Freezer Meals Menu

We have a huge freezer in the basement that came with our castle. In fact, I think it was installed the day the house was built, because there is no way that it would fit through the basement kitchen door, now that the basement has been remodeled. It comes in really handy for stocking up on meat sales, freezing fresh fruit and vegetables, and of course, staying stocked up on ice cream. ;-)

Lover and I sat down the other day and decided on a list of a few easy meals that freeze well that we would like to keep stocked in the freezer. Here's what we came up with.
  • Chicken Marsala - This is the easiest, and yummiest meal ever, and great for guests. No. of portions: 4 (guest sized)
  • Lasagna - Is there anything that freezes better than this? Yum. No. of portions: 4 square pans
  • Fajitas - this meal keeps ridiculously well in the freezer, and is so simple to make up. No. of portions: 4
  • Quesadillas - Lover makes THE best quesadillas in the world. We test froze some and they held up great. No. of portions: 2
  • Stir Fry Chicken - If the chicken is all seasoned and ready, then making up a meal of stir fry is a piece of cake. Portions: 4
  • Spinach Dip - Once again, this is Lover's domain (have I mentioned that my husband is a gourmet cook?) Portions: 8 small dishes
  • Pizza - Homemade pizza. Best. Ever. Portions: 4
There are a few other ingredients that need to be frozen along with these meals to make the meal complete:
  • 1 package fajita tortillas
  • 2 baguettes
  • Ciabatta bread, made into garlic bread for the spinach dip (about 16 mini loaves)
Along with all of this, we like to keep the freezer stocked with:
  • A bunch of cooked, seasoned chicken breasts that can be easily thawed for chicken salad, quesadillas, etc.
  • Shredded cheese (mozzarella and cheddar)
  • Butter
  • Vanilla Ice Cream (for all those desserts that are made scrumptious by a scoop of vanilla)
  • Peppers and Onions (Sliced and in meal sized portions)
  • Strawberries (for desserts and smoothies)
  • Bananas (sliced, for smoothies and banana bread)
  • Several packages of hot dog and hamburger buns
Last week I listed my goals for fall and stocking the freezer was one of the goals. Hopefully I will be able to get this done soon! :-)

What about you? What do you keep stocked in your freezer? Besides ice cream of course. :-)

Do you even KNOW how much I want an extra freezer. I don't really stock up on freezer meals becaues of space restrictions, but perhaps someday.

There is a great thread online for making meals for a month in one day. I'm thinking I read about it on The Working Woman's Guide to Success. You should check it out.
