I got crazy yesterday and made 17 Freezer meals! Summer is coming, and I want to spend less time in the kitchen. So, I attempted one weeks worth of freezer meals and my pile just kept growing and growing. What I love about this idea is without worrying about a meal, I can spend more time preparing salads and vegetables to eat with the meal. My dinners averaged about $5 per dinner, a little less for some.
I probably won’t want to do all the meals in one day again. So my plan is to eat 3 or 4 of them a week. Then one or two days a week I’m going to make a double dinner and freeze the other pan for later. Then I can keep replenishing the freezer supply. And then 1 day a week I am reserving as beans and rice night. I really want to start cooking with beans for the cost and the health of it. Plus we have 50 pounds of dried pinto beans for our food storage. I need to start cooking with them. So if you have any good bean recipes, please post.
Here are the meals I made:
2 Beef and Broccoli
2 Taco Soup
1 sloppy joe
2 Sweet Pork for burritos
1 bag plain chicken
24 Chicken Pillows
1 Bag Hawaiian Chicken
2 Pans Spinach and chicken Manicotti
1 Chicken pot Pie (just the filling because my pie crust did not hold together.)
