I know you have seen the post about salads in a mason jar a thousand times already but this one is a little different. I tried the #Salads In A Jar the way others said to and no matter how many days they sat in the jars (1-6), they were still soggy. Even on day 1. I figured I better share how the salads in a jar worked best for me… let me know if you have other tips to make them even better.
Do you like# burritos? You will love this #recipe and how much time it saves you! Beef and cheddar burritos made ahead and put in the freezer are the way to go! I made these when I made the other meals in the Crockpot Freezer Series and we had them for the first time last night. They are not a crockpot meal but they do go in the freezer. The trick is wrapping them in both the paper towel and aluminum. They were delicious and fresh!
YUM AGAIN! My family is crazy about a ranch chicken crockpot recipe I make and I was surprised at how similar this creamy italian chicken crockpot recipe tasted to that. They said they like them the same so my choice is this one. Less ingredients, less prep and I can make it ahead as part of the freezer recipe series. If you haven’t caught that series, you can get it here.
I loved making this Cilantro Lime #Chicken #Crockpot recipe because of the lime fragrance. Lemons and limes are so refreshing. I squeezed the lime in to my freezer bag when I prepared it and threw the peeling in my garbage disposal. It’s a great way to freshen it up! I had my chicken over rice and Bill had his in a wrap. We both thought it was delicious!
Here’s a speedy way to use up #zucchini and pack some nutrients into a yummy meal. I made this for breakfast, but it would be delicious for any time of day. It could be the entire meal or a side dish. I think it would be fun to cook this over an open fire pit sometime!
A frittata is an Italian dish made with fried beaten, or whipped, eggs and resembles a Spanish omelet.
Do you have #zucchini coming out of your ears? If you have a garden and it’s harvest time, then I’m sure the answer is yes! Every year my mother gives away tons and tons of zucchini to neighbors and friends. Even though she freezes, bakes and practically bathes in it, there is always MORE! For some reason, I can’t grow zucchini (the last 2 years) but luckily Emily can and we visited last week. Let the zucchini harvest games begin!
Banana bread is an easy bread that freezes well for future use. I cut wax paper and place between the slices of bread. Then we can grab a piece out of the freezer and thaw without it sticking together. Mmmm, it’s the perfect breakfast for school mornings!
This slow cooker recipe for Feta and Bacon Stuffed Chicken is one of my favorite in the crockpot freezer meal series! I love all 4 ingredients and it’s so easy to make.
This stuffed pepper recipe for the #crockpot is different than the one I normally make. I like that you use cauliflower in place of rice. And I really like you can make a bunch of them for freezer meals and pop in the crockpot! You don’t even have to defrost them first!
Who doesn’t love spaghetti!?! It’s the American food of choice and having this easy crockpot spaghetti sauce on hand in the freezer makes our fa[mily happy! I’m sure it will make yours happy too!
When Bill went to Ireland, he knew I was making the crockpot freezer menu. I asked him which meal he wanted me to take out and cook for his return. Utlimate Beef Stroganoff Crockpot is the one he picked. Great choice Bill! I love that man. He knows I’m not a fan of mushrooms so he told me to make it without. Yeeha!
We’ve all been seeing the buzz on Pinterest and Facebook about Crockpot meals for the freezer and how you can make a bunch of them all at once to save time and money. The organization of it is what set me up for the challenge. Bill is off to Ireland this month so I have extra time on my hands. Upfront these are the points I learned from my easy crockpot meals for the freezer: [Read more…]
Before you discount this Zucchini Pizza Crust recipe as too “green” or healthy, it’s a fantastic way to enjoy pizza without the heavy feeling. AND a great way to use up some zucchini. If you have a garden or know someone who does, then you know what happens when you grow zucchini or summer squash! [Read more…]
Ever get super excited to invite friends for lunch and then be stumped on what to feed them? Here’s the answer: CRUSTLESS QUICHE! Mine is made without crust, as I try to limit wheat. I used the last of my asparagus and one lonely leek and some chicken. It was a crowd pleaser.
