Stocking up...

Yesterday my mother in law and I cooked up a storm and stocked up the freezer. We literally have about 20 meals in there, ready to go! I am amazed because, all in all, it cost us less than $200. Whoa. Basically, that is enough meals for an entire month and I used less than half of our grocery budget! I am thinking I may try to do this more often, sounds like a money saver to me.
For anyone who is interested, here is what is on the lineup:
  • Vegetarian stuffed shells (2-4 serving casseroles)
  • Aunt Liz's Chicken Spaghetti Casserole (2-4 serving casseroles)
  • Chicken Potato Casserole (8 servings)
  • Green chile chicken enchiladas (2-5 serving casseroles)
  • Meatball stew en casserole (8-10 servings)
  • Turkey burgers & beef burgers (4 of each kind, 8 total - and these can be cooked from frozen right on the George Foreman Grill!)
  • Baked Ziti (serves a small army)
  • Burritos (8 total, great for an easy lunch!)
  • Meatloaf
  • Hebrew Nationals! (serves 4)
  • Spaghetti and Meatballs (serves how ever many, and can be heated in the crock pot!)
  • Chicken Soup (as much as we want to make)

I also have veggie steamers that can just be thrown in the microwave for a quick, healthy side dish.

Now all I need is the baby!!
