I did some impromptu freezer cooking throughout the week last week. It's a little bit of extra work, but it's so nice to have quick meals in the freezer--especially for lunch. My go-to lunch for months and months has been a delicious smoothie, but smoothie season is quickly coming to a halt as cooler weather moves in. We're not big on sandwiches since good quality sandwich meats are so pricey, but I love being able to have something quick at lunchtime so I don't have to spend a whole lot more time in the kitchen. Since I'm on a kick, I'm planning to double and freeze several recipes throughout the week this week, too.
Here's what I've got planned:
Breakfast burritos (scrambled eggs, crumbled sausage, black beans, cheese, salsa, and sour cream in a tortilla)
Pancake and sausage muffins (I made these last week and they were great! I'm going to double and soak the recipe and freeze some), scrambled eggs
Soaked whole wheat bread, scrambled eggs
Soaked baked oatmeal
Taco corn fritters (from the freezer), beans, carrot sticks
Chicken taco soup (from the freezer)
Super simple bean burritos (going to make a double batch and freeze--I made the tortillas last week)
Potato soup (I use chicken broth instead of water and skip the bullion)
Salmon patties, brown rice with steamed veggies
Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, salad
Homemade breakfast hot pockets (going to freeze a bunch for quick breakfasts), applesauce
Homemade pizza pockets (going to freeze some of these too), salad
What are y'all cooking this week?
