So first thing I did was get all my recipes in one place. I keep all my freezer meals in a binder for easy reference.
Step 1- cook ground meat
Brown stew meat- totally optional, but this will add so much flavor
Step 2- cook dried beans- you want the beans to be cooked but not mushy.
Remember they have to cook in the crockpot later in the month.
Step 3- lable freezer bags
Step 4- chop veggies- I prefer to chop all the onions, garlic, and other veggies at one time. However if you prefer to chop one bag at a time feel free
Step 5- assembly!!
This is the fun part. Roll down the top of the bag and fill her up! After each bag is filled get all the air out and lay it flat.
My plan was to have 20 meals, however I went a little overboard cooking beans so there were a few extra.
