Freezer Meals

Well I had a great day on Tuesday with a few girlfriends including my BFC.  We spent the whole day from about 10am to 5pm making some freezer meals.  It was great!!   We each walked away with 20 freezer meals and they are awesome. 

The list includes:
Mexican Casserole
Hamburger Soup
Curried Beef
Satay Chicken (recipe at end of post)
Tri-color Pasta Casserole
Pineapple chicken
Fiesta Chicken
Curry Cajun Chicken
Pork Chops with Ginger Pineapple Sauce
Ribs in BBQ sauce

There were 10 recipes and we each walked away with 2 large Ziploc bags of each (Except BFC as she has a smaller family and made 2 Med size ziploc bags for each of our 1 large one so she walked away with 38) (*the Mexican Casserole was in an aluminum dish so couldn't be halved).

I have the Pineapple chicken cooking away tonight in the slow cooker and it smells so good in here!  I love being able to just pull something out every other day (usually there is enough for our family to have leftovers the next day) and not have to woory about what is for supper.  The other awesome part is that the meals averaged $10.57 each whichis pretty dang good for a LOT of Boneless skinless chicken (60+lbs) and other meat.

Anyway.....here is the recipe for SATAY CHICKEN:
1 lb chicken (skinless boneless thighs work great
2 tsp minced ginger
1/2 tsp ground white pepper
2 Tbsp curry powder
1 tsp sugar
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 tsp garlic minced
1 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp oil

Just combine all ingredients together and BBQ on med high until done or cook in the OVEN at 350F for 30-40 mins or until done.  Enjoy with rice/salad or steamed veggies of choice.
