September Freezer Meals

Another month, time for more freezer meals. My freezer got BARE this month, as we ate every single meal we had prepared with a whole week to spare before we prepped again šŸ˜¦ I need to do a better job spacing them out this month I think.

Here’s a pic of the cutest Illini fans in C-U to start… these babies did a fantastic job “doing their part” to go with the flow during our freezer meal session this month šŸ™‚

Emily and Carrie doing the meatballs. This meal has turned into the least favorite to assemble, I think… it’s definitely the messiest and most time-consuming!

Samantha and Charlee ready to get some chicken in bags. Looks like black bean chicken, from what I can tell.

Colleen and her labor of love, sliced green peppers! This is the least favorite prep taste, without a doubt!

We had several ingredients left over from last month, and picked some pretty budget-friendly meals this month, bringing our grand total to just $77 dollars! (and some change) 10 meals, $77. WOW. We still used six chicken breasts per meal, so they were the same size as last month. We think the six chicken breasts are about 2 pounds worth.
We have a group on Facebook now that you can join if you’re interested in participating from time to time. Looking forward to next month, when we’ll be trying some new chilis and soups I think!
