There are two things that I make and keep in my freezer at all times. Spaghetti and a chicken stew.
I freeze the spaghetti sauce in individual Gladware cups..defrosts in about 2 minutes in the microwave, and you can do angel-hair pasta to cut down on cook time. Make extra spaghetti....it will keep about 3 days in the fridge in a zip lock bag..the next day you can take leftover pasta, add zesty italian dressing, parm cheese, BAM pasta salad. Great with garlic bread or rolls.
The chicken stew is easy: Buy a WHOLE chicken, discard entrails, cut off the legs and wings (save these in the freezer for fried chicken another day), into the crock pot...add one can of cream of chicken, one can of cream of celery, one can of water. Stir until combined, and then drop the whole chicken in. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8. Lift the chicken out and debone..shred chicken with a fork and disgard bones. Mix about 2 T of cornstarch and 1/3 cup of hot water until no lumps..gradually add about 1/2 this mixture until the "soup" left in the crockpot starts to thicken. Then add shredded chicken.
This makes about 10 serviings..yup 10 servings in individual cups. Again, thaws in 2 minutes in the microwave, spoon over minute rice or egg noodles. Really great with black pepper and a salad or rolls.
Also, I buy frozen chicken breasts from the freezer section...I pour a marinade in a zip lock bag before I leave for the day and toss one chicken breast in..by the time I get home from work it's thawed and marinated. Grill on George Forman's, fry, or grill outside, cut up over a salad, minute rice, or serve with a veggie steam pack.
I have NAILED cooking for one
