New Year! It’s time for a new homecooked meal strategy (or implementing one I know has worked for us in the past!). One of the ways I like to stay on track with family meals, instead of eating out or making completely unhealthy choices, is by preparing Freezer Meals. By creating a monthly freezer meal workshop, we are not prepping EVERY meal for the month, but we are starting a prepped meal stock in our freezer. We invite you to join in and prep along with us or do it at a later date.
When preparing meals ahead to freeze we often think of meat, stews, pasta or soups. One of my favourite foods to have prepped is twice baked potatoes. This recipe for Twice Baked Enchilada Sweet Potatoes is even better. It can be served as the main course, or as a side to other veggies or meat. … Read more
Last night on the “In The Kitchen ” Facebook live, I prepped Homemade Hot Pockets and Beefy Quesadillas.
Hot Pockets are a great option for work and school lunches or even packed up for a road trip. You will need a few hours to make and prep these, but over an hour of that time is allowing the dough to rise, giving you time to prep other meals or the fillings for the hot pockets.
This week on Sunday Night Live, over on our Facebook page, I shared two Chicken Dump Freezer Meal Recipes.
Dump recipes are simple and easy to assemble freezer meal. Simply label your freezer bags with the recipe name and any cooking instructions.
Don’t you just love good comfort food? Pasta casseroles are one of my fave comfort foods.
Tuna Casserole is quick to make and includes ingredients you likely already have on hand.
This casserole can be mixed up and baked for tonight’s supper, or frozen in a freezer bag to prepare another evening.
Tomorrow night on my Facebook Page, I will be prepping the four freezer meals below. I invite you to prep these meals with me. (The Facebook Video, from Oct 2017, is at the bottom of this post)
Below you will find the ingredients for each recipe. They are all to feed 4 to 6 people (if you have young children you will get 6 servings). I will be prepping 2 meals for each recipe. It is more efficient to prep more than one of the same meal.
Freeze Ahead Breakfast Options to make your morning run smoother! If you do not do any meal prep or freezer meals yet, then start with breakfast. Morning can be hectic and stressful in a household with kids or even on your own. When we have breakfast options ready to pop in the microwave or blender, … Read more
