My Experience: 1 Month of Freezer Crockpot Meals

I finally gave freezer cooking a try, and it was a huge success! One day of grocery shopping, and 4 hours of chopping and mixing, and we have dinners frozen and ready for the entire month! All I’ll have to do, is throw the contents of a ziploc bag into the crockpot the morning of! That’s it!

 IMG_0874

So obviously, one day of work makes for a month of easy cooking, but is it affordable…? The answer, is YES! We have an entire month of dinners, for what our weekly grocery bill is! A little over $100! Crazy! I didn’t think it was doable, but I was shocked at the cheap price! And to be honest, I didn’t even shop sales or scout coupons. I just made up some recipes, and went for it.

I wanted to share with you some pictures from my prep day, as well as the recipes I made and a free grocery list!

IMG_0890

Let’s Get Cookin’!

Step 1: Gather Up all your veggies, wash and chop! I chopped 10LBS of Carrots! IMG_0893

Step 2: In a large freezer safe ZipLoc bag, (I had to use two because I bought the wrong sizes….) mix together all your recipes ingredients. (Such as veggies, sauces, seasonings, and even meat! I’m placing my meat in the crockpot on the day of, because I’m just doing frozen chicken breasts, and I had no room in the baggies.)IMG_0894

Step 3: Place all your meal baggies in your freezer! Make sure you’ve labeled them and added any special instructions!

IMG_0901

As for cooking time, the “prep” is super simple! All you have to do, is place the contents of your bags into the crockpot in the morning, and turn on low! By dinnertime, your meal is ready! 

IMG_0898 IMG_0899 IMG_0900

(Unfortunately, I forgot to take an AFTER picture! Of course! But it was beautiful AND delicious!)

TIP: To make clean up even easier, I highly recommend you use Reynolds Slow Cooker Liners! It keeps your crockpot clean, so all you have to do is toss it!

IMG_0896

IMG_0881 On a side note: I’m in love with this apron my mother got me for V-day!

I’m also wearing this dress from V Vintage under it! Perfect for Summer!  IMG_0885

HERE ARE THE SIMPLE RECIPES I MADE:

Remember: Add more veggies or meat if needed! I made these to fed just two! Hubby and Me! I also will add freshly cooked rice the day of!

Lemon Chicken: Chicken Breast, Carrots, Onion, Lemon Slices, Fresh Rosemary, Lemon Pepper Seasoning & Olive Oil.

Quick Guide: Cleaning Solutions & How-To

I have been experimenting lately with using All-Natural Cleaning Products. I have found that they work just as good, if not better! What’s even more awesome, is how cheap using natural cleaners are! Making your own is simple, cheap and super effective!

You can clean just about anything if you have these simple items on hand:

*Items to Have on Hand: Baking Soda, White Vinegar, Dish Soap, Clorox Wipes or an All-Purpose Cleaner, and Essential Oil. (I reccomend Tea Tree, Lavendar, Theives or Purification.)

I spent much of today cleaning my whole house, and really fell in love with how easy this method is to use, and I love the results as well! So I wanted to share with you my Quick Reference Guide to cleaning some of those nasty places, with all natural products!

Disclaimer: I do mention clorox wipes to wipe down the base of things, and though this is definitely not all natural, I like them. But, you can always substitute clorox wipes with rubbing alcohol or white vinegar, or another all natural cleaning product!

Cleaning Solutions & How-To’s

Image

(If you want to use the printable above, just Right-Click Save)

Washer – Run 2 Cups of Baking Soda through washing cycle on Hot. Then, run another cycle using 2 Cups of White Vinegar, and 10 drops of Essential Oil. Wipe rim and base with Clorox.

Kitchen Sink – Pour 1 cup of White Vinegar into sink. Sprinkle some Baking Soda on top and scrub. Make a paste of Dish Soap and Baking Soda, apply to drains and let sit for a minute. Scrub rims with toothbrush. Add some Essential Oil drops down garbage disposal to freshen.

Dishwasher – Clean out catcher, and soak in White Vinegar. Dry and Replace. Pour 2 cups of Baking Soda into bottom of dishwasher, and run through one cycle. Then, add 2 cups of White Vinegar into bottom of dishwasher, and run through another cycle.

Microwave – In a bowl, pour 1 Cup of White Vinegar, and 5 Drops of Essential Oil. Microwave for 5 minutes. Then take a towel or sponge, and wipe down the insides of microwave. Take Clorox Wipes, and wipe down the outside.

Toilet – Pour 1 Cup White Vinegar into toilet bowl, and let sit for 10 minutes. Scrub gently, and flush. Next, add 1 cup of Baking Soda & 10 drops of Essential Oil, and scrub. Flush and wipe rim, base and seat.

Bathtub/Shower – Using a spray bottle filled with White Vinegar, spray down the shower walls, and tub. Let soak for 5 minutes. Next, squeeze some Dish Soap onto tub floor, and sprinkle Baking Soda on top. Scrub floor, and then let soak for 5 minutes. Spray down the shower walls and floor with regular water.

 

I’ll also be posting some video tutorials on the cleaning method above soon as well! So Stay Tuned!
