Prepping for Baby

Well, my due date has come and gone… and still no baby. Clearly she’s letting us know who is in charge already. 😉

But it’s okay, because it’s given me a little extra time to add a few last minute touches to the nursery. More to come on that eventually. Being the third kid means things don’t get done quite as quickly as it did with the first two.

I’ve also been a bit of a freezer meal queen lately. Our fridge is now stocked with some of my favorite freezer meals, because once baby girl gets here? Momma’s kitchen will be temporarily closed. Anyway, I’ve had several people ask for some good freezer recipes, so I thought I’d share here! My process is pretty simple. I didn’t have a big “meal prep day” like some bloggers I’ve seen. Basically I would make a double batch of dinner and freeze one. These meals will keep their quality for about 3 months (they’ll still be okay to eat after that, but they may not be as tasty).

Freezer Meals

(I never claim to be a food photographer… )

Supplies that will definitely come in handy:

  • Gallon size freezer bags (get the good brand… I’ve had soups leak before with the cheap store brands)
  • Aluminum foil
  • Parchment paper
  • Plastic wrap
  • Sharpie for labeling

And without further adieu, here are a few of my absolute favorite freezer meals. Not only are they super easy to put together, but they’re simple to heat up as well.

  1. Broccoli and Cheese Twice Baked Potatoes
  2. Brown Sugar Meatloaf
  3. Hamburger Patties
  4. Chicken Pot Pie
  5. Chicken and Lime Soup (this one is super budget friendly too!!)
  6. Honey Yogurt Waffles (I make a double batch of this one… my toddler LOVES these for breakfast)

    We’ve only managed to freeze a meal successfully once, and that was by accident. My son cooked a Boston Butt in the crockpot and we ended up with more minced barbecue than we could eat, so we froze the rest. In the past, I’ve tried to make a double batch of a meal for freezing but the kids’ appetites seemed to expand with the amount of food I cooked! Come this fall, however, all the kids will be gone or working so maybe I will be able to actually build up a stash of freezer meals for myself.ReplyCancel
