I love the recipes on this site. They are always so good and easy to make. Thanks to all of you for sharing.
You cook the same way I do ... I call it "Planned Overs"
It may be something that can go direct from freezer to oven or microwave or crockpot.
Or the Planned Overs may be something that I have plans on other things to do with it.
Eg. cook lots of rice and freeze in single portions OR remake into something different within the next day or two.
BeckyBoo ... another good help is to have a menu plan. A friend of mine makes hers ahead a week, based on what is in her freezer and does planned over cooking on the weekend. Also, the menu plan gives her a shopping list for what's missing. The night before, you can prep what needs to be done and get what's needed out of the freezer.
Hope this one helps. My family loves it and I serve it with a tossed salad and rolls.

Just leave the beans out! It will still taste great.
being I am a single person, I like the slow crock pot recipes I find online, I pick & choose them and use whichever one I chose.
Thanks for the recipes. I love to use the crockpot and make enough for weeks of different meals to take to work. I am always looking for tasty satisfying meals. I am going to try the salsa chicken this week.
