With the school year fixing to start I've been trying to make my life a little easier by making freezer meals. I saw an episode of the Pioneer Woman and just so happened she was making some Freezer Meals so it worked out perfect I added hers to mine. So I started an organized grocery list
The grocery list came from my OCD Binder
I love love love this its a life saver
After taking a day and making 4 or 5 at a time I was so over it. I figured out that for me taking a day and cooking and putting together a dozen meals in one day was not fun. The best thing to do would be to double a recipe and each night I cooked we would have one for dinner and stick one in the freezer. Now I'm going to warn you that you are going to look like its the first of the month and got your stamps reloaded. #justsayin the worst part is you grocery bill is going to double too but I bought other stuff than just stuff for freezer meals
For my Freezer Meal Storage I didn't want to pay 3bucks for 2 contains so I googled it up and found the perfect cheap website.
Day 1 Freezer Meals
Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti
I had some awesome lil chefs in training to help me on my adventure
Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti
1 Rotisserie Chicken or chicken breast (I just try to make things easier for me)
Boil noodles and while noodles are boiling I take a 1/2-3/4 block of Velveeta cheese and cut up into pieces and open a can of rotel. Then I drain the noodles but leave about 2 cups and half of water left in boiler then I add rotel, can of cream of chicken, Velveeta and chicken that I picked off. If I boil Chicken I use a cup of chicken water instead of noodle water. Once everything is mixed together I add tonys, salt & Pepper to taste. I'm not a big fan of thick dry chicken spaghetti so if it is that way I will add another can of cream of chicken or some water or chicken broth whatever I have on hand.
I have just changed things to our likings so there is no rhyme or reason why I make it like this.
More Freezer Meals:
Lasagna (I tried the oven ready noodles, hope they are ok)
3 bags frozen crawfish tails
1 can rotel
2 bags shredded Velveeta cheese
1 small bag of McKenzie frozen: Classic Sountern Seasoning Blend
1/2 stick butter
pinch of garlic
Boil noodles, while noodles is boiling sauté in butter the seasoning blend and throw in pinch of minced garlic. After sautéed add can if rotel and crawfish tails and simmer. Drain noodles and reserve 1 1/2 cups noodle water. Add noodles and noodle water to the crawfish tail mixture and stir in 2 bags of shredded Velveeta.
