Slow Cooker Freezer Meals

Yesterday I spent the day preparing approximately 20 slow cooker meals. Well, it really wasn’t the whole day as it took me about 4 1/2 hours from start to finish.  I first placed my order at ShopRite Shop at Home and purchased everything I needed for around $100.  I used no coupons but used a coupon code for $30 off $100.

Below are all the recipes that I prepared.  I adapted family recipes and recipes I found to be able to freeze them and cook them in a slow cooker.  I’m testing these recipes to see how they turn out so if you plan on doing them, please keep that in mind.

Also, I tried to stay away from processed ingredients as much as possible so you won’t find any type of creamy soups included these recipes.

There are 10 recipes below which I doubled making 20 recipes.  The recipe does not show them as doubled but the list of ingredients I provided  are for doubling all 10 recipes.  These recipes should feed a family of 4 however, when I made them yesterday, I noticed that I would probably need to cook both bags for a couple of them, Chicken Cacciatore and the Lemony Garlic Chicken.  That would really determine how much your family eats.

I hope you enjoy these recipes.  Not only is it such a time saver, it saves so much money on last minute take out. How nice is it to wake up in the morning and dump it into the crockpot, arrive home at night and dinner is done.

Tips:

  • Make sure to use good quality freezer bags
  • Use a sharpie to label bags
  • Add any additional cooking instructions to the bag so you don’t have to refer back to the recipe
  • If you are interested in the storage bag holders you can check them out here
  • Label all your bags before you begin
  • Cut like items together and fill them into the recipe bags

Note prices below are from ShopRite based on sales the week of 10/25/15.  These items can be purchased anywhere at any time.
