A member of our family recently went through some pretty major surgery that will leave them without much mobility for quite some time. Unfortunately they don’t live close enough for us to visit frequently so I wanted to make sure they were well taken care of even if we can’t pop in every other day. I found a fantastic blog post that prepares you to make 4 wonderful crock-pot dishes that are frozen ahead of time. Each recipe is divided into two-serving portions that are placed into gallon bags and frozen. All you have to do to prepare them is pull out of the freezer the night before and let thaw in the fridge. Then put them in the crock-pot and leave it be! So easy to prep and so easy to prepare. Since our family member lives in a two-person household there will be eight meals ready to go for them.
To make things even easier I wrote down all the instructions on each bag. I also cooked a bunch of rice, portioned it out into ziplock bags and stuck them in the freezer as well.
The meals are:
- Savory Vegetable Beef Soup
- Teriyaki Chicken
- Healthy BBQ Chicken
- Stephanie’s Goulash
And they can be found here. I didn’t make the pot roast but it looks yummy as well!
Next thing I need to do is make these meals for our family!
