More Freezer Meals!

This post may have affiliate links. You won’t spend more by using my link, and it will allow me to afford the product involved.

You all know that our family has been making meals for the freezer for over a year now. I wanted to share the most recent set we’ve done using MyFreezeasy.

Each recipe you see named above gives us 2 meals for the freezer, and we actually ended up with enough to make four of the Lazy Lasagna Bake. We used one of those for a church potluck on Sunday. 🙂

My main working partner during this process is usually “The Artist,” and one or another of his brothers goes with me to do all of the pre-prep shopping.

Here, “The Artist” and I are putting it all together . . .

 

And here, the bounty of our efforts!

  • Lazy lasagna Bake – 4
  • Chicken Fajita Bake – 2
  • Bacon Wrapped Chicken – 2
  • Sloppy Dogs (topping) – 2
  • Slow Cooker Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Plus, I now also have in the freezer a gallon freezer bag with the extra chicken in BBQ sauce! Not bad for just a couple of hours in the kitchen!

Homeschool Today . . .

Today, it’s all about History Channel, wall to wall. Each year “The Puzzler” asks if we can do this. He was only 4 months old on this day in 2011, and we wouldn’t even know him and “Mr. Loquacious” for another almost 8 years. I learn more things each year while watching these programs. I saw none of what happened when it did, with the exception of the first two planes when they hit the World Trade Center towers.

September 11, 2001:
I was in Shipshewana, IN with a group of ladies from church. It happened just as we turned on the TV to check the weather before checking out of our B & B to go to the flea market before coming home. We prayed, I remember calling my husband to tell him to turn on network TV, as I knew the TV would be on a cable kid’s channel for My then little boy’s shows he liked. I remember the sick feeling when I did, in fact, within an hour, see gas stations raising their prices up well over $6.00 per gallon, I remember the eerie feeling driving through Flint, MI, past Bishop Airport and not seeing or hearing any planes in the air. I remember getting home to Port Huron MI, and finding out the border with Sarnia was closed. What a sad and horrible day… I do remember one bright spot, all that day in Shipshewana, I witnessed complete strangers letting others use their cell phones to connect with loved ones. It was a hopeful sight…
So, it falls to us as parents to ensure that our children learn history as it actually happened. Even though none of mine were old enough to understand it as it happened, year by year, they learn more while watching these programming hours. So do I.

Meal Prep Help From “The Artist!”

“The Artist” wanted to do all of the freezer prep this time around, so after we went and bought everything, I let him! This is what went into the freezer this time:

Watch, as he is making sauces and filling containers!

 

Here is “The Artist” shredding Swiss Cheese by hand . . .

In the Slow Cooker, we have the Pork Medallions with Dijon Sauce. Since the next day was Sunday, one meal was put up for the freezer and one in the slow cooker for dinner after church.

Here are some of the meals as we’ve been having them:

Cream Cheese Pork Chops
