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.

Freezer Kits

As I stated before, we got a new fridge. I decided that I would make freezer kits after we came back from West Virginia. I love the convenience of them.

All of my recipes came from either Sweet Peas and Saffron or The Family Freezer.

Here’s what I made:

For the Instant Pot :

  1. Honey Garlic Beef – This recipe called for snow peas. I’m the only one who will eat the snow peas, so I left them out.
  2. Cool Ranch Shredded Chicken Tacos
  3. Orange Chicken
  4. Crack Chicken
  5. Lazy Lasagna – Hubby will be all about this recipe.
  6. Easy Chicken Cacciatore
  7. Steak Italiano
  8. Vegetarian Minestrone Soup
  9. Chicken Enchilada soup

For the Crock pot

  1. BBQ chicken
  2. Lime Cilantro
  3. Salsa Chicken
  4. Fajita Chicken

Marinaded Meat – To be honest – I found these at Aldi already marinated for a great price.

  1. BBQ pork – $5.50
  2. Canitas – $3.50

I put all the recipes on Google Keep in order to have them ready for meal planning for the week. The cool thing is that Google Keep can change the checklists to Google Docs. So I have the list in 2 different places.

I hope you’ll give doing freezer kits to help you with your meal planning. Here’s more about it: Freezer Kits.

Stay kind!

Have a magical day,

Slow Cooker Freezer Kits – An Update

Currently there are 15 freezer slow cooker kits in my freezer. It’s so easy to pull out a kit in the evening and then drop it in the slow cooker in the morning.

About a month ago, I put together 12 freezer slow cooker kits.  Then I shared my slow cooker freezer meal plan.

Having those kits in the freezer has been helpful because I ended up getting sick.  It was easy to put the food in the slow cooker and then set the slow cooker to cook the food.  There was not much thinking about what we were going to eat for dinner.  Believe you me, Hubby is happy to have dinner.

Freezer Meals (Day 26)

I am behind with the 31 Days of Slow Cooking.  Last week was crazy busy with parent teacher conferences on Monday and Wednesday nights.  I did not get home from work until almost 8:30 on those nights.  Then I had activities with the boys on Tuesday and Thursday evenings so I was gone on those nights.  Then my Hubby and I went on a weekend trip to Louisville, Kentucky so I was busy during the weekend.
