Easy Freezer Meals

I’m talking about 5 quick and easy freezer meals to save time today. Here’s the deal you can put these easy freezer meals in a slow cooker after you freeze them or thaw them the night before and cook them in a pressure cooker the next day. They work great either way. I use these awesome bag holders so I can fill the bags: Jokari Hands-Free Baggy Rack Clip Storage Bag Holder, Pack of 6. I use these storage bag holders whenever I freeze grated cheese, pasta, rice, or freezer meals. It’s so much easier to fill bags and then lay them flat to get the air out before freezing them.

They work great for holding bags to transfer the grated cheese into smaller bags from the gigantic bags we buy at Costco or Sam’s Club. I no longer have to balance the bags by hand when scooping the grated cheese into smaller bags.The bonus is the bag holders store flat, woohoo!

clean you house
,

Today it’s my Back To Basics: How To Clean Your House series. I am hoping this post will help families get organized, stay clutter free and have joy in their homes. If my house is clean and orderly I am one happy chick! I remember when my daughters were little and we had job charts. They each had different cleaning jobs that would be traded weekly so they would learn every job around the house. I was probably a little over the top in cleaning, that I regret now, but we all learn as young mothers, right? My grandkids come and I could care less about the hand prints on the windows. I actually cherish them. How life changes. I have learned to relax and enjoy life, spilled milk and handprints on the walls. Life is good. I also know we need to teach our children to work, need I say more?

slow cooker appetizers

Can you use 9 quick and easy slow cooker appetizers? I love my slow cookers for entertaining because I can set and forget them with slow cooker appetizers for a few hours while I wait for my guests. One reader recently made a comment mentioning she had several slow cookers she would use for parties. She would line them up on the counter and guests could enjoy the recipes she had prepared. This is a fabulous idea! I only have three slow cookers but I’m thinking I want to invite a few friends over and have everyone bring a slow cooker with an appetizer to share with the recipe in hand.

need in the kitchen
,

Today it’s Thursday, so it’s my Back To Basics: What you need in the kitchen series. I started this series a few weeks ago to teach the world and share tips from my readers to get back to the basics. Just so you know the picture above is NOT my kitchen, but I would LOVE that kitchen! I have a very tiny kitchen with limited counter space but it works. I think I am over the top with kitchen tools, utensils and equipment, I must confess. I buy the best “stuff” the first time so my kitchen items will last at least 20 years or more. Here’s the deal, today I am posting items I may or may not have. Some may be items that are on my wish list.
