Marathon of Meals - Freezer Meals in an afternoon.......

My dear friend Shay and I participate in 
a marathon every once in a while...
this is a marathon of epic proportions
it requires planning......
preparation & STAMINA
but the payoff is great. 
 I am not talking about running,
although Shay is a seasoned runner
this is a marathon of meals...
yes, food
We gather together in a messy, kind of crazy event of assembling freezer meals.

I have been asked for the recipes that we use and how we do it. 
This is not a new concept. 
If you are a Pinterest fan you will see bunches of pins on this very topic. 
Yesterday, we completed the task of assembling 20+ freezer meals for each of us in 6 hours.

When we started the process it was daylight.
Here is my house

The one with the red pickup in front of it...

Here is Shay's house

She lives across the street a few hundred yards
and I am proud to say that...yes, I loaded up my groceries in my car and drove them over 

The groceries and supplies to accomplish
this culinary feat occupied my entire trunk.

Here are links to some of the recipes
Ring Around the Rosies Freezer Meals
Jaime at Ring Around the Rosies 
has some fabulous ones that we have used time and time again like:
Crockpot friendly recipes
Cilantro Lime Chicken
Spaghetti for a Crowd
Teriyaki Chicken
Sweet & Tangy Meatballs
Savory Chicken
Lazy Day Stew

Items that help with meat prep
Italian Ground Beef
Mexican Ground Beef
Shredded Chicken 
Chicken Stock

She has ingredient lists
as well as tips and recipes you can print

We also tried some new ones

that Shay found here
Thriving Home Freezer Meals

Casseroles to be prepped and baked later
Cheesy Chicken Brown Rice & Veggie
Beefy Baked Raviola Fake Out Lasagna
Chicken Enchiladas

In between chopping, dicing
cooking and assembling
there were kids to be picked up from school
babies to be fed
Here is my friend Shay and
 her darling son Kenton
terrible picture...
this one is much better of her cute family.....

Haha I know this is a professional shot but mine is so bad I could not leave you with the impression
that Shay & Kenton are blurry in real life :)

And at the end of 6 hours

I came out of the house and it was like this...
from daylight to dark,
it took all afternoon but I will have a couple of months of meals waiting in my freezer...
pure awesomeness!

Recently I have pinned more freezer
meal pins on my Pinterest board 
that we will be trying in the future. 
You can follow me on Pinterest
by clicking on the Pinterest icon
to the right of my post.
Recipes are pinned on my board labeled
Freezer Meals

Next up we are going to tackle freezing
breakfast items, biscuits, pizza dough 
and possibly
some homemade bread.

If you have questions please feel free to leave them in the comments and I would be happy to answer them.

Happy cooking!
