Meal Plan (w/shopping list), Freezer Meals and Meal Appeal!
MEAL APPEAL happened – AGAIN! Round 2 was 26 wonderful friends making 310 meals and we did it in 1.5 hours this time – whooohooo!! My freezer is a BEAUTIFUL place right now!!
The feedback has been amazing so far… and really – who doesn’t want to have 10 meals in their freezer, all ready to go?!! Personally, I am all about 2 week’s worth of meals and will do it twice a month. We have had quite a few telling us that was there plan too… I mean seriously, you will have 10 meals in the time it takes you to even go get groceries!! This go round we also met a few that ALWAYS cook at home but figured they would buy a set of meals every few months just for the last minute emergencies. Either way, we are here for you and will be offering many workshops – so JOIN US!!!
So – I planned our weekly menu and of course, the shopping list! Using 5* of my FREEZER MEALS which is half of my stash and cost $62.50 (1/2 of the $125 for 10 meals), the following list is all I will need to buy to complete the meals below and to have AMAZING dinners for my family of 5! And truthfully – none of the add-ons are really needed…. You may eat just the dinner as prepared but I am trying to get more vegetables and fruits in my family! LOL
* We are using 5 of the meals per week since I am assuming one night is generally leftovers or something you prefer – like CEREAL – and also if you are as busy as we are, there will be a 2nd night during the week that you have to order out, or in!
SHOPPING LIST ~
- Frozen Stir Fry Veggies, Peas and Corn
- Rice and Potatoes and 1 Noodle side dish (Lipton Sides)
- Melon and Grapes
- Taco Shells
- Block of Cheese to slice

WEEKLY MEAL PLAN ~
Monday: Hawaiian Chicken – in the crock pot – and will be served over a quick micro. of a bag of frozen stir fry veggies and rice (I already have rice made and portioned in the freezer from last time I made rice).
Tuesday: Taco Casserole –We have shells – hard and soft and fresh lettuce and onion. I also grabbed a musk melon and grapes today to go with it!!
Wednesday: Chicken Pot pie – The remaining melon along with a grape and cheese platter is the perfect addition!
Thursday: Sloppy Joes –gotta be quick and easy so I can get “my TV time on” ~ SCANDAL!! Rolls and a side of Lipton Noodles and Sauce and some peas rounds out this meal.
Friday: Chicken Cordon Bleu – and some fried potatoes and corn.
Saturday: PIZZA – I have 2 HUGE commitments along with a Date Night so this is a Pizza treat day for the kids!
Sunday: Pork Loin – Freezer Meal Practice Day… looking at Parmesan crusted pork and a teriyaki recipe – advice???
So – there you have it… a run down on the Meal Appeal Freezer Meals we are having in our own Meal Plan, including the shopping list to make it all work. Now make sure you LIKE the Meal Appeal facebook page and give us some feedback ~ Thank You!!!
