Parmesan Meatballs

Keeping meatballs in the freezer is something I have done for years. Whether they’re Italian, Greek, Swedish, or plain they always come in handy. One variety I haven’t made in a while is Parmesan meatballs. It’s crazy not to have these on hand! They are great for spaghetti and meatballs or for my favorite Parmesan meatball subs!

10 Freezer Meals to Make This Weekend

The last couple of weeks have been really rough on my physically. I think the weather played a large part since it was in the 60’s one day then the 30’s the next and continued to roller-coaster that way. I’ve also had a flare of the CRPS which scares the heck out of me. And the worst part was that I felt so awful I didn’t want to cook and we ate take-out twice! I finally decided I needed to restock my freezer meals and I thought I’d share what I made with 10 Freezer Meals to Make This Weekend.

Honey Mustard Chicken Thighs

When I went on my little freezer meal prep frenzy recently I had no idea how happy I’d be that I had them! Since I finally admitted, or rather my body forced me to admit, that I am sick Mr. Comfortable and I have been eating well with very little work. But I also wanted to so more than just make another slow cooker meal so I prepared the Honey Mustard Chicken Thighs a little differently. Read the recipe and method here

12 Freezer Meal Recipes – Day 2

After the fairly easy day of preparing freezer meals on Day 1 I was feeling pretty cocky when I got up on Day 2. My husband and my son had both agreed to help out for this day of cooking so I was sure I’d feel fine at the end of the day. “I’ll take ‘Famous Last Words’ for $1000, Alec.”

12 Freezer Meal Recipes – Day 1

I was going to start this post writing about the onset of the colder weather and how it made me realize I need to stock my freezer. That’s how I was going to start. I hopped (so to speak) out of bed eager to start cooking. But when I actually began making the freezer meals my body reminded me I’m a professional cripple so making them in a single day wasn’t going to happen. I’ll end up with 31 meals. That makes me happy. But feeling like I cheated in Vegas and was soundly beaten from head to toe…not so much. I had to spread cooking over 3 days so this 12 freezer meal recipes – Day 1.

Spiced Freezer Pickles

Nanny Jean, my mentor, friend, and neighbor when I was just a young wife taught me so much about life, child-rearing, and cooking. Without her I may have given up on serving anything that wasn’t store bought. One of the things she taught me was how to make spiced freezer pickles. These pickles are absolutely wonderful and are still crunchy a year after you put them in the freezer!
