Holiday nights can get crazy busy. I don’t know about you, but the last thing I want to do after a long day of holiday planning is to cook a meal. There are so many other things going on during the holidays that meal planning often takes a backseat to all of the other stuff. But our family’s have to eat, right?

The conclusion I’ve come to is that I need to load my freezer up with homemade meals. Taking the time now to load your freezer up with some of your family’s favorite meals is the perfect solution to reduce holiday meal time stress.
The way I plan on doing this is by making a double batch of some of my family’s favorite comfort foods. One batch to eat and one batch to freeze.
Here are 3 of my family’s favorite comfort foods that are also easy to freeze!
1. Freezer-to-Oven Macaroni and Cheese
This freezer-to-oven Macaroni and Cheese recipe will please even the pickiest of eaters. Just pop it in the oven and enjoy!

If freezer meal cooking is something you’d like to do but haven’t felt the motivation to do yet. I invite you to join me next week for the “Make One. Freeze One.” challenge.
It’s a terrific idea and a great motivator to get your freezer loaded with meals for the holidays.
Here’s how the challenge works:
- Step One: Pick Your Meal Plan – You choose one of four meals plans: a Traditional Plan, a Slow Cooker Plan, a Ground Beef Plan, and a Clean Eats Plan (also gluten-free).
- Step Two: Go Grocery Shopping Using the Shopping List provided by MyFreezEasy
- Step Three: Each day for 5 days starting 10/24, Make One Meal, Freeze One Meal
That’s it! I hope you’ll join me.
