A few weeks ago I asked on my Facebook page (if you are not a fan you are missing out 🙂 ) for Ask The Readers question ideas. You all had some great questions and today I am posting the first one.
Amanda is looking for some healthy/frugal meals to keep on hand in the freezer.
Freezer meals are perfect for busy days and we all have busy days, so this is a great subject Amanda. Thank you for bringing it up.
My favorite things to keep in the freezer are not really whole meals, but parts of meals. I prefer to keep seasoned taco meat, cooked chicken, barbecue pork, chili, and a few other cooked things in the freezer to use in meals.
I find keeping the main ingredient of a meal in the freezer like taco meat gives me more options. Instead of just tacos I can serve nachos, enchiladas, taco salad, etc. If I have cooked chicken on hand I can use it in enchiladas, casseroles, soups, tacos, etc.
I know many of you also do forms of freezer cooking so what ideas do you have for Amanda? I can’t wait to hear your suggestions.
