$60.00 A Week: Sunday Meal Prep + Weekly Meal Plan

October 24, 2015


Once again I tried to use as much from our freezer/pantry/garden when planning this week's menu.  The garden has come to an end but we are lucky enough to have some veggies stored in the barn to eat up over the next week or two.  The remainder were already eaten or preserved.

This weekend I've also tried to prep quite a few freezer meals for the next month or so.  It's going to get very hectic around here so I want to try and get as much ahead of the game as I can.  Putting together meals that can be tossed in the slow-cooker means I can have J get things going before I get
home from work.  I've included some freezer cookie dough balls so we can bake as few or as many cookies should we either want something sweet or have guests over.

Sunday Prep:

  • Freezer Chicken Dishes for Slow-Cooker:  Chicken Teriyaki, Bourbon Chicken, Honey-Sesame Chicken, Chicken Fajitas, Honey Mustard Chicken and Ginger-Peach Chicken

For instance, carrots are a pretty inexpensive...
