Freezer Cooking Update

So let me start by saying Wednesdays are very long days for me. I work till 5 :30, come home to change, cook/eat dinner and get ready to leave for small groups ( all in 40-45 mins), then we are not home till close to 10pm. When I came across freezer crockpot meals i just knew that was the answer to my stressful Wednesdays...


Look at this!

In case you cant tell, that is the super yummy sounding Sesame Chicken and Broccoli I posted earlier this week. BURNT TO A CRISP.

Luckily I had the frozen fajitas on hand and quickly thawed and cooked that on our stovetop. THOSE were fantastic!

I will not let this failure keep me from trying more freezer meals BUT I'm pretty sure I will retire the crockpot for a while and stick to the stove top and oven.

What I plan to make and freeze for the next 2 weeks:

Manicotti x 2
Enchiladas x 2
Shepherds Pie x 2
Beef Fajitas x 2
Sesame Chicken x 2

Wish me luck!


  1. This has definitely happened to me too! I tried to make an 8 hour meal on the 10 hour cycle...those cycles are not interchangeable haha. Hope your freezer meals turned out great!

  2. Thanks Jayda! Good to know i'm not the only one!! I have had much better luck leaving the crockpot our of my freezer meals plan!
