I don’t know about you guys, but school gets nuts! Being a teacher, I come home and still have grading to complete so it’s nice to have dinner mostly ready to go. Matt is in school and is constantly hungry when he gets home and we are just so busy that last year we would go out to eat almost 4 or 5 times a week to avoid tons of dishes and having to make dinner. As you know, that’s not so healthy and not very cost effective! We were spending way too much on food.
I came up with 15 simple crockpot freezer meals that are really good! When we went shopping we averaged it out and we spent about $13 per meal. Each meal feeds approximately 4 to 6 people, depending on age and what not! I thought that was a great price. This way Matt and I have leftovers for the next days lunch or for the weekend. We’ve been cooking them for about a week and a half now and it has been worth the time and effort I put in on the Saturday I did this. I spent about 2 hours shopping, all the meat at Costco and the rest at Walmart. Once I got home it took me about 2 and 1/2 hours to put the meals together.
My plan is to post 3 recipes a day if you don’t want to do all 15 at once and then on Saturday I will post a shopping list for all 15 recipes so you can do what I did! These recipes below were awesome!! Give them a try!!
