Be Prepared: Freezer Meals

$250.00 and two days of cooking resulted in two fully stocked freezers! Freezer meals for two weeks made the whole ordeal worth it!  I will really enjoy my efforts this time next week when we're knee high in homework and the hubby's working late.  I plan to do this once a month and hopefully it will also help us cut our ridiculously high food expenses.

This month's menu will definitely include:

Chicken Pot Pie

Chili, Pulled Pork, Beef Stew, Chicken Tortilla Soup

Chicken Enchiladas, Lasagna & Chicken Spaghetti !

Tips and Tricks:

Prep casseroles and freeze without baking.
All meals should be completely defrosted before cooking/reheating to serve.
(I usually just move them to the fridge the night before.)
Potatoes don't freeze well.
Freeze chicken pot pie filling without the crust.  Add it before baking.
