Busy Busy we’re all busy these days. No time to cook or eat or think about dinner. Then it’s time to set yourself up for success. Success at the dinner table with easy meals. These are the meals that I either make on the weekend and then freeze all the leftovers to pop out and heat when there is no time to cook, or ones I let a slow cooker do all of the work and just serve. These are the two ways not to cook a great dinner keeping that easy healthy gluten free life!
Here’s what you’ll find in my freezer right now:
Chicken Croquets with gravy I froze in ice cube trays for easy use.
Creamy Dairy Free Mashed Potatoes – yes you can freeze them. I scoop them out onto a cookie sheet and freeze them individually, then put them into a large plastic bag.
Meatloaves- again make individual portions and use the cookie sheet method for freezing. Or you can just make slow cooker Meatloaf.
Meatballs -very versatile and always a favorite here. Again, use the cookie sheet method for freezing.
Fish Cakes – gosh I really need to share this recipe. Easy and fast. (cooked fish, cooked potatoes, seasonings of choice, gf breadcrumbs, egg)
Paleo Scrapple – I freeze it in individual small sized loaf pans.
Here’s what I’ll toss into the slow cooker:
Sloppy Lentils from More Make It Fast Cook It Slow Stephanie O’Dea
Now there are a lot more possibilities for both and I bet you have some up your sleeve.
What do you like to make extra of to freeze for use later or what’s your favorite slow cooker meal? Please share now.
