{Wildtree Wednesday} Opa! Greek Burgers (Figure Friendly Freezer Meal Workshop)

This past Saturday I hosted my second Freezer Meal Workshop.  These workshops are addicting, I tell ya. I actually look forward to meal planning now to try out the meals that are in my freezer. 😉

This month we made…

Garlic and Herb Pork Chops
Shrimp Scampi
Lemon Rosemary Tenderloin
Opa! Greek Kabobs
Zesty Lime Fajitas
Opa! Greek Burgers
Italian Chicken Tenders
Baked Chicken Scampi
Herb Crusted Tilapia (or chicken)
Easy Tacos

If you missed out on the workshop, but still want to make the meals, let me know. I order all the products for you and give you all the details of how to make them in your own kitchen. (Or, for more fun, you could have some friends over & host your own workshop! That would also involve free stuff.) 🙂

The night of the workshop I decided that I wanted to make the Greek Burgers. When I opened the Opa! Greek Seasoning Blend I couldn’t wait to try it.

 One whiff and you'll just want to make something with it!
