*Give Me Your Freezable Dish Recipes, Puleeeze!*

Two weeks from today we will be China bound.  
It hasn't sunk in yet!

An amazing family will be moving into our oh-so-crowded home in our two-week absence.

One way I can make things a little easier for this mama is to prepare some meals for freezing.  After all, she will be feeding 18 people on a daily basis - yikes!  

And if she decides to cook fresh every day, or meals miraculously appear at our doorstep...then I'll have meals ready for the fog of jet lag :)  You know that feeling, 24 eyes staring at you, wondering what's for dinner, and you haven't even thought about it - gah!

I've started a list of dishes that freeze well...and here's where you can help!

Do you have a super-delicious recipe that I can double or triple and will freeze well?  

*hint* I'm not into complicated, fancy dishes.  We like ground beef and chicken...and ground beef...and cheese :)  I would love to try some new things though that will please a crowd!

Can't wait to see what you've got!!!!

Here is one of my families favorite recipes. You can make this and instead of cooking it freeze it after you put it together. Once you are ready to eat it take out of the freezer and bake for 1 hour at 350. I hope you like it and I hope you all have safe travels.

Enchilada Lasagna

1 16oz can enchilada sauce
1 pound ground beef
1 pack taco seasoning
1 small can of diced green chilies
1 small can of chopped black olives
4 cups of Mexican cheese
About 16 corn tortillas
Vegetable oil for frying corn tortillas
Sour cream for topping

1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Brown the ground beef and drain. Add the taco seasoning mix, ¾ cup of water, black olives, and green chilies. Cook until the water has cooked into the mixture. Turn off and let sit.
3. Put about ½ cup oil in a small fry pan. Cook corn tortillas about 10 seconds on each side. Put fried tortilla on a paper towel to drain finish the rest of the tortillas.
4. Open the can of enchilada sauce and put in a bowel or pie dish. Dip the corn tortillas in the enchilada sauce then put in a glass 8x8 baking dish. You can fit 4 tortillas on the bottom. Use about 1/3 of your meat mixture. Then sprinkle 1 cup of cheese on top of the meat mixture. Add another layer of tortillas continue until you have 3 layers of tortillas, meat, and cheese. On top of the last layer you will put another layer of tortillas and cheese. If you have any sauce left over pour over the top.
5. Bake 30 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes.

Put some sour cream on the top and enjoy.
