I went to the meat market again, and spent about $124, and another $75 at the regular grocery. I made 8 meals for the freezer, and still had a ton of groceries left over. I probably used about $100 on these meals. Not too shabby!
Here is the list of what I made:
Beef & Lime Chili From New Leaf Wellness. I used 2 little limes.
Honey Garlic Chicken from Who Needs a Cape
Easy Chicken Pot Pie from Kid Friendly Meals at New Leaf Wellness. I add the potatoes on the cook day so that they don’t turn black.
Cheese Tortellini with beef from Kid Friendly Meals at New Leaf Wellness
Cheesy Chicken Tater Tot Casserole from Kid Friendly Meals at New Leaf Wellness. I didn’t add the milk, mainly because I didn’t have enough! I’ll add that on cook day. Next time, I will not add the tater tots to the bag, and just keep them in the freezer in their own bag until cook day. They were a bit unwieldy to zip up!
Turkey & Black Bean Chili from New Leaf Wellness
Chicken Curry from New Leaf Wellness Kid Friendly Meals at New Leaf Wellness.
Maple Dijon Chicken from Six Sisters Stuff
It was a little slower going than I expected, however I think it was worth it. My husband says he doesn’t want to eat from the crock pot every night, and has limited me to 2-3 nights a week. I can work with that. He even helped me a little with today’s “cooking”.
As with last time, all of these meals require no pre-cooking, and minimal prep time. 2 carrots grated, 4 onions diced, 13 cloves of garlic minced, a few chicken breasts cut up. Easy Peasy! If you make any, please let me know how they turn out!
