Yummy Freezer Meals!

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

“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!

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!

Another Set of Meals In The Freezer!

Today, we got a bunch of new meals in the freezer! “The Artist” has gone from being my helper, to pretty much doing it all, except for the shopping. Usually I do that with one of the other boys. So this time, these are the meals we made, 2 of each:

My New Instant Pot!

I received a much wanted Instant Pot for Christmas!

IMG_20190127_132430

We’ve been having fun putting up meals from My Freeze Easy, where in addition to all of the regular categories there’s now a whole category for the Instant Pot! This time around, we (The Artist and I) put only Instant Pot meals in our menu plan, so as to get used to using this brand new appliance. We’ve now served all five of the recipes we put up, and still have one of each in our freezer.

First up, in 8 minutes we did Meatballs and Marinara sauce.

Here they are, at the end of 8 minutes . . .

And, plated!

Next, we did New Brunswick Stew, which took about a half hour.

IMG_20190129_201839_1

Then, we did Chicken Cordon Bleu, cooking time about 20 minutes.

IMG_20190201_202720

Next up was French Onion Pork Chops, which were cooked in about 20 minutes.

IMG_20190208_184740

Finally, Mushroom Beef Pot roast, which took 55 minutes!

IMG_20190211_185829

This is such a great appliance! And it’s nothing like my mother’s pressure cooker, which I was always terrified of. Plus, it has other functions we haven’t even explored yet, like slowcooker, cake maker, rice cooker, steamer, food warmer, yogurt maker, sauté pan, and sterilizer. I will never use the yogurt maker. 🙂

All in all, I’m very happy with this appliance, and very glad I’ve been asking for one!

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!
