Freezer Meal Swap

This past weekend we had a freezer meal swap.  2 of my friends are having babies, and 1 is moving, so I thought it would be a good idea for them to have some meals, and hey, the rest of us benefit too! We did a soup swap last winter, and it was a huge hit. I hope we will all enjoy this one as well!

I sent out a short emails with the details:

1. Make 6 meals.  Keep 1 at home, we will not be taste testing this round.
2. Be sure to label them and have them frozen with serving/cooking directions.
3. You can make soup, casserole, marinated chicken, etc.
4. Keep it simple to heat up and prepare- we want the mommas to be able to just throw it in the oven/microwave!
5. Please reply all what you are making, so we don't have duplicates.
6. Bring a cooler/bag to bring your items home in.

My thoughts behind this-- (family that is moving), you can use these as your last few meals, so you can pack away cooking stuff and live off paper plates! Mommas- with 1 or 2 little ones running around after the baby girls arrive, we want you to be able to throw something in the oven and have a good meal! Please send request of things you like/don't like. Everyone else, just gets some bonus meals! :) Participation is optional, but I thought it would be fun!

We ended up with:
  • lasagna
  • baked pasta
  • bean burritos
  • turkey pot pies
  • healthy chicken Parmesan with quinoa
  • breakfast casserole

  1. Thanks again for organizing. Too bad we've already ate two of our meals :)
