8 Freezer Meals in 2 hours is an easy way to prepare meals in advance and it will save you time and money!

My three boys are constantly on the go with school and after school activities. My oldest son has now started Weight Lifting and Conditioning after school three days a week for football. I have to pick him up at the local high school at 5pm and that is when I am usually getting started in the kitchen to make dinner. So I decided to to some research and find freezer meals that sounded good for my family. I ended up picking out the following freezer meals listed below.

8 Freezer Meals in 2 Hours:

Crockpot Chicken Fajitas ( I made 2 of these)

Crockpot Cilantro Lime Chicken

Crockpot Honey Rosemary Chicken

Crockpot Pear, Apple and Pork Dinner

Crockpot Cranberry Orange Chicken

Easy Crockpot Meatloaf

Crockpot Bean Stew

By choosing these meals I did not have to cook any of the meat or poultry in these freezer meal recipes. That is a huge time saver when prepping freezer meals! I made a list of what I needed for each recipe. Next I went to my kitchen and pulled out what I already had for each recipe. Then I made a shopping list of what I needed to get at the store. I had most of the spices and meat in my kitchen. So when I went to the store I mostly had to buy fruit, vegetables and freezer ziploc bags. When I got home I arranged on the ingredients on my table. Got out my cutting boards and knifes. Put my apron on and started with labeling the ziploc bags first. I had each recipe pulled up on laptop and would write the instructions on the bag along with the date.

Next I started with a recipe and followed step by step the directions from the recipe and filled the bag. I would then move on to the next one. I just followed each recipe and then I laid the crockpot freezer meals flat in the freezer with the exception of the  Crockpot Pear, Apple and Pork Dinner I stood the bag up. That week when I wanted to make them I would pull them out the night before and let thaw in the fridge overnight except for the Easy Crockpot Meatloaf. I put it in the slow cooker still frozen and cooked it, but you can do it either way.

    Love this and hope to be able to try it soon. Looks like some yummy recipes and would come in handy on those nights I don’t know what to have or a busy day and supper ready.

    Do you have a shopping list made for these meals? I have always wanted to try to prepare freezer meals but was always intimidated. I think I can do this.

  3. Barbara says

    By any chance do you have a combined shopping this for this as you do for the 20 meals? I found that article first, but taking your suggestion, would like to give a first try with this ‘smaller’ set of meals…

    Hi, I just found your site and I love all the recipe’s. I just have a question, these are just prepping right? I don’t cook these meals yet until the day of? Is there any foods I can cook and freeze for later? I am a single full time working and full time going to school mom and i could use a little extra help with this process. Thank you “)

    Silly silly question coming up. I don’t own a crockpot *gasp*, because I absolutely love my pressure cooker. Do you have any idea if these would work great with pressure cookers? I feel like they would, but don’t know if you’ve done it. The recipes look deelish, and my family would LOVE this.
