I need various recipes for meals, for a busy mom, that can be made and frozen for later use. What freezes well?
With my job hours I have to take my lunch & usually breakfast. For these reasons I freeze leftovers & double receipes for future use. (Blessed w/fridge & microwave at work!) If reheated some sauces will separate, esp. in the microwave. Love the freezer bags - lie flat on freezer shelf until frozen. Easy to stack & takes less space than the bowls. I do not freeze anything with mayo unless in cooked recipe. I also make & freeze undressed sandwiches for a quick sack lunch: PBJ, turkey, ham, chicken & keep mayo & mustard in work kitchen or use deli packs. Also bootleg the kiddie deli meals in baggies: meat, cheese, applesauce, etc. - grab & go. Panakes, waffles, cooked oatmeal, cream of wheat, etc. freeze well for quick breakfast. Homemade breakfast sandwiches freeze well & cost nothing compared to drive-thru prices.
In my experience, you can freeze pretty much anything …
F.ex. curried chicken, pasta sauces etc. Freeze them in portions and cook rice, pasta or what you like with it, fresh when you need it
I’m currently trying to put all frozen contents into bags to try and reduce that refrigerator taste things get when they are frozen for too long.
