2 cups elbows, dry
1 pound ground beef
1 teaspoon Absolutely Onion Blend
1 teaspoon Wildtree Garlic Galore Seasoning Blend
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 – 15oz can of tomatoes, diced or crushed
2/3 cup milk
2/3 cup Wildtree Kids Cheez Blend
Method of Preparation:
Prepare pasta according to package directions. Drain; set aside. Heat a
large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add the ground beef, Absolutely Onion Blend, Garlic Galore, and pepper. Sauté until beef is browned and
completely cooked through. Half way through cooking time, add the
diced tomatoes. Reduce heat to low; add the cooked pasta and toss to
combine. Sprinkle Kids Cheez Blend over mixture and stir well to combine. Slowly stir in milk and mix well until nice and creamy. Serve with shredded lettuce if desired.
Mix it all together and freeze. When it comes time to cook the soup, simply defrost in the fridge and dump into your crockpot with another 4-6 cups of chicken broth. Feel free to add some frozen mixed veggies, or mushrooms, or whatever you like to add to your soup. You’ll be glad to have the base to pull out of the freezer. 🙂
and Tortellini Soup, just to name a few (Again, don’t freezer the spinach.)

Last week, I planned to make a bunch of freezer meals while all the kids were away to school and other activities. One of my kiddos got sick on the day that I planned to do this, so it got postponed. However, I decided to make just a couple that night while I was making dinner. It didn’t take me any more time to make these 2 meals then it did to make dinner.
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 know there are some of you out there that are intimidated or overwhelmed at the thought of trying to get everything prepared to make at the workshops that I’ve been hosting. But I want to encourage you by saying that it is SO worth it! To have these meals in my freezer has been such a blessing! And the recipes are not hard to throw together.
But I had an idea. What if you wanted to do the workshop just a little at a time? I did that last month and really enjoyed just making 5 meals at the time.
