The past few weeks I’ve been making freezer meals to have on hand for when the baby comes. So far I’ve thrown together the ingredients for buffalo chicken, salsa verde pork carnitas, and Italian beef sandwiches to be able to put into the slow cooker in our sleep deprived haze, and hope to get a couple of soups made to be frozen too. I’m thinking black bean soup, coconut red lentil soup, and some sort of white bean, kale, and sausage soup would be perfect.
While these will all be great options for lunch and dinner, I almost forgot we should probably have some things planned for breakfast too! I know smoothies will be great options, and am planning to throw together some smoothie bags, ready to go into the blender, but I’m sure there will be days where I need a solid breakfast. I hear breastfeeding makes one a ravenous beast.
Enter: Chorizo and Potato Breakfast Burritos that are freezer friendly. They turned out delicious (I had to sample one to make sure they re-heated well and tasted good!) and were really simple to make.
My only worry is that they are going to go fast! I’m thinking of making another batch or two in the next couple of weeks because knowing us, these will be gone within a week.
So I want to know – what are your favorite freezer meals? Is there anything I must make before the baby comes?
