A few weeks ago my neighbor and I got together and made some freezer crockpot meals. With all of our schedules being busy, we decided we wanted to make things a little easier on us at dinner time. So, being the busy little blogger I am, I decided to put some of my favorite food posts to good use and make them slow cooker freezer meals. With this list you will have seven of my favorite recipes that total up to 15 freezer crock pot meals for you to make over the next several weeks. And we did it all in just under 2 hours. Cooking in bulk saves time and money, and with just a couple of hours of prep time. In fact, my grocery bill after taxes was only 179.84. That’s just $11.98 a meal. Pretty good for feeding our little family. I even put together a list of supplies you might want to have on hand to make freezer cooking a breeze. Let’s get started making these freezer crock pot meals!
