Dinner Last Night ~ Chicken Stuffing Casserole

Last night I made one of our favorite meals for dinner, Chicken Stuffing Casserole. I used leftover rotisserie chicken that I had used for the Chicken Pot Pie. There are a bunch of coupons available for the ingredients used in the casserole recipe this time of year.

Here’s one for the soup.

Man Pleasing Chicken…YUM!

Man Pleasing Chicken

So, in researching recipes for my crock pot freezer cooking session, I came across this recipe for Man Pleasing Chicken. The name alone made me want to try it. I quadrupled the recipe cooked up one meal for dinner last night and packaged the rest for the freezer.

Here’s what we had for dinner tonight, Healthy Sloppy Joes.

It’s so hot out that no one feels like eating much. I also don’t feel like cooking in a hot kitchen, so we’re taking advantage of our freezer cooking meals. This recipe for Healthy Sloppy Joes with a side of carrots and fresh pineapple really hit the spot.

What do you eat on these HOT summer days?

I’m loving those grill marks!

Freezer Cooking Week

The month of May and beginning of June are a total blur. I have finally recovered from all the end of the school year recitals, concerts, evaluations, contests and the big home improvement projects we tackled (more on those to come :)). Needless to say, I did not do much cooking during that time and my freezer was getting pretty empty.

This time, my freezer cooking session was split up over several days. I just […]

Tomato-Ricotta Spaghetti

Tomato-Ricotta Spaghetti

Here’s a new recipe we tried out for our March 30 Meals in a Day freezer cooking session.

Tomato-Ricotta Spaghetti

Let’s just say, we love it! I knew it would be good when I was making it. The olive oil just gives it such great flavor!

To prepare for freezing, I followed the recipe except for adding the ricotta cheese. I wasn’t sure how the cheese would freeze and figured it would be easy […]

March Freezer Cooking – Part 2

Tomato-Ricotta Spaghetti

Let me just start with saying how thankful I am for freezer cooking. I’ve been sick for almost a week now and having meals in the freezer, ready to go has been such a blessing!

Here’s what happened on day 2 of my March 30 Meals in a Day cooking adventure. (Really, it’s more like 30 meals in two days, because I realized after my first try that this would be much easier for me […]

30 Meals in Day Menu Plan – March

It’s time to prepare for another 30 Meals in a Day cooking session. Last month’s session was such a success that I’m excited to do it again. I’ll be trying out a few new recipes this time.

If you’ve never cooked like this before, here are two big reasons why you should give it a try.

1. It Saves Money.

Every two week I pull out a set amount of cash to use for grocery […]
