  1. You are one smart cookie to make the meal ahead of time. Why have I never thought to do that LOL? I use my crock pot a lot & this would save time.

  2. I find the best way to do sausage in a crock pot is for sausage and peppers. they are just melt in your mouth good. 🙂

  3. The pork chops look good. I’m interested to hear how the chicken, broccoli and potatoes come out this week!

  4. I love using my crockpot. I need to start making meals ahead of time so I can just pop them in the crockpot and go!

  5. Perfect timing! I was just at an event and am expecting my first crockpot! I am bookmarking this article right now!

  6. I really enjoy using my crockpot. I like to leave in the morning and come home to the delicious smell of a ready to eat meal.

  7. I use my Crockpot all the time, but I have never done freezer meals. Once I get my big freezer here I’ll have to start considering that!

  8. I was just thinking about actually doing this. My question is, are these meals just prepped with spices, and veggies raw and then put into the crock pot?

  9. I’ve really wanted to get into doing these frozen cock pot meals! Thanks so much for the guidance, there is so much to learn!

  10. I am a terrible cook, but I need to do something like this. We can’t live on grilled cheese and hot dogs if Daddy’s not home to cook!

  11. That’s one of the best parts of cooking. There’s more for later. I always portion it out for freezer use. 🙂

  12. I absolutely love the idea behind this. I’ve done it {kinda sorta} on a much smaller scale. Once I made a big batch of meatsauce that I could use for several meals. I loved being able to pull bags of that out and just use it when I needed it. Spending one day though, cooking up a bunch of meals is totally worth the time invested (esp. with the help of a crockpot) when you have a whole week’s worth of meals ready. I need to just break down and do it!

  13. I am always so nervous to try to cook anything in my crock pot! You make this look so easy though. Good idea with preparing the meals ahead of time.

  14. Thanks to Pinterest, my crockpot has been getting quite the workout this past year. I have found some real winners, and using the crockpot has saved my sanity on busy nights when we just want to come home, eat, and fall into bed!

  15. I love making freezer meals! They make it so easy to get dinner on the table on the weekdays! MMM I want to try that Cheesy Chicken, Broccoli and Potatoes!

  17. I loved making freezer meals when I Was pregnant! I saved them for when my son was a newborn, they were awesome!

  18. I so admire people who plan ahead and don’t have to rush around like maniacs trying to figure out what’s for dinner each night. The maniacs would be my family, by the way. I may definitely try some of your meals and see how they turn out. Thank you!

  19. I use my slow cooker all the time, but never froze meals ahead of time. It seems like so much work! But I guess taking a little more time one day will save lots of time on other days, right?

  20. Meal planning and cooking ahead are two GREAT ways to not only save money but also save time. You are definitely off to a good start on your crock pot/freezer friendly meals.

  21. I love using my crock pot! It’s a life saver! We are so busy during the week. All of my freezer meals help us save time and eat healthier when I don’t feel like cooking.

  22. I need to do more crockpot meals, and we’re trying to switch up a few things in our eating as well. Looks like you’re doing a great job!
