50 Meal Marathon

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

Lately I've been lazy! I'll admit it! Homeschooling all day with a three year old and a nine month old tagging along can be crazy, and by the time my husband comes home from work, the last thing I want to do is spend about an hour in the kitchen prepping and cooking, and about an hour cleaning it up after we've all eaten. I've seen a lot of different tips and tricks on pinterest for Freezer Meals and how to stockpile your freezer, and I thought..well, why the hell not! While I was on my search for easy freezer meals I stumbled across this blog where a lady cooked 50 meals all in one day, all freezer friendly, and all of them sounded pretty delicious. I thought this would be a fun challenge for me and it would be the perfect thing to document and let you all in on! You can find the original post here.
*I changed a few things around based on my families favorite recipes and what we like.

Here are my freezer meals and the servings:

* The link I posted for the Cheesy Chicken and Hash brown casserole doesn't include chicken, and the Baked Manicotti and Cannelloni doesn't include Cannelloni ( you can find a recipe for that here )

The thought of doing this is actually a lot more horrible than it is once you get in there and do it. Time passed rather quickly for me and I grouped cooking my meals with similar ingredients so I could do multiple things at once. I cleaned up as I went along and tried to put things back once I was done with them to avoid clutter! It was also a huge help that my husband played with the kids all day so I was free to cook away!
Here are a few of my freezer meals that are prepared and cooling, getting ready for the freezer. We had the Sweet and Sour Chicken last night for dinner and when we re-heated it in the oven it was fantastic! I highly recommend doing this if you can get the time.
If you try it, let me know how it worked for you!

      P.S. I don't know if you know this, but you have CAPTCHA enabled on your blog. CAPTCHAs have gotten crazy lately and it makes it really difficult to comment. I use comment moderation, so spam doesn't get out of control. I just thought I'd let you know :)

      1. Ahh! I didn't know that. I'm going to have to change that because those captchas drive me nuts.
