I just froze 11 burritos for lunches.

I found these great low carb tortillas (otherwise burritos have way too much carbs for me)

I put a little less than 1/2 c. refried beans (I use eden)
around 1 oz. shredded cheese
around 1 Tbsp maybe a little more salsa.
Wrap up and heat for 45 seconds.

In this case I did all but the last step. I wrapped 11 of them in plastic. Wrapped that in aluminum foil and wrote on the foil cheese burrito and stuck in the freezer. the last one I ate for dinner. Now I have a quick recipe which I turned into an even quicker lunch.

Hi and welcome! This has been a pretty quiet team, I just joined myself a few months ago.

Anyway I love to freeze meals in advance. You can find tons of great books on the subject. I recomend you start with your family's favorites and decide if you can freeze them. When I set out to freeze something I normally will cook something off my regular meal, double it, serve one meal and freeze the second one.

In my freezer I always have frozen marinara or meat sauce, meatballs, pizza dough, a few favorite casseroles, lasagna, cookie dough, chili, meats frozen in marinades, rice and soups.

Good Luck!

Hi everyone,

I am thrilled to have found this SP group as I am have a 40+ hour a week job and comute a little over an hour each day. When I get home I dont want to think of what I need to cook and would really like to have something prepared and in the freezer ready to pull out and heat up. Do you have any good recipes for meals? Thanks for the help and input.
