Dinner is in the Freezer!

Now that classes have begun, I will be burying my face in textbooks until December.  So, I began freezing homemade meals for two people.  I really want to reduce the amount of time and money we spend on pre-packaged, processed, frozen dinners, and going out to eat.  I want healthier, home-cooked food for me and my family.  Since I won’t be able to cook a good dinner for us every night.  I wanted to start stock-piling a nice variety of homemade, home-cooked frozen dinners for us all.

Tonight I started with lasagna!  I found little aluminum trays with lids at Kroger.  They’re the perfect size for small lasagnas.  I didn’t want to mess with lasagna noodles.  Instead, I wanted to use up the penne pasta I had in my pantry.  I cooked ground beef and sausage.  Bought some mozzarella and ricotta cheese.  3 jars of spaghetti sauce.  And I went to work!

 

This is the perfect size for me, and Aaron!  Nice cardboard lids, too, for stacking them in the freezer.

Into the freezer it goes!  I made FIVE lasagnas!  This will be perfect for the chilly autumn nights to come!  Good food for the family!  Quick and easy!… and back to studying I go!
