My sisters and I are all about ease and convenience . . .
A couple of years ago, right before I was going to have my third child, I wanted to put together some freezer meals so that I wouldn’t have to worry about cooking dinner for a little while after the baby came.
Well, after searching the internet and Pinterest on afternoon, I was so discouraged to learn that so many of the freezer meals out there require so much time, effort, and clean-up when you want to prepare them! I wanted to find recipes that I could literally assemble in minutes and then when I needed one, I could pour the contents of the freezer meal into my slow cooker and dinner would be done.
Sometimes, when you want something done you just have to do it yourself! So I put together my own easy freezer meals.

To get started, make sure that you have a slow cooker. Any simple one will do – but this one is our favorite.
I would also recommend investing in some slow cooker liners – they make clean up a breeze!

Other tips and suggestions:
- Don’t forget to add Ziploc gallon-sized freezer bags to your shopping list!-All of these recipes can lay pretty flat, making them easy to stack in your freezer (they really won’t take up much room).
- They seem to work best in the slow cooker if you can let them thaw in the fridge for about 24 hours before serving them. If you are not able to thaw them beforehand, plan on them cooking for a lot longer in the slow cooker.
- Each of my recipes feeds a family of 4-6 (I have 2 adults and 4 kids) for dinner and then we usually have two leftover lunches for the next day. If you are only making food for 2, you could easily split these meals in half.
- Slow Cooker Liners will make clean up a breeze!
