Crock pot Meatball Chili
Nearly every meal I prepare consists of foods I have cooked or baked in bulk and frozen. I thaw items in a plastic shoe box to prevent condensation dripping onto my shelves (I’ve learned from experience). Then I shop my freezer from my freezer inventory, to see what goodies I can thaw and serve to my family and others. I write these items down on a seven-day menu plan and post it on my refrigerator as a reminder to thaw my food 24 hours ahead of time. Typically right after the dishes are done, I check my menu plan and put new items into my thawing box and slash them off my freezer inventory.
We rotate the same breakfast items each week:
- Freezer waffles with fresh/frozen seasonal fruit or homemade syrup
- Homemade Crock pot yogurt with homemade granola
- Oatmeal with cranberries, walnuts and raw sugar
- Cheerios with bananas and milk
- Scrambled eggs and quick bread like banana or zucchini
We rotate leftovers, wraps, sandwiches and salads for lunch.

It’s been one super busy week preparing freezer meals for a friend in need and a super busy weekend with lots of entertaining. Twenty-nine family and friends gathered for homemade pizza, cheese sticks and ice cream cake for my daughter’s birthday. I made a double layer mint chocolate chip ice cream cake, which I can’t wait to share with you.
I hope your week is full of blessings!
Is your September flying by like ours?
