28 Comfort Food Freezer Meals for Busy Mums

Between working full-time, raising two boys, running a household and just being crazy busy, I don’t have time to stand in the kitchen and cook every single night.

Nope – I don’t cook during the week at all. BUT I prepare all my weekly meals, including school lunches – on a Sunday afternoon and that few hours of prep time help me keep my sanity throughout the busy week ahead.

1. Mild Lamb Curry

All curries freeze really well. In fact, curries are often tastier once they have been frozen and re-heated for dinner!

2. Porcupine Mince Balls

Porcupine Mince Balls are a great way to hide vegetables from fussy eaters. Because it is somewhat soup-like when cooked, it is easy to freeze. Just allow to cool to room temperature, then carefully (so you don’t break up the meatballs) spoon into a ziplock bag. Porcupine Mince Balls can be frozen for up to six months!

3. Bulk Spaghetti Bolognaise

You don’t just have to make Spaghetti Bolognaise with this bolognese sauce. You can use the sauce to top a baked potato with a little sour cream and cheese. It can go in tacos, in Jaffles or even on its own.  Spaghetti sauce freezes terrific for up to six months – so make a huge batch to last you for ages!

4. Chicken Cordon Bleu

Funny name – but a beautiful dish. Cordon Bleu is French for ‘Stuffed with Ham and Cheese’. You have probably seen similar versions at shops like Lenards Chicken – but they can be expensive to buy pre-made, so make them yourself at home – they are easy!
