I’m going to be completely honest and transparent with you all. I work full time. My husband is an airline pilot. My three kids are in kindergarten, preschool, and daycare. We have two yellow labs that are bundles of energy.
There are simply not enough hours in the day to think about what is for dinner. Enter freezer meals, my addiction to Kelly’s amazing recipes and my own creation of Time Redone. I am a HUGE fan of finding ways to save time and prepping my meals for the week saves me HOURS of time.
Last weekend, I whipped up these five freezer crockpot meals in less than an hour!
- Sweet Mustard Chicken from Busy Mommy Media
- Chicken Cacciatore
- Mexican Chili with Cornbread Topping
- Chicken Teriyaki from Hello Natural
- Honey Sesame Chicken from Damn Delicious
Now we’re stocked with healthy and homemade meals for busy weeknights.
What I love most about these meals is that they’re:
- So easy and save me a TON of time during a busy (errr, normal) week
- Delicious for the grownups and kids in our house
- Completely budget friendly – eating good doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg!
Not counting what I had on-hand, the groceries for these meals cost less than $35. So much cheaper than take-out and other convenience foods!
These meals are not only budget-friendly, but they are delicious and easy to make. I whipped up all five in less than an hour, while drinking a glass of wine (transparency, right?) and visiting with a girlfriend who was prepping her meals for the week, too.
