In my searches for recipes, the term 'Freezer Meal' seems to have many definitions. I think of a freezer meal as a dish of unbaked food tossed in a bag and placed in the freezer for later cooking and consumption. But, I find many cookbooks full of recipes of cooked meal, frozen and re-cooked. Isn't that a left over??? Below is one of those "questionable" recipes. It is delicious. To make it a Tabatha-approved recipe, I would follow the suggestions under the original recipe. This recipe was found online at http://www.30mealsinoneday.com
