I dont usually cook and freeze sorry
I am making frozen breakfast sandwiches for the next week or two this afternoon. Turkey bacon, an egg, and cheese on an English muffin. Assemble, allow to cool, wrap in plastic wrap, and drop them all in a freezer bag. All you have to do is unwrap them and microwave them in the morning.
It is so nice to have a hot, homemade breakfast in 1 minute!
I think that someone already mentioned skinnymomskitchen.com. I love the blog and the recipes! You should check it out!
Quoting Kimberly954: what have you made so far? And i wouldnt make just one of the freezer meals. Make them in bulk. Make 4 at a time. 3 for her. 1 for you! :)

This is a recipe that started out as one that I got out of one of my Campbell's Soup Cookbooks a long time ago. It originally called for Chicken, but I used leftover Turkey and added celery and green pepper to get a tiny bit more vegetables into my kids. Turkey Tetrazzini8 oz spaghetti2 Tablespoons butter2 cups fresh sliced mushrooms1 small onion, diced (about 3/4 cup)1/2 green pepper, diced (about 3/4 cup)2 stalks celery, diced (about 3/4 cup2 cans cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup1soup can portion (or 1 1/4 cups) milk 2 cups cooked cubed turkey (or chicken)1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese1/4 cup minced fresh parsleyCook spaghetti according to package directions, but undercook just a bit; drain. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, melt butter and cook mushrooms, onion, celery and green pepper until tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in soup, and milk; stir to mix. Add cooked spaghetti to soup mixture. Add turkey, Parmesan and parsley. Toss lightly until spaghetti is coated. Pour into baking dish. Sprinkle more Parmesan on top if desired. Bake in oven for about 30 minutes, or until bubbly. Notes: To save time, you can also just heat everything together on top of the stove and skip the oven.
You can also do these with taco meat
Barbeque Cups1 lb. ground beef, pork or turkey1 bottle barbeque sauce2 cans refrigerator biscuitsCheddar cheeseBrown ground beef, drain. Return to pan and add sauce, heat through. Flatten each biscuit out and place in muffin tins, to form a cup. Spoon beef mixture into each cup. Cook about 10 minutes (check biscuit can for oven temperature, and reduce by 25 degrees). Remove from oven and add cheese. Return to oven for a couple more minutes, just to melt cheese.
Here's a good one
Burrito Pie 2 lb. ground beef1 onion, chopped2 t. minced garlic1 (2 oz.) can black olives, sliced1 (4 oz.) can diced green chile peppers (I omit these)1 (10 oz.) can diced tomatoes with green chile peppers (I omit these)1 (16 oz.) jar taco sauce2 (16 oz.) cans refried beans12 (8 inch) flour tortillas9 oz. shredded cheese1 packet of taco seasoningPreheat oven to 350 degrees.Saute ground beef for 5 minutes then add the onion and garlic and saute 5 minutes more. Drain excess fat. Mix in the olives, green chile peppers, tomatoes with green chile peppers, taco seasoning and taco sauce. Stir mixture thoroughly. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 15-20 minutes.Spray non-stick spray on casserole dish. Layer tortilla, add meat and then cheese. Spread next tortilla layer with refried beans and top the meat and cheese Then add another layer of meat and cheese and once again top with a tortilla spread with refried beans Repeat layers and finally top with more cheese. At this point you can freezer your burrito pie and save it for later.or Bake for 20-30 minutes at 350 or until cheese is slightly brown and bubbly. If frozen, thaw first and then bake as directed. Serve with sour cream, lettuce, additional salsa, etc. if desired.This will make a 9 x 13 inch pan. I usually do it in two smaller pans and freeze one.
