Hi there,
We MOSTLY eat fresh foods and tons of fruits and veggies, but I am a busy, homeschooling Mom etc, etc, so I do need to grab and go sometimes...

What would you stock your freezer with?

:) Thanks!

I am trying to figure this out too. I'm freezing dinner leftovers like mad (I make huge veggie casseroles, main dishes, etc.). I freeze them in single-serving containers so I just can grab one for lunch.

Trying go get into the Sunday "cook big" habit. I'm making big batches of beans, rice, etc. and freezing single servings of those too. I have to make sure I don't have any excuse to go munch on Pirates Booty or gluten-free chips instead of healthier stuff!

It also makes fixing dinner easier, I can reheat those basic foods and just add fresh veggies, fish, chicken etc.

I'm sure you will get the freeze soups or chli ideas. Homemade soups can be put over rice or noodles for something different. Chili can be put on nachos or salads. My son likes melted cheese on the chips and dip in the chili.

I make a big batch or 2 of smoothies and freeze them in this type of container or small bowls. You could also freeze them in ice cube trays or popsicle containers.

Quick to grab one and briefly microwave or let it sit out and stir. We like to eat them with a poon frozen, too. I hate cleaning the blender. :(

Forgot :

Hub grills extra burgers for my parents to put in thier freezer. Just microwave, yum!

I cook extra turkey Ital sausage and keep in the freezer. Make ahead or get a gluten-free brand of meatballs are a good idea. Hot dogs.

Stuff made with Tinkyada pasta freezes well for me if it's not overboiled. I freeze lasagna and homemade mac and cheese (12 minutes cook time for the elbow mac) in individual serving sizes. Anything that comes out of a crockpot with a sauce usually freezes well. I also make pizza and freeze individually wrapped slices - these are good lunches for when you don't have a refrigerator or microwave.

Thanks for all the great tips! Anyone have an "inventory list" of what they aim to have in their freezers?

Here's what's in my freezer so far (in case it's helpful for others (note that 3 out of 4 of us are diagnosed Celiac, so our house and freezer are 100% gluten free so all items are gluten-free):

- 2 loaves of UDI's bread
- 1 package of Kinni (sp?) hotdog buns
- 4 homemade Blueberry Muffins
- 4 homemade Pumpkin Muffins
- 1 homemade quiche
- 3 WF Cupcakes (note that I need to make these homemade next time--600 calories and 55 grams of sugar!!!)
- Whole chicken breast
- Sausage
- Chicken nuggets
- Salmon
- 2 packs of freezer rice

Wants:
- 2 pie shells
- 4 pizza crusts
- 2 oven-ready pizzas (does anyone prep theirs and then freeze them?)
- 2 more loaves of bread
- 2-4 soups
- 1 chili
- 1-2 lasagnas
- 1-2 mac n cheeses
- 4 burritos
- Chicken mole
- Meatballs

Would love to hear what you all would add!
:)

Thanks for all the great tips! Anyone have an "inventory list" of what they aim to have in their freezers?

I have been trying to stock up my freezer with gluten-free foods for myself. I have made different types of stews in the crockpot, and frozen them in one meal size tupperware. I have also made spaghetti sauces and added lots of fresh produce from my garden. Unfortunatly, for three dishes that I made a ton of, I used spices that I have come to believe were not gluten-free, or at the very least, disagreed with me. So bummed. But, my non-gluten-free husband is enjoying bringing them to work for lunches. Oh well. I also noticed that my baking soda could have trace amounts. I can handle all the obvious gluten containing ingredients, it's the ones you don't expect that are making life difficult.

I'm new here and really appreciating all the info in the forums.
