again.  Through using store sales and coupons you can save even more.

I really hope everyone tries at least some degree of freezer meals.  They really are worth it.
