Longtime reader and commenter, Tracy left this comment on yesterday’s Menu Monday:
Hello Heather and group! I truly hope that I am not out of place to ask for some advice. I am about to go thro surgery for cancer and Doc says I wont be able to much for 2-3 weeks. I always cook from scratch and I am looking for some “t.v.” dinner ideas. I have done the meatloaf and mash, turkey and mash, soup, spagetti and I am not in the mood for the sameold when I come home this time. Does anyone have any ideas for something new that I can make to serve 1, I dont have a problem with bulk cooking. It just needs to be freezer and micro friendly. Thank you so much!
Before I address the questions, I want to let you know, this is exactly why we’re here. Secondly you’ll be in our thoughts and prayers.
For the most part, I tend to turn to beef for freezer meals, as helpful people usually bring chicken. That said, there are some exceptions in the list I’m about to share. I’d like to open the comments to anyone who has a great link or recipe for their favorite freezer meals.
Here’s a list of recipes available here that I find great for the freezer:
- Beef Stew
- Chicken bog
- Chimichangas – oven fried
- Lentil Casserole
Sub sandwiches, as well as on pasta. To thaw I just heat them in marinara
- Pulled Pork
This can be used for sandwiches or served over rice
- Sausage, peppers, and onions
The bell peppers won’t be crisp tender, but still excellent over rice or bread
- Taco soup
- Tomato Soup
- Two Bean Tamale Pie (vegetarian)
Ok Home Eccers, add the best of what you have for Tracy!
