Even if you love to cook, you have to admit that sometimes you just don’t have the energy for it. That’s especially true after a long day at work, at school, or taking care of the kids. Of course, this is when you probably order delivery or takeout and call it a day. However, if you do this on a regular basis, you’re going to be spending a lot of money you probably don’t really need to spend. So, what should you do instead? Your best bet is to cook bigger batches and then freeze them for later. Take a look at some amazing freezable meals that you can reheat in no time – dinner is served.
Slow-cooker Beef Chili
There’s so much to love about this beef chili recipe. First of all, since you cook it in a slow cooker, it requires very little work from the get-go. Just pour all of the different ingredients into your slow cooker, turn on the heat, and let it do its thing. Then, all you have to do is wait. When it’s ready, you can serve it with rice, pasta, bread – whatever you have on hand. Freeze the leftovers, and you can enjoy them another day since this chili freezes so well. Yes, this meal really does it all.
If you love pasta, then you can’t go wrong with this baked ziti. If you’ve tried to freeze pasta before, you know that it may not always go so well. But that’s certainly not the case with this baked ziti. Because you cook the pasta and then bake it, it has crispiness and a crunch that allows it to save well in the freezer. Just remember to cover it with a lot of cheese, so it’s nice and gooey when it comes out of the oven.

Turkey and Chicken Stock
Okay, this isn’t really a recipe itself, but it’s still something you should definitely keep in your refrigerator.

Instead, gather up all your bits and bobs of meat and aromatics, and make a stock that you can use later. Whatever you decide to make with it is guaranteed to be delicious.
