Frozen Meals

I’m lazy.

Really lazy. So in order to feed my need of being lazy, especially with the really yucky schedule I’m on, I do things like cook for an army.

Lots 'O Tortillas

No really, I’m lazy. Cooking for an army during the weekend helps me during the week.

Filling Tortillas

I make mass meals that I can freeze for lunches during the week. This way I don’t have to get up so early during the week to make lunches. Plus there are only so many times that a cold sandwich can feed that gnawing pit of a stomach without getting boring.

Waiting Containers

So a few years ago I decided that I can put my inability to cook for just two people to my advantage and to start making things I knew would freeze well. One of the favorites in our household is enchiladas (in this case they are sour cream and chicken enchiladas). Cheese or chicken doesn’t matter, but it makes quite a nice complete meal with rice or beans (in this case a Spanish rice I’m trying).

Holy Crap, Thats A Lot Of Food

I mean who wouldn’t want to have a nice filling lunch in their busy day in the middle of a cubical jungle?

I generally try to make sure I always have a lunch labeled, ready and available for every day of the week for my husband and I. Sometimes I don’t get to it, but I do try hard to.

Pefect Homemade Meal

I am the queen of frozen lunches.

I think I need a scepter.


  • that looks absolutely delicious… and a great idea for lunches! i’ve been needing to start taking lunch with me to work, but never seem to have enough time in the morning. i’ll have to give these a try, thanks for the idea 🙂

  • I think a lot of people are in the same boat. Needing to take a lunch but no time. It does take a little more time to make a big meal then just dinner, but at least that small amount of extra time will make a difference during the week.

    Glad I could help you with an idea! 🙂

  • Man, this is smart! Unfortunately I just moved to a tiny apartment that has a similarly tiny refridgerator/freezer.

  • True, but you can also make things ahead that are small and can fit into little crevices. Like single serving bags of rice or pasta. You can still cook in bulk but just figure out the smallest container you can fit stuff in.
