Good Morning!

For the past 4 months, I have gone to Let's Dish (www.letsdish.com) every month to make several freezer meals.

Their meals are for 6, and I have been able to "split" them to only serve 3.

THIS month, however, I need to make my own freezer meals...and I would LOVE to be able to make single/double/triple portions for those nights I am eating alone...or with a friend.

Any ideas? Besides teh basic meatloaf...what are you favorite/easiest freezer meals?

THANKS!

Mrs B

I like to make big batches of meatballs and sauce for spaghetti or meatball sandwiches.

Lasagna freezes great - I got some great glass 9x7 pans, that way I get two lasagnas instead of one 9x13

I have a recipe for a chicken and rice dish that freezes nicely.

I also like to make big batches of soup (chicken noodles, crab bisque, stew, etc.) and freeze

You can take that lasagne (or baked ziti), cool it, and cut it into single-serving portions. Then freeze each separately for individual portions. Same thing with chicken or eggplant parm. Any sort of stew is good. Pulled pork. You can toss together a stir fry pretty easily - if you freeze it before adding too much seasoning, you have options of what to add when you reheat.

I have 2 small pyrex dishes that are about 1/2 the size of a normal casserole dish. They fit in a toaster oven, so that gives you an idea of the size. Sometimes, I make casseroles, just like for any freezer cooking, and just freeze in 2 batches.

about anything that calls for 1 9x13 pan can be split into 2 or 3 loaf pans, which is perfect for 2 or 3 people

Why don't you just redo some of the freezer meals you were taught how to make?
