Freezer meals are so great. They are the taste of homemade meals done easy! There are so many different variations but I thought I would share a few that always stay in our freezer!
• 1 cup whole wheat flour
• 1/2 cup rice cereal
• 1/2 cup oatmeal cereal
• 1 puréed pear – or fruit of your choice – can also use 1/2 cup of apple sauce
• 2 eggs
• 1 tablespoon of butter
• 1 cup of milk
• water – until desired consistency
• dash of cinnamon or vanilla – optional
Directions: Prepare as you would regular pancakes. This recipe will yield 8 adult sized pancakes. Once finished frying, put into individual bags and into the freezer! So simple and delicious! When you are ready to defrost, just stick them in the microwave for about 45 seconds!
• 2 celery sticks
• 2 carrot sticks
• 1/2 head of cauliflower
• 1 head of broccoli
• 1/2 sweet potato (forgot to put it in the picture 🙈)
• 1 can of white kidney beans
• 1 can of corn
• 1 can of sweet peas
• 1 can of green beans
Directions: Cut up all raw vegetables and boil until tender. While waiting for your fresh vegetables to be done; open your cans, rinse veggies, & transfer to bowl. Once your fresh vegetables are done, strain and transfer to bowl as well. Fill individual bags and put them straight into the freezer! These are also very simple and Aubrey loves them! When you are ready to defrost them (I usually put some butter on top first), then just stick them in the microwave for 1 minute! TaDa! 👏🏼
• 12 whole wheat flour tortillas
• 1 large can refried beans
• half block of cheese – grated
• 2 cups brown rice
• 1 cup of salsa – fresh is best!
Directions: These are so easy and convenient! Unfortunately, I didn’t get to take step by step pictures but I will explain as best I can! In a large saucepan, heat up your salsa and beans. Cook rice according to package. Lay out your tortillas and fill with bean mixture, cooked rice, and grated cheese. Sprinkle with salt, fold your tortillas, put into baggies, and right into the freezer! These are great for next day lunches or nights where your too busy for a home cooked meal!
I am always thrilled to hear how these things to turn out for everyone. Feel free to leave your comments and as always, have a happy Wednesday! Stay tuned in for next week, we will be discussing how to pack up your house on a budget!
