Last day of the week of Freezer Meals! Today we are bringing you a bonus 4th meal! Happy Friday! Come try Chicken Enchiladas, Ham and Cheese Sliders, Ginger Peach Chicken and Baked Spaghetti with Meatballs!
We have been having the goal of eating out less and cooking more! With school starting I didn’t realize how time consuming cooking dinner is and how tiring having no prep is! Now I can see why I went out to eat so much! We have saved so much money eating at home it’s ridiculous. Anyways, these meals made it easy because I actually wanted to eat them! We bought our 8×8 tins at Walmart they were 88 cents for 3. These meals are fantastic so definitely give them a try!

- 2 teaspoons ground coriander
- Label the bag.
- Put one pound of chicken in each bag. In a large bowl whisk together brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger, coriander and red onion.
- Split the soy sauce mixture between the 3 bags. Then evenly split the peaches as well.
- Seal the bag trying to get out as much air as possible.
- When ready to eat pull out the bag and allow to thaw in the fridge overnight.

- Mix butter, mustard, worcestershire sauce, poppyseeds and brown sugar into medium sauce pan.
- On medium-high heat, bring sauce to a boil and then reduce heat.
- Lightly drizzle each sandwich with the prepared sauce.
- At this point you could cover the assembled rolls up and freeze them for later use. Just let them thaw out completely before cooking.

- Pull out the chicken and shred it.
- Pour Enchilada sauce in the bottom of each of the 8×8 dishes that the tortillas and fill them with the chicken and put some cheese on top and then roll them up tight and place in the pan seam side down.
- Pour the second can of enchilada sauce over the top.
- Top with cheese. Cover with tinfoil, label and freeze.
- Pull out of the freezer the night before to thaw.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until melted and bubbly.
Baked Spaghetti (make 3-8×8 dishes)
- 2 boxes spaghetti noodles
- 1 bag frozen meatballs
- 3 jars marinara sauce
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 3 cups sour cream
- 3 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/3 cup milk
- 4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
- Lightly grease a 8×8 baking dish set aside.
- Bring a pot of well salted water to a boil. Cook noodles as package directs until al dente.
- In a bowl, combine the sour cream, egg and Parmesan cheese. Spread over the top of the spaghetti noodles. Dump a jar of marinara on top Then sprinkle on 4 cups of mozzarella cheese on top.
- Top with meatballs and remaining cheese.
- Cover with foil, label and freeze.
- Pull out the night before and allow to thaw in the fridge
- Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbly.
- If you don’t thaw it out it takes about 1 1/2 hours. After I was done I had to add more marinara because some of it soaked into the noodles.
