You probably arrived at this page because you asked the question “how do you freeze” a certain item. My goal is to answer any question in terms of food or technique so that you are able to prepare foods to consume now and/or freeze for later.
Freezing some of your meals is a very rewarding accomplishment and very liberating. It feels so good when a recipe is completed and there is enough food to serve at your next meal and also enough to save a meal in the freezer. When I have a little bit of extra time to cook I make sure to get a double batch of something made. If there are completed dinners, sides and/or snacks I feel like shouting it from the rooftop or at least posting it on my social websites.
To me the hardest part of cooking is the meal planning. The age old question – What’s for dinner? If you have a casserole in the freezer all you need to do is add a veggie or salad and possibly some bread to complete a meal. If you only have sides in the freezer then your planning is still half done. Add a simple pasta or rice dish.
You do need to plan a bit. Pull something from the freezer and put it in the refrigerator to serve the next night. If you don’t get to it the next night for one reason or another it will still be perfectly good in the next day or two. Simple.
