Good Morning!<br><br>
I am really excited! Tomorrow, husband and I will be getting together to make some freezer meals. This will be the first month that we are doing our own...so far, we have gone to Let's Dish each month.<br><br>
What is one of your favorite NT/TF freezer meals?<br><br>
I am looking for meals that can easily be "cut-in-half"...as it's just the two of us. Or, if not "cut-in-half", can at least be split-up in different containers for freezing.<br><br>
Thanks! I am really excited!<br><br>

* <b>meatloaf</b> is easy to freeze and reheat (you can even portion it into slices before freezing and separate them with parchment...can be reheated under the broiler for "toasted" slice that's heaven on sourdough!) - the NT recipe is great (w/ or w/o the heart), very tender with all the veggies and cream...don't add any topping until about 20 min before it's ready or the tomato product of choice will burn<br><br>
* <b>lasagne</b> made with brown rice noodles (oven ready so really easy) - the brown rice flavor, but pasta texture took a little getting used to, but it's good and TF (lasagne can also be portioned and frozen after it's cooked...easy to reheat in the oven is you have some time)<br><br>
soups and stews portioned as you want<br><br>
I'm drawing blanks on more ideas...can't wait to see what else people post! great thread!

I second the meatloaf idea. I make mini meatloaves of 1/4 lb. of meat each (my own recipe, I haven't tried the one in NT) and freeze them. Then let them thaw in the fridge overnight (however many you want), put ketchup on top, and cook at 425 F for 25-30 minutes.<br><br>
I also came up with a chicken fajita recipe as well that works well in the freezer. Fry up some chicken strips, red peppers and onions (I just season with salt and pepper but you could add other spices too), and roll with a little shredded cheese (I usually use Monterey Jack but you can use whatever you like) and little salsa into sprouted wheat flour tortillas then freeze. Take out however many you want and let thaw overnight and heat for a few minutes in the oven. (If you are in a hurry you can microwave them from frozen for a couple of minutes, but that wouldn't be NT <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">).
