Preparing Food for Recovery from Surgery & Freezer Meals
Here are the recipes that I made to freeze:
Honey Garlic Chicken I'll make some rice in my rice cooker and frozen broccoli to serve with this.
Shepard's Pie This recipe even lists "freezer directions." I froze it in my 9" x 9" pyrex dish and can just pop it in the oven when ready to eat, after thawing. (This is the first thing I defrosted and it is very good! Lots of flavor!)
Slow Cooker Lentil Stew
Tortilla Soup Inspired by this recipe. I actually made this in my crock pot (those Midwestern roots run deep) and added chicken (high in protein).
I also have frozen berries, frozen bananas, frozen spinach and pomegranate juice so that I can make smoothies. I like these recipes from Whole Living Magazine.
And while I try not to use these normally, I had a good supply of paper plates and plastic cups on hand. No need to do dishes!
Yumberry Pomegranate SoBe Lifewater, lime Perrier and San Pellegrino Limonata sparkling water. Here's the recipe for my favorite mocktail. It's pretty easy. Fill a glass with ice, fill mostly with Blackberry Raspberry sparkling water and top with a splash Cran-Raspberry juice. Delish!
