February Freezer Meal Assembly

Another big freezer meal month! We assembled 21 sets of meals (6 were purchased at $120 and 15 people assembled) in just over 90 minutes (plus set-up/clean-up). Trying to become more efficient and with that, running into more ways to tighten things up. This month, we tried all new recipes through a survey on Survey Monkey and that worked well, so we’ll keep doing that in future months. I tried to get a better strategy in place and use more frozen items (like frozen chopped onions, frozen sliced peppers, etc.) and looked for “problem” items (like kung pao sauce) that we could pre-order on Amazon.

Goals for next month include figuring out which 10lb bag of chicken breasts we’re going to “commit” to and exactly how many breasts come in it so we can plan better. Sadly we ran out of chicken for one of the meals this month :/ Thanks for being understanding, groupies!

I numbered the recipes 1-10, so we could start with the most time consuming.

A few of our group ready to go at 8:30.

So.much.food.

I lost it in prep time and put out one two many boxes. Before I realized this I had everyone stand by their box. A *smidge* embarrassing that it was my error all along…

Meatball time! This month we tried mozzarella stuffed meatballs. Yum!

21 dozen eggs being scrambled for breakfast casseroles!

Our meal list for this month, if you want the recipes just let me know.
  • Kung Pao Chicken
  • Asian Glazed Chicken
  • Slow Cooker Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs
  • Stuffed Pepper Soup
  • Cheesy Chicken and Rice Bake
  • Mexican Chili Chicken
  • Chicken Fajitas
  • Chicken Taco Chili
  • Crockpot Breakfast Casserole
  • Italian Chicken
We can’t wait to try all these new meals this month!
We had fifteen people assemble 21 sets of meals (six people purchased sets of meals) and our preppers paid $78 each. We did run out of chicken breasts so they have to add meat to one dish, so the adjusted total is probably more like $82. I’m trying to keep it right around 80 so it was a pretty decent month! Thanks to everyone who makes it possible!
