Slow Cooker Freezer Kits – Reposted June 8, 2020

July 29th, 2019 – Update: The grocery list is incorrect. You need 2 bags of peppers and onions and only 1 bag of mixed veggies.

So what are slow cooker freezer kits?  Basically you have everything you need to fix a meal in the slow cooker ready to go in the freezer.  There might be a few items that you might need to add to the slow cooker on the day you cook the meal.  Other than that, everything else is ready to go.

Mom, What’s for dinner? – Week of June 8, 2020

Last week, we were in West Virginia camping for a few days. I had a menu for the trip but didn’t post it here. We had hot dogs over the campfire with mac and cheese on Monday and spaghetti on Tuesday. Wednesday was FREE pizza night. Hubby had some coupons. Even though I had a menu for the remainder of the week, I just winged it.

Thursday – We had rotisserie chicken with pasta side dish. All of us were exhausted from the trip.
Friday – Breakfast for dinner – Apple sausage from Sam’s Club and frozen waffles.
Saturday – I made cilantro lime chicken with rice and a salad.
Sunday – My mother-in-law came over for dinner. I made spaghetti, sauteed zucchini, frozen peas for those who don’t believe in eating zucchini, and brownies. She hadn’t had spaghetti for a while, so she was delighted with the dinner.

On Friday and Saturday, I made freezer kits. This week, I’m going to use a few of those freezer kits. If it’s going to be one of those meals, I’m going to put a star in front of it.

*Orange Chicken with rice, stir fry veggies

*BBQ Chicken sandwiches, roasted potatoes, corn (I have a half opened bag of corn left.)

Chicken wings, buttered noddles


Sausage, mac and cheese


YOYO – The Columbus Zoo reopens, so Youngest and I are going to spend the day there. I’m planning to go to the Trader Joe’s close to the zoo for dinner.

We don’t plan Saturday meals because we often will forage for food. If we need a meal, Youngest and I will make breakfast for dinner. He loves to make the eggs when we do BFD’s.

Stay kind!

Have a magical day,
