Re: Meals I can freeze -- Need ideas

Check out and then search for OAMC (once a month cooking) and you'll find a bunch. One we really liked was called Bombay Chicken I think.

Re: Meals I can freeze -- Need ideas

enchiladas Or the EASY version... enchilada pie. Spray your pan then layer these ingredients like a lasagna (We call this enchilasagna in our house)

* corn tortillas
* enchilada sauce (I don't like the strong flavor, so I mix one small can enchilada sauce and 1 small can tomato soup)
* ground beef (you could make it vegetarian by using kidney or black beans instead)
* shredded cheese

top with black olives & more cheese

You could make this a chicken enchilasagna if you use chicken and green enchilada sauce - don't use tomato soup with the green sauce though

Re: Meals I can freeze -- Need ideas

I know I've posted this several times before but I love to share

Super Simple Tasty Baked Zitti:

1/2 box of Whole wheat Healthy Harvest Penne Pasta (or same) precooked
One Jar Newman's Own Tomato Basil Sauce (or your fave) *But this sauce needs nothing else it's good even right out of the jar with crackers
8 oz Cubed or Shredded Mozzarella

Mix together cover with foil & bake at 350 for 30 mins. This meal can be frozen for a later date.
A traditional Filipino Dish
What my mama used to make for fevers, and rainy days and my personal comfort food.
Also great for morning sickness.

Boil 1/2 pnd.Chicken Breast or Thighs with onions and garlic for stock. Make at least 6-7 cups of stock (or boil left over chicken roast bone and all)
*Personally I prefer to use a pressure cooker to make the stock. and if you want to cut time those precooked rotisserie chnx are great for this
2 tbl. spn. Corn oil
1/2 c. yellow Onions
1/4 c. Finely chopped Ginger
1 tbl. spn. chopped Garlic
1 3/4 c. cooked rice (can be brown, white, *basmati Brown it's up to you)
Handful of Green/ Spring onions for Garnish
*To keep in tune with my mom's recipe I'll add Pancit Behon (clear noodles) found in the asian section of your grocery store.

Strain boiled chicken from stock. Set aside stock. Shredd the boiled chicken. Add oil to stock pot then throw in onions, let them sweat a bit.
Next add Garlic and Ginger. Once the aroma of Ginger fills the air mix in the shredded chicken. Place two cups chicken stock add salt and pepper to taste. Let the mixture concentrate then add rice and 3 more cups of stock. You may need to add more stock after the rice has swelled up. *Sometimes I add more flavor by using some chicken boullion if the stock isn't as strong as I'd like. Bring to boil turn off the heat then toss in the Green onions.
*Also if you are going to add the Behon noodles let them soak in a bowl of water until soft but not mushy then toss along with green onions.

Note this*symbol represents my personal twists to this recipe.

Can be frozen and reheated for a cold rainy day.
Mmmm Masarap!!!


Minestrone Soup, Stew, Borchet, and Curry dishes are also great for freezing! I always make double the batch and freeze the rest for a "I don't feel like cooking day"

Here's a link that might help as well.

BTW~ I had the Borchet as my first real meal after giving birth to my DD and I swear it rejuvenated me. It's made with beets and beets help strengthen and clear the blood. And I really need it because I lost a lot of blood.

Re: Meals I can freeze -- Need ideas

that is a great site - thank you so much!!

when we had our baby, a friend did this for us - so nice!!

she made:
twice baked potatoes
chicken cordon bleu
beef stew (no potatoes)

I personally have found that most recipes with pasta freeze well.
