I am thankful for FREEZER FOOD! Wait, didn't I already say that one once? Haha! Well, I am SUPER thankful for it these days . I thought I would share a few of my favorite freezable items that are usually pretty stocked around our house!
1- Fruit packets- these little guys are nice to have to just throw in a smoothie. No washing, chopping, or thought required . I have even put in frozen cubes of greek yogurt and that is great too! Super yummy to toss into a Greenberry Shakeology! I usually just throw the fruit that is about to go bad in out fridge in a ziploc and there ya have it!
2- Vegetables- I love having veggies in my freezer to use in different meals like stir-fry's, salsas, soups, or just as sides! We like to stock up on fresh corn in the summer and bag our own. Other veggies I usually end up buying in the freezer section. Broccoli and peas are two that we keep on hand! There are so many veggies you can freeze yourself- a great thing to do during harvest if you are a gardener .
3- Soup! I know I talk way too much about freezer soup, but for real-it's AMAZING. A new trick I learned (to save containers and fridge space) is to freeze your soup in the containers and then pop them out into a large ziploc. Genius!
4- Pizza crust- mix up your favorite pizza crust and freeze it with wax paper in between OR in balls. Put in the microwave to defrost. This is one of my favorite go-to dinners for the weekends. Make one big batch of dough and you'll have pizza every weekend for a month!
5- Cookies- I do cookies two ways. The first is to stir up the batter, roll out the dough balls, put them on a cookies sheet and flash freeze them, then put them in a ziploc bag to freeze. I like this way when I need a lot of cookies when company is here. The second way is to cook the cookies and then put two or so in little bags and then all of those into a big ziploc and freeze. Then you can just grab a bag of 2 out when you want something sweet and not have to make a whole batch! Love it .
