September menu (a work in progres)

I’m attempting to get several weeks of meals into my freezer so going back to work will be a bit easier. Evenings tend to be hectic and having dinner pretty much done saves my sanity.

As I assemble the meals, I’m figuring out carbohydrates per serving and labeling the freezer bags. This way, we won’t have to pull out the recipes and mess with it at meal time when DD needs to give herself insulin.

So far, this is what I’ve made and put in my freezer:

Crockpot meatballs (two meals)
Porcupine meatballs (one meal – had it for dinner tonight and doubled it)
Chicken enchiladas (one meal)
Bagel Pizzas (12 pizzas made, 6 left – 48 more to make tomorrow)- this is mainly for after school snacking

To be made:

Spaghetti sauce (two meals)
Taco sauce (two meals)

Need to bake ham – to be used for sliced ham dinner, bbq ham sandwiches, etc..

Need to bake turkey – to be used for any recipe that I could use chicken in – turkey pot pie, turkey noodle soup, turkey tacos, turkey enchiladas, turkey salad, bbq turkey sandwiches, etc..

I’m not sure if I’ll mix up the actual meals with the turkey and ham or just put it in bags either sliced or chopped. I don’t have much room left in my freezer at the moment.

  1. How do you make your crockpot meatballs? I’ve been wanting to do that (bought meatballs even) but haven’t gotten beyond that.

  2. Hi Jackie,
    I found a recipe for crockpot meatballs here: http://www.savingdinner.com/menus/free_menu_MMM2.pdf

    I thought the sauce ingredients sounded weird, but it smelled really good when I mixed it up.

  3. you’re awesome! I am looking forward to stocking my freezer with meals. I am NOT looking forward to you going back to work, though! I am enjoying talking to you everyday. With you and Chrissie at work all day, I get lonesome for some good conversation.
    Did you go to boomama’s and read her hilarious blog? you have to do that!

  4. Hi Julie! I’ve really enjoyed being home these past couple of weeks (after I started feeling better). It’s been fun to be able to talk to you more often. Once the kids get home and it’s time for the dinner/homework/showers/bedtime rush, it’s hard to find time.

    I’ll go to boomama’s blog right now. I’m taking a break for 15 minutes – have been blessing my home this morning. 🙂
