I love having freezer meals. When my dad visits he always makes up a bunch of meals to put in my freezer. Oh terribly busy days I just take one out in the morning and have a wonderful meal ready to pop in the oven for dinner. I love the simplicity of it. I love that I don't have to clean up a kitchen and can spend my time doing something with the kids (usually running them to an activity) With that in mind....my sister sent me a collection of freezer meals. The meals come complete with a shopping list and a prep list. The prep list tells me everything I need to do...like chop onions for meals #1 and #3 and dice tomatoes for meal #5 or whatever the meals call for. I got 10 chicken recipes, 5 steak recipes, 10 ground beef recipes. I am planning an all day cooking fest to try out these recipes. Anyone interested in cooking the day away with me is welcome. I haven't decided a date so I am open to suggestions. I figure cooking 40 chicken breasts is just as easy as cooking 20, and it would be a lot more fun to do it with friends! Some of the yummy sounding recipes are: chicken parmesan, mediterranean chicken, blackberry balsalmic chicken, orange thyme crockpot chicken and fajita burgers! Let me know if you are interested!
