Foodie Friday: Freeze-Ahead Meals

I've never been the type of person to make a big batch of food at once and freeze it for a later time. The concept just doesn't appeal to me....I like making new meals every night with fresh ingredients. But now that I'm a mom I can appreciate the idea! This week I made 2 freezer meals and they were both delicious. Each recipe makes enough for two small casserole dishes, so you can eat one and freeze the other!

I made Pioneer Woman's Lasagna first. It was very rich and meaty, just how Adam likes his lasagna.

Then I made my friend Jen's Mexican Casserole. Yummy! My friend Jen made this for me shortly after Ryan was born and I really appreciated the home-cooked meal.

There are tons of casserole recipes out there that are ideal for making and freezing. Some are even healthy! Here's a link to a few that I'd like to try. 10 Healthy Casseroles

What do you think? Have you ever made freezer meals?
