Miss Frannie up to her elbows with ground beef. Do you see all the green peppers on the counter behind her?
Jaime is hiding, she didn't want me to take a photo of her. She is up to her elbows in chicken! We made chicken Parmesan and chicken fingers.
Here I am with some of my stash!! I still had trays of lasagna and baked ziti out front ready to get loaded into my car.
It was another long day of cooking. Frannie's sister-in-law, Jaime joined us this month and I think she may want to do this again! I brought 18 meals home and squeezed them all into my freezer.
This is what we made:
Chili - 6 batches (2 bags each)
Stuffed peppers - 30 (10 each)
Lasagna - 3 pans (1 pan each)
Dump lime chicken - 3 batches (1 bag each)
Dump chicken w/ veggies - 3 batches (1 bag each)
Chicken parm - 3 batches (1 bag each)
Dump swiss steak - 6 batches (2 bag each)
Beef stew - 6 batches (2 bag each)
Baked ziti - 6 pans (2 pans each)
Chicken tenders 1 bag of 25 each
garlic fries - one big bag each
So, how much did this cost???? Too much to tell you. Just kidding. We approximately spent $120 each and it breaks down to about $8.00 per meal for a family of 4!!! Try and go out to dinner and beat that!
We make the meals has healthy as possible and we even have left overs. I may use the freezer meals 3 times a week and cook the other times.
You should give it try. Its fun and ultimately saves a lot of money and time!!!
