This is so smart... Plan and prep meals for the week! Through the recipe in there as well. If the meal has few ingredients, use a large ziploc bag instead -save some space.
Easy Weekly Meal Planning Prep | The Coupon Project - good ideas!!
How to prep a week's worth of meals. Stay on track with your plan, your budget, and your diet! :). Might be good to add the recipe if there is room so whoever gets home first can get started on dinner and no one has to wait for the one person who knows how to make whatever is for dinner! Love this idea.

"Freezer crockpot meals. No cans of soup or cream cheese, etc... The price per meal she works out is under $4 and she prepares meals for up to 10 weeks." I need to make more crock pot meals I think...
Crockpot recipes for $20 a week. :We spent $212 on our groceries, and I am estimating that these meals will last us around 10 weeks. So, roughly $21.50/week. Each bag will last us for three lunches and three dinners. In other words, each helping is costing around $3.75. CHEAP!!! These are the best cook ahead meals I have seen -knh

Crockpot Freezer Cooking 101 3/7/14 the pepper steak tasted yummy and super easy! Good freezer meal! --Leslie
Savory Pepper Steak 3 pounds of roundsteak but into ½ inch thick strips. ½ cup flour 1 tsp of salt 1 tsp pepper 1 large onion chopped a few garlic cloves—Ilike to put 4-5 crushed into each bag 1 green pepperssliced 1 red peper sliced 2 16oz cans of tomatoes—I prefer Italian style 2 tbsp beef bouillon 4 tsp ofWorcestershire sauce 2 tbsp of steakseasoning 2 tbsp of steak sauce Directions: Toss steak strips in mixture of flour, saltand pepper. Mix together beef boullion,Worcestershire sauce, and steak sauce and divide evenly into two bags. Add remaining ingredients. Cook on low 8 hours. Serve with rice and a side salad. Scalloped Potatoes andHam 12 new potatoes and cut into ¼ inch round slices or a large bag of frozen potatoes 2 cans of cream ofyour choice—I used potato 2 cans of water 2 ham steaks, cubed--we used turkey ham 8 oz cheddar cheese 4 cups of broccoli salt and pepper Directions: Divide everything evenly into two containers. Cook on low for 8 hours. *EDIT* People have mentioed the potatoes turing black if frozen. Mine didn't do that, but just to be safe, either use frozen potatoes or add potatoes the day of cooking. Salsa Chicken 6-8 chicken breasts 2 15 oz. cans of black beans 1 family size frozenbag of corn 2 cans of dicedtomatoes and green chilies 1 jar of salsa 1 packet of tacoseasoning 2 cups of cheddarcheese Directions: Divide everything except cheese evenly intotwo bags. Cook on low for 8 hours. Serve over rice or on corn tortillas withrice as a side. Chicken Curry 6-8chicken breasts 2cans of cream of chicken soup 1cup of dry cooking sherry ½cup of butter 8green onions chopped 4tsp of curry powder saltand pepper Directions: Divide everything except butter into two bags evenly. Add butter to crockpot when ready to cook. Cook on low for 8 hours. Serve over rice with a side salad. 2. I prep my grocery list split into categories and go shopping: Grocery List Produce: 3 red bell peppers 1 green bell pepper 2 large onions Lettuce wraps* Garlic 12 new potatoes Broccoli Bunch of green onions Meats: 18-24 chicken breasts 3 lbs round steak 2 ham steaks Frozen: 1 family sized bag of corn Canned: 2 small cans of pineapple rings 2 cans of diced tomatoes 2 cans of diced tomatoes with green chilies 1 jar of salsa 2 cans of cream of your choice 2 cans of cream of chicken 2 15oz cans of blackbeans Dairy: Provolone Cheese 4 cups cheddar cheese Bakery: Whole wheat buns* Staples/Spices: Salt Pepper Flour Beef bouillon Worcestershire sauce Steak Sauce Steak Seasoning Taco Seasoning Cooking Sherry Butter Curry powder Rice Salad Supplies *Buy only lettuce wraps or buns, based on your sandwich preferences. 3. I label my freezer bags with date, name, and directions. 4. I cut my veggies and place into bags. Any meats that need to be browned I prep at this time as well. Sometimes I do this step on a separate day, depending on how much time I have. Make sure to wash your veggies! 5. I add seasoning and canned ingredients. 6. I trim and tenderize my meats and add to bags. A tip here is to always cut meats against the grain! Makes for a much more tender cut. Also, make sure you don't leave all your meats out for an extended period of time. I prep one meat at a time, then stick it in the freezer as soon as I'm done with that one. Make sure to wash your cutting board and knives between meats to avoid cross-contamination! 7. Store in freezer and clean up! Check out Shaklee's Get Clean!

I would love to be featured!! AnonymousJanuary 25, 2014 at 4:18 PM hello. I was wondering if you precook the meats in your crockpot meals such as you chicken, steak? AnonymousJanuary 26, 2014 at 7:07 PM @ Anonymous, you do not precook the meat. The meat will fully cook in the crockpot. LindaJanuary 29, 2014 at 2:33 PM Can you brown the meat slightly, prior to freezing it? Like you brown meat prior to putting it into the crock pot to get that nice coloring?

Reply Replies Aimee SeaberryJune 17, 2012 at 9:21 PM Thanks, they are a favorite at our house! Reply AmandaJune 17, 2012 at 2:36 PM Silly question, I'm sure. When you divide each thing into two bags is this because its two meals or that it just won't fit into one bag? Reply Replies Aimee SeaberryJune 17, 2012 at 2:48 PM I'm so glad you asked and now I feel silly for leaving that out! Yes, dividing into 2 bags makes double the meals, however if you have a larger family than 4 you can leave it all in one bag! rosemagnificentJune 28, 2012 at 4:04 PM What if like me your family consists of two people. Can I divide a bag into two or is that too small for a crockpot meal? Should I cook the whole bag and then divide instead? Which way to go? Oh and we are out of the house for 8 hours at least so I cannot lower the time. thanks! Reply MichelleJune 17, 2012 at 5:45 PM This is a great idea to have on hand, I might need to carve out some time, probably in the middle of the night, to do this!

Thanks for sharing. :) Reply Replies Aimee SeaberryJune 18, 2012 at 3:29 PM Thanks Kristin! I normally just rinse the bag under warm water to get it loosened and then I dump it in frozen. Seems to work well. I've also let it thaw a little overnight too. Didn't seem to make a big difference. Reply TammyJune 18, 2012 at 3:15 PM Great page! So, where are you getting the recipes? Do you have a book you follow? Where can I find more - this is a must have for the busy Mom, college student, and well, pretty much anyone that buys fast food ;) Reply Replies Aimee SeaberryJune 18, 2012 at 3:35 PM Thanks Tammy. I do a new post every two weeks when I'm actually doing them for our family. I actually just have been taking crockpot meals that we have used before and making them big enough for two bags and adding the extra spices that I normally throw in to make them tastier. I originally came up with the idea from my friend's blog: http://www.ringaroundtherosies.net/. I may look into an e-book in the next 6 months or so. Keep checking back! Reply ChickenJune 19, 2012 at 3:30 AM This is so wonderful- I am expecting a baby in three weeks so this is on my to do list for this weekend. Thank you so much for the inspiration!

Thanks for your help! Reply Replies Aimee SeaberryJune 22, 2012 at 7:55 PM The only meat I ever pre-cook is ground beef just because it doesn't form right otherwise. So, to answer your question, no.

Congratulations for your creativity! Reply MariaJune 25, 2012 at 2:47 PM Hi Aimee, I'm wondering if you've heard or read of a way to do these types of recipe's without the "cream-of" soups. I don't buy these and am always trying to figure out how to do these freezer crockpot meals without them. What I've been able to figure out is adding more stock or broth to the original recipe and then in the last 20-30 minutes of cook time adding some type of creaminess to the crockpot, (like cream cheese or sour cream). Any thoughts or suggestions? I love all your ideas, just hoping to find a way to adjust it to me and my families tastes. Thank you! Reply Replies Aimee SeaberryJune 28, 2012 at 6:13 PM I think those ideas sound great! I have a friend who avoids cream of stuff. I'll ask her! Aimee SeaberryJuly 8, 2012 at 2:29 PM I'm doing a post on homemade cream of chicken soup this week! I plan on canning it.

Thanks for sharing this. I've shared it on my fan page. Reply Richard and McKennaJuly 8, 2012 at 2:18 PM This is awesome! I am planning on doing this for this weeks meals! I have a question though. It is just my husband and I (my 2 kids are too young to enjoy good food haha) so would it work to half the recipe so it is only 1 meal/bag rather than 2? Reply Aimee SeaberryJuly 8, 2012 at 2:26 PM I split everything into two bags. That serves me and my husband as well as our 2 year old. So it's already set up to be split in half. If you wanted to serve four you'd have to put it all in one bag or double the recipe to make 2 meals that serve four. Reply Stephanie VeraJuly 9, 2012 at 6:04 PM First of all, this is awesome! But I do have a few questions. When you say "liner" what do you mean? I'm kinda me to crock pot cooking so sorry if the questions are dumb. Also, do.gov just throw the whole freezer bag in the pot? If so, do you use fluids at all? Reply Replies Aimee SeaberryJuly 10, 2012 at 10:06 AM You take the contents out of the bag. You can purchase crockpot liners in the baggie aisle. They are wonderful! Reply ChelseaJuly 10, 2012 at 9:51 AM I just made the scalloped potatoes and they turned brown in the freezer and got darker while cooking. Did this happen to you? I just read online that potatoes really shouldn't be frozen unless partially cooked to prevent this from happening. I look forward to trying out the other recipes. Reply Replies Aimee SeaberryJuly 10, 2012 at 10:04 AM New potatos are okay to do raw. I should have specified that. But yes, otherwise you Would want to either pre-cook them or add them in raw at time of cooking. AnonymousAugust 13, 2012 at 11:27 AM Wanting to use your scalloped potatoes and ham recipe in a freezer meal swap. I think it would be more convenient for my friends to pre-cook them for this swap- so how long do I pre-cook? and then once cooked, add them to meat to freeze? email@example.com Reply Sweet Living magazineJuly 18, 2012 at 5:08 AM This is fabulous!

I'm a teacher and I'd love to be able to do these recipes during the school year but I leave my home at 7:00am and don't get home til 4:45... much too long to leave a crock-pot on low all day. Have you found any delay start crock-pots? Or do you have any suggestions? Thanks, Aimee Reply Replies Aimee SeaberryJuly 18, 2012 at 3:32 PM My crockpot has an automatic warm feature that I LOVE! If you're putting it in frozen you shouldn't have any problems, especially if you use a liner. I've noticed the liners prevent burning because it keeps things off the edge. You can also go to home depot and look for outlet timers, but I don't recommend this, as the food will be sitting out raw. bhelgesonJanuary 6, 2013 at 5:17 PM You can also purchase one of the timers that turns on at a certain time, a lot of times used for Christmas lights, and that can be used on any crock pot. I purchased mine at Wal-Mart. Hope this helps! AnonymousJanuary 20, 2013 at 1:20 PM I am also a teacher and am gone for about those same hours (some days a little longer!) and I've never had a problem with my crockpot meals burning.

I can't wait to give them a try. Reply AnonymousJuly 24, 2012 at 2:44 PM So I made all of these except the Curry Chicken. I like Curry, but my husband does not. The Hawaiian chicken lacked flavor. We added teriyaki sauce just so we could eat them. The scalloped potatoes and ham was just gross. It got completely tossed. The Salsa chicken was great, we loved it. The pepper steak was ok. So half the meals I made got thrown out. I'm curious to see if anyone else made them and their opinions. Reply Aimee SeaberryJuly 24, 2012 at 5:08 PM I'm sorry to hear these meals didn't suit your family. My husband loved the ham and potatoes. We used new potatoes which can make a difference. As I say in many of my cooking posts you do need to adapt the recipes to your family's likings. I never make a meal the same way twice. Again, I'm sad to hear you weren't pleased. I recommend adding seasonings your family enjoys. Not every family is alike. Reply chaplain's wifeJuly 28, 2012 at 5:48 PM Aimee, do you have any meals I could adapt for gluten-free?

Which of these recipes requires browning the meat? Also, for the salsa chicken, you mention to not add the cheese to the bag with the other ingredients. What do you do with the cheese/when do you add it? Sorry for silly questions...I'm a novice cook. Thanks! Reply Replies Aimee SeaberryAugust 24, 2012 at 8:18 PM Only brown ground beef. You add the cheese at time of serving. Reply LindsaySG13August 26, 2012 at 5:24 PM How long do the freezer meals last in the freezer?

I am so excited to try these, thanks for the recipes! Reply Aimee SeaberrySeptember 3, 2012 at 2:47 PM You can buy them already frozen. Or you google how to freeze potatoes. Lots of people cook them first. And some say new/red potatoes are best and others say russet are. Lots of conflicting information. Reply AnonymousSeptember 4, 2012 at 4:54 PM these are great ideas. i've only tried the scalloped potatoes so far. however, if you add the broccoli at the beginning, the broccoli completely overtakes the dish. i'd either add it in the last 3o minutes or something like that or leave it out entirely. Reply MichaelaSeptember 6, 2012 at 12:18 AM Love these Ideas! And the recipes look absolutely delish! Are the cooking times still the same, if I don't freeze them, and just put them straight into the crockpot? Although I'd love the convenience of making them aheada time and freezing them, I'm in college and share an apartment with 3 others, and our tiny freezer is pretty much filled with their pizzas and t.v. dinners :/ Reply AnonymousSeptember 6, 2012 at 9:59 AM THANK YOU for being willing to share this with others.

I'm expecting baby #2 the first week in January & was just wondering when I should prep & freeze everything! :) Reply Replies Aimee SeaberrySeptember 8, 2012 at 9:30 AM I'd say 2-3 months. Reply AnonymousSeptember 8, 2012 at 12:04 PM Thank you for posting these! My mother had knee replacement surgery in August. I live 400 miles away from her, and couldn't stay for long after her surgery. So, just before her surgery, we planned out these meals, shopped for them, then put them together in under 2 hours. I also made 2 freezer goolash pans for her (not crockpot) at the same time. I purchased slow cooker liner bags, and left them in the cabinet with the bags, to make clean up a snap. When she came home from her surgery and rehab stay, I knew mom and dad had at least 2 weeks of meals (they had leftovers from each one). They were simple for her (or anyone visiting) to start, and I knew they were eating well. The only thing we changed was chicken curry became chicken mushroom, as mom doesn't like curry. We just omitted the curry and added a drained can of mushrooms to each bag. Reply Aimee SeaberrySeptember 8, 2012 at 12:11 PM That's why I share these things! :) Reply StampHappySeptember 8, 2012 at 6:01 PM Just wanted to pass this information along. I made your scalloped potatoes & ham recipe today. I wanted to add the potatoes now, so I researched how to freeze them. You have to blanch them first (boil for 4 minutes then ice bath until cool). We made a bunch of recipes with potatoes and it honestly wasn't that much more work. The potatoes we used sat out on the counter for at least an hour after blanching them and before freezing them and they didn't oxidize at all. Hopefully this helps :) Reply Aimee SeaberrySeptember 8, 2012 at 6:36 PM That's awesome! Reply AnonymousSeptember 26, 2012 at 11:59 PM For the pepper steak do you brown the meat before putting it in the bag? Reply Rebecca BermanSeptember 27, 2012 at 2:24 PM I'm a little slow on the draw today --- I'm wondering do I need to double the recipe that you've posted or is that already doubled. Also your ecookbook -- will it have all your recipes in it or just some? You said you're not going to share you're recipes anymore due to the ebook, does that mean you'll be taking down all the recipes? Reply Replies Aimee SeaberrySeptember 27, 2012 at 2:50 PM The recipes are already doubled. My e-book will have all the recipes. I will probably take down some of the recipes components or take down a few of the recipes. I really would like to contribute more to my family financially and this would really help.

Reply ShaylaOctober 11, 2012 at 1:06 PM I think these recipes are a wonderful start and will need to be adjusted to each ones taste. I have cooked all five recipes and this is what I found to make it more my liking: Hawaiian Chicken - main complaint - very bland Cube Chicken Ketchup Worcestershire Added flour to thicken the sauce near the end of cooking to make a sweet and sour chicken to put over rice. Savory Pepper Steak - main complaint - NA Just used BBQ sauce in place of steak sauce as I did not have any on hand. Other than that it was fantastic as is. Scalloped Potatoes and Ham - main complaint - too salty and too much liquid Less sodium ham Less sodium mushroom soup Do not add any more salt .5 can of water for each bag instead of 1 Salsa Chicken - main complaint - a little bland Double the salsa Shred the chicken and serve over rice Chicken Curry - main complaint - not flavourful enough with spices, too salty, too rich Use regular, not green onions Less sodium cream of chicken soup Do not add any more salt Do not add butter at all Add ginger, nutmeg, cumin, garlic, paprika and cayenne Reply AnonymousOctober 29, 2012 at 6:14 AM Would you have to worry about cross contamination if cooking all meats in the crock pot for 8 hours?

YUM! Thanks for a great blog and great ideas! Reply Shal SMarch 2, 2013 at 1:45 AM I love your recipes and am dying to try them out. We do menu planning and Freezer Meal workshops through Wildtree Foods. I was wondering have you thought about substituting the seasonings you use with Wildtree seasonings? Not only are they considerably lower sodium but they are all natural, preservative, dye, chemical and filler free. I'd be happy to send you a sample to try for your recipes. For example: the Salsa chicken - instead of commercial Taco seasoning, you can use Taco Seasoning from Wildtree. Store-bought taco seasoning (brand omitted) contains the following ingredients: Maltodextrin, Salt, Chili Pepper, Onion Powder, Spice, Monosodium Glutamate, Modified Corn Starch, Yellow Corn Flour, Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Silicon Dioxide Added (Anti-Caking Agent), Natural Flavor, Ethoxyquin (Preservative) Wildtree Taco Seasoning: Masa Corn Flour, Chili Powder, Cumin, Sea Salt, Onion Powder, Oregano, Garlic Powder, Black Pepper. I can probably substitute the seasonings you use in all your recipes, if you're interested.

We are a family of 6, 2 adults, 2 teenagers, 2 children. I'm not sure if one bag would be enough or if I should make both bags.

Thanks! Can't wait to try these. Reply Betty819June 10, 2013 at 8:46 PM Do you pour yuor cream of potato soup into the ziploc when you freeze it? Even used cream of celery with sliced potatoes..adds such a yummy flavor that goes well with ham. For the person who thought the ham steaks were too salty, run them under water and it helps. I've done that with smoked pork chops. The red potaoes that you sliced, looks like you didn't peel them before slicing, are my eyes seeing right? I was raised on Red pototoes and they usually add great taste to any meal. I have a box of crockpot liners here but have never used them. I usually start my meats on high and forget to turn them down to low or forget to start them soon enough, so cooking on high speeds up the cooking. Will have to try the low temp and see how that works, Probably is more flavorful. There's just two of us, how many portions do your recipes make? Reply MonaJune 25, 2013 at 9:18 PM I just made the Hawaiian chicken! It was delicious. I made it on the stove top instead because I don't have a slow cooker.

Reply jpandtheboysJuly 25, 2013 at 10:36 AM Thanks for the recipes. I have some questions about the scalloped potatoes and ham recipe. I am new to making frozen meals and I wasn't sure if you are mixing everything and cooking it for 8 hours and then freezing it? Or are you cutting everything up adding to the bags with the liquid and then freezing it and cooking it later OR are you adding everything but the soup and water to the bag and then freezing it only to add the soup and water to the recipe when you go to cook it? For me, I think the recipes are great but clearer instruction could help. If we knew exactly step by step what you are doing it would help to know what keeps your potatoes from turning brown. I bought all the ingredients but I don't feel clear on the directions and I don't want to waste the food because I didn't make the meal correctly. If you could take the time to email me I would appreciate it. Thank you so much. Jennifer firstname.lastname@example.org Reply AnonymousAugust 2, 2013 at 10:27 AM I am looking to get into Freezer cooking. I read on another blog to not freeze potatoes because they will turn black. Is this true? Reply Sue LynchAugust 2, 2013 at 12:00 PM I made scalloped potatoes from scratch many years ago and the whole thing turned out gray! I asked my mother in law why this happened and she told me it was old potatoes. They would taste fine but just be off colored. I couldn't make myself eat gray potatoes so I threw it away. Wonder how you know how old potatoes are when you buy them? Are "new potatoes" really new???? Reply AnonymousSeptember 20, 2013 at 11:06 AM You can not freeze raw potatoes (they will be black, and their texture won't be right). You need to cook them, at least partially, before freezing them. I plan on making the scalloped potatoes today, half will be dinner tonight, which I will cook in the crock pot as directed, and the other will be frozen. With the frozen one I plan on partially cooking the potatoes and then baking it when we are ready to eat it instead of using the crock pot. I'm afraid that if I try putting partially cooked potatoes in the crock pot for 8 hours they will be a mushy mess (potato soup anyone?). But baking it should alleviate that issue.

Funniest response I heard today while explaining why I think making smoothies is much healthier than juicing- "Smoothies make you fat." Don't tell me smoothies make you fat when I lost 70 lbs drinking green smoothies on the daily (+ eating clean). Yes, you do have to be careful to not add too much natural sugar (fruit) so much that it will defeat the purpose of your leafy greens (spinach, kale, chard, etc.) but don't respond with something as uneducated and snotty as "smoothies make you fat".
