Freezer Meals!

EDIT: After years of trying out different freezer meals, I put together my absolute favorites and some tips in an updated post here: 13 of the Best Freezer Meals. Be sure to check it out! 🙂

Every Tuesday night our besties get together for dinner. Afterward the boys go play basketball while the girls hang out. Last night we decided to use that hang out time to make freezer meals! We’ve done this once before and it was lots of fun. I forgot to take pictures while we were doing the process, but I do have a shot of everything I brought home! 🙂

Twice baked potatoes, Cilantro Lime Chicken Tacos, Balsamic Chicken, Spaghetti Sauce, Meatballs and Sauce, Baked Ziti, Chicken Cattiatore, Gumbo, and Veggie Delight! $50/9 different meals = $5.55. And really even cheaper because it’s not like we will eat all of any of these the first time. Most all of them will be at least 2 meals for us if not more (depending on who all we are feeding)!

And remember… these are FREEZER meals! That means that they are ultra convenient! (1) remove from freezer. (2) put in crock pot (preferably with crock pot liner for quick clean up). (3) turn on. (4) come home and FEAST! 😀 The baked ziti and twice baked potatoes are the only ones that need to go in the oven (though that’s easy peasy too: 350-375 for 45 minutes to an hour. 🙂

I love freezer meals. They make my life so much easier. 🙂

  5. I love that you make your own freezer meals. I should really start doing this because there are some nights that I just don’t feel like cooking.

  6. How smart! I need to do this. I’m really bad about shopping and convince myself I’m saving money by buying one meal at a time. And also putting 5 dollars in my gas tank at a time. And coming back daily. Lol.
    The food looks amazing! (even in baggies!)
