Frozen

Okay so one of my goals when I became a stay-at-home mama was to be on my shit when it came to meal planning.  And I gotta say…I have been on my shit.  I am obsessed with make-ahead freezer meals.  It makes life so easy and convenient and we have saved a ton of money in the process.  Basically I spend a ton of time browsing the internets for awesome freezer crock pot meal plans and go from there.  I am trying to choose healthy options for us which means I buy, like, 24 chicken breasts every time I hit the grocery store.  But recently I have been mixing it up with meatballs and soup.  What can I say..I like livin’ on the edge.

The photo above shows the results of my most recent freezer meal adventure.  Shopping on Sunday, assembly on Monday.  All of the recipes came from this post at Our Jolly Life.  I made everything except the Butter Chicken (I did Maple Dijon Glazed Chicken and Orange Chicken instead) and the Jambalaya…we bought the pre-made mix instead of doing it from scratch.  Total fail, I know.  I also made Mandy’s Big Mess, a sausage, pepper, and pineapple concoction that you can find the recipe for here.  I also made a couple dozen freezer biscuits using this recipe – I figure they are good to have on hand for weekend breakfasts or to go with dinner soups.  So that’s that.  We are all stocked up for another week and a half or so.  It’s silly, but I am so much more relaxed knowing dinner’s ready to go every night and all I have to do is whip up a salad or steam some veggies.  It.  Is.  Awesome.
