With Baby P due in just a few weeks, I am nesting and getting things in order for his arrival. One of the things on my to-do list was to make some freezer meals to have on hand for dinner. So my Mom came over, we picked out our recipes, went grocery shopping and got to it! In the end, we ended up making 20 meals (servings) in just under 3 hours. Here’s what we made:
Broccoli Pie (doubled the recipe)- 4 meals
This recipe is from my mother-in-law. Hearty, delicious and super flavorful!
-1 lb ground beef
-1/2 cup onion
-3/4 tsp salt
-1/4 tsp garlic
-3 oz cream cheese
-1 cup milk
-10 oz cooked broccoli (16 oz frozen works)
-2/3 lb monterey jack cheese
Brown and drain ground beef and onion. Add flour. Stir in salt, cream cheese and garlic. Add milk. Stir until bubble. Beat egg and add to ground beef mixture. Stir until thick. Add broccoli. Place mixture in unbaked pie shell and cover with sliced cheese. Add the top crust and seal edges. Bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes. (If using frozen broccoli, bake for 60-75 minutes).
Taco Chicken- 2 meals
We took a large package of chicken breast and cooked it all. Once the breasts were cooked through, we did the old trick where you put them in the Kitchenaid mixer and let it go (but not too long!) Then, I split half of it and seasoned one half with taco seasoning and put it in a freeze proof container. Will be perfect to throw in tacos!
Chicken Noodle Soup (doubled the recipe)- 6 meals
We used the other half of the chicken breast for the soup. It’s a classic and WW friendly with 4 points per 2 cup serving. Recipe is here.

So there you have it- 5 recipes, yielding 20 meals! It really went fast with two people and a good game plan. So thankful my Mom was able to help me with this! Now our freezer is stocked up and ready to go so T and I can treat ourselves to some delicious home-cooked meals when Baby P arrives!
