Mac & Cheese Freeze!

(Originally posted on August, 24, 2011)

A few weeks ago, I was in the mood to start making meals to freeze and then heat up when the weather starts getting nippier.  I had already made and froze a batch of soup, so this time, I thought that I would make some macaroni & cheese.

I have my mac & cheese (actually I multiplied the recipe by 4, and if I do that again, I’ll need to use a larger cooking pot).

And I have my quart sized freezer bags………….

Measure out the amount that you think you’ll need (I have a teenage son, who is never full, so I pack about 2.5-3 Cups per bag).

This part is a tad messy.  If you need to spoon it into the bag, I won’t disown you!  Please remember to wipe off the edge of the “zipper” before closing the bag.

Don’t forget to label & date it (even though by looking at it, you obviously know what it is, and because of that, it will probably  be on the dinner table within a week).

Lay them flat in the freezer until they’re nice and solid….

Once frozen, they stack or “stand” nicely in the freezer.  I guess you could say that this meal stands on it’s own!  Haha!

It turned out to be rather handy for me to have done this when I did, because while I was recovering from surgery, the kids were craving some mac & cheese and all I had to do was get a couple of packets out of the freezer to defrost, transfer to a baking dish and heat.

Happy Freezing!
