I'm so glad that you came back to visit me here on the blog! Are you following me on Facebook
Having a large family, one of my main goals in order for my week to go smoothly is to plan my meals ahead….and to make them easy for me to complete without a lot of time and effort! I need to work on the rest of my weekly goals, but for now, meal planning it is!!
That is why I came up with a weekly meal plan where I can get it all mostly ready at once…freezing ingredients together. The night before, I can just toss it in the fridge to thaw and then first thing in the morning, it goes into the crockpot for a delicious meal at supper! Here’s what we’ll be eating, almost completely using crockpot meals. If you missed Week one, you should see that here.
Slow Cooker Pizza
Chicken Pot Pie
Chicken & Dumplings
4.5 pounds of frozen chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)
4 pounds of ground beef
3 pounds beef stew
1 pound of carrots
1 can refrigerated biscuits
10 oz moz cheese shredded
10 oz cheddar shredded
3 16 oz bag frozen mixed vegetables
2 10 oz packages of peas and pearl onions
1 bag hash browned potatoes
2 9” deep dish pie crusts (i find in freezer section)
2 9” pie crusts (refrigerator section, for top)
4 cans cream-of-chicken soup
3 cans diced tomatoes
1 10.75 o can beef consommé
1 can green beans, drained
1 can kidney beans
1 can white beans
2 cans of beef broth
red wine vinegar
32 oz spaghetti sauce
16.5 oz jar pasta sauce
box of rigatoni
1/2 c dry pasta (your lfavorite…or use what’s in your cabinet)
Here’s how to put it all together!
Brown ground beef (all but 1.5 pounds for meat loaf)
Boil 3 chicken breasts and chop or shred for pot pies
Chop onions, green peppers, 3 large carrots + 1 cup of carrots (not sure of how many that is) and 2 celery stalks.
Assemble all the ingredients to each recipe individually in freezer bags or containers. Try to thaw out in the refrigerator the night before. If you forget to thaw it out, if you can get it in your crockpot (due the the shape), still throw it in, just put it on high for a while at first. Enjoy!
I would appreciate any feedback you have to offer. If there’s anything I’ve missed or need to add, let me know!
