Chicken & Veggie Cacciatore, this one for Sunday dinner, plus one in a 2 pound freezer bag.

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.

MVIMG_20190913_143557

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

IMG_20190913_144759

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!

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 . . .

IMG_20190127_132452

And, plated!

IMG_20190127_140110

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

IMG_20180924_163326

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!

Freezer Meals!

As you know, we’ve been doing freezer meals for a while now. It has been the best thing ever! Now, there’s no more “oh, we forgot to check and see what we can put together for a meal, guess we’ll need to pick up fast food!” Why? because we can simply check what prepared meals are in the freezer, thaw and cook!

This is what we put together this time:

IMG_20180120_154121

We made two of each recipe for the freezer, in less than two hours of work.

Here is “The Artist” browning ground beef for the Beef Burrito Casserole, which was the only -pre-cooking needed.

IMG_20180120_121006

Shiloh thought he was going to get something, before we sent him away to play with one of the other boys!

IMG_20180120_122918

Everything is done! Nine packaged up, and one made directly in the slow cooker and put into the fridge for Sunday dinner the next day.

IMG_20180120_153131

Here are some of the meals as we’ve had them . . .

Tomorrow night, we’ll be having Baked Cream Cheese Chicken, then we’ll start the rotation over again! Sometime next week we’ll be doing another prep. Looking forward to deciding what meals to make!

This is where all of my freezer meals come from, and it’s one of the best household expenses I’ve ever made! Check it out at MyFreezeEazy, I bet you’ll love it as much as we do!
