Freezer Friendly Stuffed Mexi-burgers
Nearly every meal I prepare consists of foods I have cooked or baked in bulk and frozen. I thaw items in a plastic shoe box to prevent condensation dripping onto my shelves (I’ve learned from experience). Then I shop my freezer from my freezer inventory, to see what goodies I can thaw and serve to my family and others. I write these items down on a seven-day menu plan and post it on my refrigerator as a reminder to thaw my food 24 hours ahead of time. Typically right after the dishes are done, I check my menu plan and put new items into my thawing box and slash them off my freezer inventory.
We rotate the same breakfast items each week:
- Freezer waffles with fresh/frozen seasonal fruit or homemade syrup
- Homemade Crock pot yogurt with homemade granola
- Oatmeal with cranberries, walnuts and raw sugar
- Cheerios with bananas and milk
- Scrambled eggs and quick bread like banana or zucchini
We rotate leftovers, wraps, sandwiches and salads for lunch.
- Stuffed Mexi-burgers, grilled potato wedges, freezer apple crisp kit (camping meal for my husband and friends)
- Freezer waffles, sausage, crock pot apple sauce (from the freezer), fried eggs
- 5 minute tacos, carrot sticks
- Crock pot Southwest Chicken, pintos and cheese and homemade tortillas
- Crock pot chicken enchiladas with leftover crock pot chicken and freezer enchilada sauce, salad
- No boil mac and cheese (trying in the crock pot), salmon patties, salad
Snacks and Desserts:
My husband is going on his yearly man retreat and I’ll send a complete meal with apple crisp for dessert. Be sure to check out my freezer kit since apple season is upon us. You can preserve apples for crisps or crock pot cobblers. School is in full swing and I have my two-year-old at home to myself two days a week. All the kids have gone to bed before 9 p.m. What a blessing! How is your school year starting off? Are you incorporating more freezer foods like I am?
