Make Ahead Meals - Meatloaf

Hi Everyone...
Well this is a different post for me.  Recently I have become very interested in make ahead meals.  Today was my first batch and I'm excited to try it and I hope it freezes well.  Any and all suggestions would be appreciated.  This is the Quaker Oats recipe for meatloaf.  I'm not 100% how long it should stay in the freezer but I'm just going on what I feel is best and we plan to eat it within 6 weeks.  If you know a good website or any different information, please let me know....

Recipe: This recipe is for 2 lbs but I made 3 lbs so this is my modified version...
3 lbs ground beef (mine is 98% lean)
1 c. ketchup
1 c.. Quaker Oats
3/4 c. chopped onion (I get the chopped onion from the freezer section, much easier)
2 lrg eggs, beaten (I only used about 3/4 of the beaten egg)
1 1/2 T. Worcestershire sauce

I mixed all the ingredients, flattened the mixture to about an inch thickness and cute into about 3 - 4 inch squares.  Then I scooped each piece up with a spatula and put them in individual freezer bags.
Here is a picture of the process.  Hope you enjoy.
