Double your dinner and save some in your freezer for later. It saves time and stress on those busy school nights. Running to soccer or baseball? Not a problem you have dinner waiting in the freezer. My family's freezer fav? Chicken Pot Pie!
one box pillsbury pie crust, one can 98% fat free cream of chicken, one small bag of mixed veggies and some sage and you have dinner. To cook fresh cook at 375 for 30-45 minutes until crust browns. From frozen 375 for 2 hours. I usually take mine out the night before and keep in the fridge.

It is as easy to cook many servings as it is to cook 1 serving. Place extra extra rice in freezer bags in portions. Cook large vegetable & meat dishes. Use freezer meal containers from Dollar Tree to make your own freezer meals. Put a date sticker on them.
Cook a big batch of ground beef for easy quick meals
I cook up several pounds of ground beef and keep a supply in the freezer. After cooking, freeze on a cookie sheet so you don't get a big frozen lump LOL and then transfer to a freezer bag or container. Having pre-cooked ground beef on hand makes spagetti, tacos, etc a snap to make!
Brown rice takes so long to cook. Well, cook a whole bag at one time. Then using a muffin tin fill each and put the entire thing in the freezer. Once frozen remove each rice "cup" and seal them in a freezer bag. When you want brown rice, just pop one in the microwave for about 2 minutes and it's done!
