Cinnamon Rolls (secret recipe)
Blueberry and Choc. Chip Muffins
We will fill in with Sandwiches, mac and cheese, pasta and leftovers from dinner.
2 Roast Chickens
We will also use left over chicken from the roast chicken to make quesadillas.
A couple of things that might help if you are cooking for the freezer for the first time. I use mainly gallon size zip bags to freeze the items in. I do get the disposable tin containers for some things, like a lasagna or the pizza casserole just because it would not look nearly as appealing if I just dumped it all into a container and cooked.
If the dish contains pasta, I under cook the pasta by half the time so that during the freezing and reheating it does not end up soggy.....so far it has worked nicely!
Here is a link to a cinnamon roll recipe, this is not the one I use, but she does have an excellent way to freeze them and this is the freezing method I use. The muffins are just those cheap ones that you just have to add either milk or water and bake. I bake them and then wrap them in plastic wrap after cooled and throw them into the freezer bag. Then all I have to do is pull out what I need and warm in microwave.
I usually date, place the name of the dish, and cooking directions on the outside of every container or bag to make it easier on cooking day.
I would love to hear about any recipes you like to cook and freeze!
