You never know when you may need one. In a hurry and need a meal for work? Grab a container of chili-topped squash or sweet potato from the freezer? Not feeling good and don’t want to cook? Take out a container of chicken noodle soup and heat it in the microwave.
It’s easy to prepare these extra meals without too much extra effort. Simply make a little more than you need at each meal, and freeze a meal or two from that. Here are some recipes that lend themselves well to freezer storage.
- Autumn Turkey Soup
- Chili with ‘Cornbread’ Topping
- Homemade Chicken Soup
- Sausage & Apple One-Pan Meal
Label each container with the meal name and the date it should be eaten by.
