    Default Freezer Stock Up ideas

    I'm hoping to cook some meals to stock up the freezer with prior to bubs' arrival. I've kind of run out of ideas though, after cooking a beef cheek stew, a chicken curry and some spag bol.
    Please hit me with your best freezeable recipes!

    Lots of different stews and casseroles are good to freeze. These meals were on my list before my mum stocked the freezer for me -

    Satay Beef
    Country chicken casserole
    Curried sausages
    Shepherd's Pie
    Honey mustard chicken
    Mac & cheese
    Chicken & bacon pasta bake

    - bolognese sauce
    - meatballs in sauce
    - satay beef (would this freeze ok?)
    - risotto freezes ok as my cousin froze heaps of bags of it into individual serves

    we didn’t really do the cook and freeze thing this time, we’ve been fortunate in that dh’s aunties and mil have been cooking us food. however i did do a list leading up to the birth of quick/simple meal ideas in case we got stuck. you know, stuff that i could throw together if i had to that require little to no prep. i’ll find it and copy and paste it for you.

    i’ve also been making soup in my
    slow cooker which has been terrific for quick and healthy lunches in a hurry when i’m home on my own. my fave is this one: http://www.greeningofgavin.com/2009/...rice-soup.html

    i don’t bother adding rice though and i blitz mine so it’s thick and smooth. serve with crusty bread (or just toast with butter lol) and it’s a delicious winter lunch.

    we also ordered a bunch of dineamic meals....they are more homestyle frozen meals. if you have some freezer space, they can be a good idea as well. we order off the mains menu and then add our own sides, usually some pasta or a rice pouch and some frozen veg

    ok here it is copied and pasted from my phone notes

    quick, no-cook/no-prep dinner ideas:

    coles chicken shnitz - bake in oven from frozen. add pasta sauce, ham & cheese for chicken parmas. serve with microwave frozen veg and oven chips/gems/wedges

    coles beef shnitz. serve as above.

    aldi honey & soy chicken skewers (10 in a pack). serve with pouch rice and stir fry frozen veg.

    boneless butterflied marinated chicken from aldi/coles - cook in oven then serve with microwave frozen veg and pouch rice. or in wraps (wrap bread with salad & mayo).

    coles roast chicken and salad in wraps/damper buns. add sliced cheese and mayo etc.

    latina fresh pasta with stir thru sauce and frozen broc added for greens.

    tacos - beef mince is quick to cook then serve with wrap bread/corn chips and fresh salad, cheese, sour cream etc.

    homemade pizzas - lavash bread, ham, spring onion, olives, pizza sauce/tomato stir thru sauce, whatever other toppings are on hand. assemble & grill.

    other carbs/fillers:
    garlic bread
    pouch rice
    pasta

    prob not the healthiest but they fill the gap and are relatively simple to throw together. ds eats all/most of the above too which is handy as we didn’t want to be doing separate meals for him

    Not a meal but you could make protein balls and freeze, great snack to fill you up. Also, I did ziplocks of frozen fruit with baby spinach then once thawed a bit, add dairy to blend. Very filling

    Oh yeah, i did ZIP lock bags of frozen stuff for smoothies for when i was too tired to even eat but knew i needed some energy.
    I do: oats, pepita seeds, pineapple chunks, kale/spinach, banana and some berries. I buy the coles frozen berries and pineapple
    Just chuck in blender from frozen, add water and skull. Was easy to drink when feeding bubbs too.
