I’m not a big fan of freezing cooked food. I have done it, but most of the time I don’t like the results. There is always extra lasagna but it gets dried out when its thawed and reheated. We have successfully frozen and reheated curries and pasta sauce, but thats about it.
However, Lisa (http://www.frannykatescreativestate.blogspot.com/) introduced me to the idea of freezing raw, but prepared meals. For example, I could make hamburgers, meatballs, marinated chicken etc and then freeze it, so all I have to do it cook it. Now admittedly, making meatballs isn’t that time consuming, but with two kids and after-school activities, there are days when I don’t have time to make anything unless I am super organised (and, as much as I’d like to be, I’m not always …) so the idea of grabbing some marinated chicken out of the freezer appealed to me.
So, here begins the experiment with frozen, raw meals. Today I made this : http://jugglingmum.blogspot.com/2008/07/grilled-roasted-garlic-teriyaki-chicken.html and froze the results. I’ll see how it goes !
