10 Easy Freezer Meals

Nothing is better than knowing you have a busy day ahead and you can pull a meal out of the freezer.
Here are 10 of my favorite freezer meals for you!

I'm often asked how I get meals onto the table each night without pulling my hair out in the process. With three kids under the age of 5, a husband who works odd hours, a dog and (sometimes) a life, it can be a challenge.

Children often have that “witching hour” from 4-6 p.m. when they want/need/whine about everything. Heck, sometimes husbands have that, too! During those tense hours the last thing us moms (or dads, or any care provider) need to worry about is what we’re serving for dinner.

With each child I've had, I've gotten smarter about meal planning. On top of my regular meal planning (you can see a sample here), I also try to prep freezer meals along the way. That way, when things get crazy in our house and my plan has gone awry or if I'm just feeling lazy, I can pull out an already-prepped meal from the freezer in the morning and think nothing more of dinner until we sit down that night.

After 5+ years of food blogging, I've created some killer meals that freeze well...and I've created some downright disgusting ones. You know, some things just don't freeze well! Lucky for you, I've only compiled the great ones. And you can always double the batch.

Here are some of our family favorites:
