Freezer Cooking

Yeah it’s not about making soap this time. ;)

I saw something online awhile ago that got me to thinking. It’s getting summertime now and I hate to be in the kitchen cooking when I can be doing something else. I’ve gotten to where I hate to cook and I guess I am just plain out burnt out on it. Anyway with this in mind I was thinking about cooking some meals to stick in the freezer so when I am worn out from working in the yard all day or canning all day, I could just grab something out of the freezer for dinner. I sometimes cook too much of an item so I can put the rest in the freezer for later. I do this a lot with soups and chili. BUT since it’s getting summer no one around here is going to want soup or chili.

I need some ideas for things that freeze well. I’ve got one of those Once A Month Cookbooks so I will refer back to that as well.

I would like some ideas from you all about meals you freeze that freezes well.

Here are a couple links in case you’re interested in this.
