Renewed Commitment to Meal Planning: Freezer Cooking Session
After January’s crazy month of illness, I have a renewed commitment to meal planning, prepping ahead, and keeping pantry and freezer stocked and ready for the unexpected. When life takes an unplanned turn, it’s a blessing to be able to have meals at hand without thought and effort.
In the interest of efficiency, better health, and wise financial stewardship, I’m ramping up my planning efforts. I’ve decided to head into February with a Freezer-to-crockpot chicken dinner bulk-cooking session. I’ll be prepping double quantities of four chicken recipes on Wednesday, January 31 on Facebook live at noon central time. If you’d like to join me, here are the recipes and grocery lists I’ll be prepping:
Slow Cooker Green Salsa Chicken (purchase double quantities of all ingredients)
Red Pepper Chicken
Orange Ginger Chicken
Lemon Pepper Chicken
Make sure you have 8 gallon size freezer bags
I like this slow cooker…someday I’ll share the stories of why I prefer a slow cooker with a lid that clamps down securely.
