My husband does most of the cooking - and is so good at it! But, I do like to contribute every now and then. I stumbled across a few "freezer to crock pot" recipes which I thought would be great to prep and have ready to go. One pot meals are my specialty! I love the ease of making and cleaning up these types of meals.
I made 11 meals total, spent about $130, and about 3 hrs prepping. All of the freezer bags have the cooking instructions written on them.
Our deep freezer now has a stock of dinners all ready to go. It was exhausting and a bit overwhelming, but I feel quite accomplished at having completed this task.
Just Google "Freezer to Crockpot" or do a search on Pinterest. There is no shortage of recipe ideas.
The only thing I would change when doing this next time, is to find 4 good recipes and make 3 of each. That way, you can have 3 freezer bags open and add the ingredients for that 1 recipe to each rather than going from start to finish for each one. I think that would cut your time in half or more.
