What frozen snacks work well for the office breakroom?
While meal planning, don't forget you can stock up for snack attacks at the office. Whether there's no time for breakfast or you're trying to beat the afternoon slump, keeping backup frozen food in the freezer for emergencies can be your saving grace. You can choose from selections like instant stir fry, pasta and pizza that are easy to prepare in the microwave, and frozen treats like fruit and ice-cream bars for satisfying your sweet tooth after long, hot days spent outdoors on the job. If you're preparing for the company barbecue, try frozen chicken tenders, veggie burgers and French fries to feed hungry guests. And don’t forget to add paper products and cookware to your list—you may want these items later to help make your office event go smoothly as well.
How long can food stay in the freezer?
While preparing to stock up on frozen goods, keep tabs on recommended expiration dates and freeze dates. When was the last time you dug into the ice-cold depths of your freezer? If you buy go-to snacks and want to avoid freezer burn (and the resulting disappointment when you're hungry), rotate often and date them before storing them away. You can enjoy your selection better when the color, flavor and texture of your frozen meals are as close in quality as they day you chose them.
