I can not tell you how much I love having meals in my freezer. There are so many days I just don’t have the energy to cook and these little guys save me. Not to mention, they also keep us eating healthier!

Last week I bought all of the stuff to plow through Wildtree’s One Stop Crock Workshop, knowing that I was going to have about 4 hours to myself on Thursday. However, my youngest got sick. Isn’t that generally how things happen? 😉 Well, I took care of my little guy and figured I would find some time to get those meals made in the next 2 days. I actually was able to kick out a couple while I was making dinner that night. (Will share that in a separate post.)

Thankfully, I had plenty of time on Saturday to knock these babies out. I even timed myself so that I could give you an estimate of how long it might take you.

I started by labeling my bags.

I chopped some onions, celery, butternut squash, and mushrooms. Add 2-3 minutes to that because I forgot to start the timer at first. ;-)

And I'm ready to start filling my bags!

Once I got to this part I just got right down to business and started filling bags, totally forgetting to take any pictures (except one). I would load each can with a Ziploc, look at my recipe, fill the bag, zip, and shake it up.

This guy got a little too full for my can, so I had to move him to a bag holder.

About 50 minutes later I had 7 meals ready for the freezer. Then it was time for lunch and bathroom break.

NOTE: The Ranch Pork Chops, and Macaroni and Beef were not a part of the One Stop Crock Workshop. I had some leftover spices from a previous workshop (and there were plenty leftover from this one, too). The pork chops were on sale, and I grabbed double the amount of beef that I needed. So, I figured I’d add those meals to the list since I was already going to have everything out.

Finally, after about 2 hours and 10 minutes I had 15 meals for my freezer! The cool thing is that all of the paperwork was done for me… the recipes, shopping list, prep list, labels for the bags, even an inventory to keep track of what’s in your freezer! I provide all of this at your workshop. Or if you decide to do your workshop solo (like me) then I will mail all the information to you. 😀
