Easy Back to School Meals

For most of us, back to school means busy, busy, busy. I need lots of meals utilizing a freezer, a crockpot, a pressure cooker, anything that shaves time off of my busy schedule. I’ve compiled a list of meals that will makes my life easier, and hopefully yours too!

Salsa Chicken

Roasted or Crockpot Chicken and Veggies (leftovers are great for dinner or lunch the next day)

34 Freezer meals

Pressure Cooker Spaghetti Squash

Crockpot Turkey and Rice

Slowcooker Veggie Omelette (Trim Healthy Mamas can sub cream or almond milk for milk)

Crockpot “Stirfry” 

Pressure Cooker Irish Stew

If you can carve out a Saturday, or a few afternoons of your time, you can put many of these ingredients in freezer bags and just dump them into the crockpot or pressure cooker depending on the recipe. Double the recipes to make twice as many meals or to ensure you have leftovers for lunch. You can also make large batches of waffles, pancakes or muffins and freeze them for breakfasts as well.

I hope these tips and recipes help you. I know they are going to make my life a lot easier!
