I LOVE freezer meals!! When sport practices and games start it gets a little crazy around here. Our boys play basketball, football, and baseball. We usually have 3, sometimes 4 different teams!! That means a lot of running throughout the week for this mama and with a toddler it can become a nightmare around supper time!! My freezer meals were used during basketball and now baseball has started so it’s time to replenish my stock. I made my Aldi run Saturday morning and spent a little over $100.00 on these meals. I was able to make 9 family meals and 3 Keto meals (for Brian). It took about 3 hours…..but the payoff in the end is well worth it. SANITY!!!!!!! heheheheh Here is a list of the meals I made.
Veggie Soup, Pork Chops and Veggies, Chicken Fajitas, Chicken Spinach Lasagna (2), Cheesy Chicken Potato Casserole, Taco Meat, Grilled Chicken Breast (for wraps and salads), and Spaghetti sauce with cooked hamburger. The Keto meals were Chicken Spinach Lasagna (with Zucchini instead of noodles), Cauliflower Cheesy Chicken Bake, and Chicken Asparagus Mushroom Alfredo.
I will share the recipes, just give me time to post….I’m a busy girl right now! Hahaha. However, there are super easy ways to start filling your freezer today! When you cook hamburger, make extra! It’s always nice to have browned hamburger in the freezer for being one step ahead of a meal. You can add spaghetti sauce to it or taco seasoning. These are perfect for crock pots!! Just make sure to add a little water to the taco meat so it doesn’t burn in the crock pot 😉. Cooking a pot of chili or veggie soup??? Make a double batch and freeze what you don’t use. Same for grilled chicken! I love having grilled chicken in freezer bags for salads and chicken tortilla wraps!
I hope I have encouraged any of you busy moms to start filling your freezers! You don’t have to do it all at once so don’t feel overwhelmed! Just take it one meal at a time and enjoy the feeling of accomplishment when you open the freezer. You can do it 👍. Isn’t it funny what us moms find exciting!!!??? Hahaha
