My friend Melanie shares a fabulous find on Facebook: 10 Crock-Pot Freezer Meals from Kari at Mommy’s Fabulous Finds. I’m so impressed with the easy preparation and simplicity of ingredients (plus I have an excess of red peppers in my refrigerator to use up).
After shopping, chopping, and preparing (which took less than two hours), I made six dinners from Kari’s recipes. In case you need more, she provides 23 MORE for you to enjoy.
I love it!
You take one from the freezer the night before, place it in the refrigerator, and then empty into the crockpot when you leave for work. Yes! I have six dinners on reserve for stressful work days.
I repeat: I have six dinners on reserve.
This feels wonderful. This feels prepared. This feels yummy.
There’s something about storing up–having things on reserve–that makes me happy. I wonder about storing up in other ways–emotionally and spiritually–that won’t leave me empty on stressful days.
I also wonder about searching for my own Fabulous Finds to share with you in 2014.
