After you’ve gotten your dinner plans under control with our list of Free Meal Planning Printables, let’s take it up a notch and make cooking your meals for the week even easier with Crock Pot Freezer meals!  crock pot meals image

Here’s how it works… you purchase ingredients for multiple crock pot meals, then spend an hour or two on one day trimming, chopping, and measuring the ingredients, separate them into individual bags, label with the name and cooking time, then pop them in the freezer.  When you want to make the meal, just defrost the bag in the fridge the night before, and empty it into the slow cooker in the morning!  (Defrosting is not a deal breaker, for most of these recipes you can still cook with frozen ingredients, just add time accordingly).

With Crock Pot Freezer Meals you can get dinners ready for the week, or even the month ahead.  Pre-planning at its finest!

Our trip to Tree-Berry Farm in Scituate was another big success this year.  We were lucky to get a nice cool day to go picking, the farm was busy but not too crowded, and we came home with 8 pounds of berries!
