Meals~Dec. 14-20~Meal Prep

Jump to recipe!

As the holidays grow closer, I am especially grateful for my menu plan. Our dinner time last week went well, after participating in Once A Month Freezer Cooking, and discovering just how great it is to have some meals prepared and ready to cook, I decided to try and do some or all of my meal prep for each week, in one day. This past week while the Jam Cake was baking, I put Honey Hoisin Chicken in the crockpot (it was great!) and cut up the other chicken breasts, one for Fajitas and one I marinated with Soy Sauce, then placed them in freezer bags. I cooked sausage and 3 pounds of hamburger, using one pound in Spaghetti Sauce (I put that in the frig for the following night), one pound was prepared for Taco Bake and the last pound I put in a bag for future use.

So, in a matter of about 90 minutes here is what I had…

  • dinner in the crockpot, added rice at meal time, 10 minutes ready
  • Spaghetti Sauce cooked and ready, the following night I put it in the crockpot at about 2:30 p.m. on low, boiled noodles, 15 minutes ready, enough leftover for Mostacolli this week
  • Taco Bake hamburger cooked and in freezer, used it on Sun night, 10 minutes ready and in the oven
  • Chicken cut for Fajitas
  • Chicken cut and marinated in Soy Sauce
  • Hamburger cooked for Mostacolli for this week
  • Sausage cooked for Bubble Pizza, 15 minutes ready for oven
  • And of course, 7 mini loaves of Jam Cake baked and ready to enjoy

Here is what ‘s on the menu for this week

Monday:  Mostacolli, Parmesan Knots and Salad (using leftover Spaghetti Sauce from last week)
