Being Italian, I tend to cook in large portions. This is something that has always baffled my husband. I rarely make a meal that couldn’t feed at least 4 and leave ample leftovers.
In the last few years, I have learned to embrace the family size portions and even exaggerate the meal heft a bit more to feed us later. I have discovered freezing. At first I thought this would be barbaric and an insult to “real” cooking, but the truth is that certain dishes freeze exceptionally well. Here are some of my freezables:
- Homemade Spaghetti Sauce (with meat)
- Soups (all that I have tried work well)
- Leftover turkey from Thanksgiving (sans bones and skin)
- Homemade Pesto
These frozen homemade meals, make weeknight dinners a cinch.
Do you freeze?
