I am starting a little something new here. Every Tuesday I hope to leave you with a quick tip to help simplify your busy life.
Today I am going to share one of my favorite ways to have “emergency” freezer food on hand.
We try, emphasis on the try 🙂 to eat healthy. And I think we all know that pre-made foods are not very healthy. So that leaves me making dinner or heating up leftovers most evenings for dinner.
The fastest way to have healthy meals on short notice is to think ahead. Are you making meat-balls or meat-loaf for dinner? Double, or triple the recipe and freeze. I don’t even cook them a lot of times, I just form the meat into balls or a loaf, quick freeze on a cookies sheet and then pop the frozen meat-balls or meat-loaves into a zip-lock bag and into the freezer. Tada! Now when I get home late or don’t have much time to cook I can have these out thawing ahead of time, pop them in the oven and dinner is served!
Another thing to think about, soups and casseroles are easy to make in large quantities and freeze very nicely as well.
Also, if there is that new mother in your church, or you know some one who could use a helping hand. Having food pre-made in your freezer makes it super-dooper, easy-peasy to lend a helping hand.
