Meals that Freeze

Barbara and I have met and planned out our menu of freezer foods. Each of these recipes will be made four times. I'll have two of each meal and Barb will divide hers into 4 of each because her family is smaller. So I'll end up with 16 meals and she will have 32. This will work out well since she'll be having a baby soon. Here's the list:

Stuffed shells
Chicken broccoli braid
Pulled pork barbecue
Tamale Pie
Fajita Chicken
Poor Man's Steak
Creamy Tomato pasta sauce
Taco Meat

We're trying to keep it simple and invest our time in making meals that we know the family will eat. We made a master grocery shopping list and have about 2 weeks to pick up some good deals. Hopefully chicken will go back on sale soon. Last month chicken breasts were only $1.67 a pound- an all-time low. I should have picked up more.

Stayed tuned for these recipes and freezing/thawing instructions!!

Please share: If you freezer cook, what are some of your favorite and faithful meals to have on hand? Care to share the recipe with us?

Oh, I'm jealous! I don't know what's better, having a freezer full of prepared meals or the fun time spent with friends making them!
We like to freeze:
Chicken and Bean Casserole
Homemade frozen pizzas
Veggie Soup

Thanks for this! I am seriously considering starting a Dinner Swap with a group of ladies, and your posting was so timely. Would love if you could share some of these recipes.

The meatballs at GFS were always a winner and very versatile.

I would really appreciate your input on what your top 10 fears are. I am seeking info for a book I am writing on overcoming fear.
Thank you

I'm so jealous that you get to do this with a friend. I am considering asking a couple of friends to do this with me. Any helpful tips would be welcome!
