There have been many nights lately where I have served my family sub-par suppers because I was either gone all day and couldn’t start cooking until later or I forgot to put food in the crock pot mid-day. When I was pregnant with baby #3, I realized that cooking wasn’t going to be a priority for a few months after giving birth, but I really want to have whole meals (more than boxed dinners) for all of us even with a newborn in the house. If I was already having trouble getting meals on the table without a new baby, how would I make it happen with a new baby? 2 words–>freezer meals.
I came up with 24 Freezer Recipes + Grocery Lists to help me out. I have been able to get all 24 of these recipes ready for the freezer in just a couple of hours. When I am ready to cook, most of these meals can just be thrown in the crock pot with no other prep! A couple require the oven (like the baked pasta) and a couple just need to be thawed (like the breads), but they are all super quick fixes after the initial, also super quick, freezer prep.
You can get the full recipes & grocery lists here!
