It’s been so fun to pull a few things from the freezer every few days and know that most of dinner was already prepped. Coming home from a weekend away makes these make-ahead meals all the more valuable. Makes me feel like a World Series All-Star.

Up to bat this week:

Chicken Fajitas
Pasta w/ Grilled Italian Sausages
Roast Chicken
Minestrone Soup

  1. We are still eating off frozen meals I made for September. I got the recipes from Once A Month Mom. And I have to agree with you. Im much happier during dinnertime when I'm serving a freezer meal.

  2. You are an all-star! That menu looks GREAT!!

    I just checked out your chimichanga recipe…we bake ours!!! We fold, brush with butter, and bake in 450 degree oven until browned! I can do a TON this way!!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
