The product of our labor!

We also had enough bones with extra meat and skin from the rotisserie chickens to make chicken stock, which is going right now in my 6 quart slow cooker!

The bounty of our hard work . . .

IMG_20191022_170625

And last night after all this work, we cooked and ate for supper one of the Burrito Pie meals!

We use my membership to My Freeze Easy to create our menus, and it has been the best money I’ve ever spent, when it comes to our food budget! We have so much more variety, and with shopping and prepping a couple times a month, we have freash meals in the freezer, just waiting to thaw and cook.  My crew really likes it, and there have only been a few things they didn’t care for. They help me decide which recipes to put into our menu, now!

Yummy Freezer Meals!

Today, “The Artist” and I put together 11 meals for the freezer!

IMG_20190913_115703

“The Artist” is making the Baked Apricot Meatballs, while I make the sauce to put on them.

Here, we have the really good smelling topping to add into the Baked Cinnamon-Apple Pork Chops. I wish you could smell this, instead of just seeing it, because it just smells so yummy, and I’m sure it’s going to smell even better baking in the oven!

IMG_20190913_132158

This is all 10 of the meals from the recipes above, 2 of each, plus a package made using the extra pork chops and Vidalia Vinaigrette, so a total of 11 meals.

And finally, 11 new supper main dishes in the freezer to add to whatever meals were left from the last time we did this!

We have a membership with My Freeze Easy, and every few weeks I just go in and create my own menu plan, but you don’t have to. Each monty there are 12 new menus to choose from. Each recipe will make 2 meals for the freezer, and we chose to use 5 recipes this time. I also set my meal portions per meal at 8 so there will be leftovers, often enough for a second supper the next day! If you click the link earlier in this paragraph (affiliate) You’ll find the join page, and also a “try it free!” click at the top. We have been using and loving this for almost 3 years now, and my crew loves it! We get so much more variety now, and I never have to worry about having something already prepped to just thaw and bake, slow cook, Instant Pot, or skillet! Another reason I started doing this is that I’m part of the “Care Bear” ministry in our church (Mesa Baptist Church). I never have to say no anymore, because there are always good meals in my freezer, which enables me to do a meal for someone in need wil very little notice. I like that!

What’s cooking at Our House!

Since, it’s been a bit since I wrote about our freezer menu plans, so I thought we’d do that today! Tuesday, “The Artist” & “The Puzzler” helped a LOT! We chose seven recipes this time, because we just couldn’t cut it down to five as we liked the sound of all these meals!

meals 6.13.19

We did our shopping on Monday, then worked on 5 of the recipes Thursday. We had to do the 2 burger recipes yesterday because an ingredient which was to be kept in the refridgerator got put in the pantry and I had to go shopping to repace it, so we ran out of time.

Here are just 3 of the meals, getting prepped to go in the freezer! We have:

Crispy Chedder Chicken Bake

meals 1 6.13.19

Grilled Pork Chops, Peaches & Red Onions

meals 3 6.13.19

And Bacon Wrapped Chicken

meals 2 6.13.19

Unfortunately, the pictures I took of the other meals being prepped didn’t come out, but boy, do they look good!

Here are the finished meals (14 of them!), ready for the freezer!

You can do this too, it’s so easy! We use My Freeze Easy, a wonderful website where you can use their pre-set menus each month, swap out recipes, or even create your own menu. This is my affiliate link. At the top of the page,  there is a click to try a free menu.

This is bar none, the best money I’ve ever spent for our food budget!

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.

IMG_20180924_153811

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!
