Wouldn't it be great to have bags of crockpot-ready veggies and meat stashed in your freezer?
Crockpot freezer meals seem to be one of the latest trends. They're popping up all over the Internet, including on my favorite site, Pinterest. My friend, Tracy, was inspired to get a small group together and make a batch of freezer meals to share.
We each picked a crockpot freezer recipe that we found on the Internet. We bought enough ingredients to make four bags of our chosen recipe. Then, we met two nights ago to chop, dice, cook, chit-chat and stuff freezer bags with a meal's worth of food.
When all the bags were filled, the three of us exchanged bags, so we each ended up with three different freezer meals. We all made an extra to give to a friend who was expecting a baby any day. She's since given birth (Yay!), so I'm sure these freezer meals will be very welcome.
here and here.
At the end of the night, we'd declared the experiment a success and planned to meet again in roughly two weeks for more of the same.
I love the idea so much, I'm going to make several freezer meals on my own in the next week or two. I'm itching to try this spinach, bacon and feta stuffed chicken recipe.
Do you make freezer meals?
