Menu Plan Monday: Freezer Meals


It has been a long time since I have done one of these. My life has been so hectic lately! A friend of mine asked me why I don’t batch cook so I have food ready for busy nights. So a couple weeks ago I made some batches of food up and it has been a tremendous help! So yesterday I spent 5 hours in the kitchen making up 17 meals! First I prepared 10 Freezer Meals from Living Well, Spending Less and then decided to add to it. I made up my giant batch of alphabet soup, a big batch of pasta sauce, and some black bean quesadilla stuffing. I used half the pasta sauce for dinner last night to make cheese ravioli and put the rest in a jar for later in the week. I left half the black bean quesadilla stuffing in the fridge for a meal this week and put half in the freezer for another day and left 1/3 of the soup in the fridge for dinner tonight. It feels so good to have a plan again and to know I have all those meals ready to go!

Alphabet Vegetable Soup


  • Alphabet Vegetable Soup
  • Crusty Bread


  • Black Bean Quesadillas


  • Honey Lemon Garlic Chicken

I already have a few more meals in mind to make up in batches to throw in the freezer. Today I need to finish doing inventory on my freezers so I know exactly what I have to finish my menu planning and figuring out what else to add. Do you batch cook?

  1. Love soup and anything one pot, so this works for me!

  2. I really need to get back to doing this. I will *try* for next week LOL

  3. I love that you made 17 (!!!) meals in one day! I am picky about frozen food so I don’t do that, but I do make a meal plan and stick to it!

  4. Oh man, you need to freeze me one of everything you’re having. Your menu plan sounds great!

  5. I love a good pot of soup. I have been meaning to menu plan now that the kids are out of school. I will have to try this!

    Those sound good! Where’s the recipes?

    • There are links to almost everything in the post. Was there something specific you were looking for?

  7. Jessica Ali says:

    Yes, stuffed cheddar burgers. I only checked my email, I’ll double check the blog. Thanks:)

    • Ah that one does not have a link. All I did was stuff some burgers with shredded cheddar cheese. 🙂

  8. I really need to do meal planning and freezer meals. Soups are one of my faves, too!

  9. I’ve been meal planning for several months, and I love it. I love soup and now I’m craving a bowl lol.

  10. Sounds like you got a good menu, those stuffed burgers sound so good!!!

  11. I generally don’t but that’s more because of the size of my family and my stage in life. With an 18 year old and just three of us in the house there’s not much need for batch cooking any more.

  12. You already know I love freezer meals! I need to check out that recipe for alphabet soup.

  13. I love this, I prepared chicken for this week.

  14. We love having meals in the freezer or fridge, it’s such an enormous help!
    All your meals sound delicious, I may have to make and freeze some 🙂

  15. This menu looks great. I could go for the stuffed cheddar burger right about now!

  16. So many delicious dinners! I’ve grown bored of our dinners lately.

  17. I really need to do some research on freezer meals because I hate cooking and eat out too much.

  18. I need to get into making more freezer meals to have on hand for hectic days. Thanks for sharing these yummy dishes.
