It is always good to have a few recipes that you can whip up out of the pantry staples you already have on hand. It’s even better if those recipes also happen to be freezer friendly so that you can simply throw the ingredients together in a bag and freeze them for a later, busier day. And if the recipe happens to ALSO be a family favorite that your kids and husband just love? Well then quite frankly, that’s a recipe you just can’t live without.
