To remedy this horrible eating pattern, I decided to take most of my Sunday and make some nutritious meals that I can freeze and heat up easily through out the week. I also prepped my veggies, so that they are easier to combine. Sometimes, if the carrots are cut up, I am more apt to use them...
So I made:
Mom's Beefaroni: pasta, groundbeef, italian spices, petite diced tomatoes, pureed tomatoes, shredded cheddar.
Meatballs: 1lb ground beef, 3/4 C breadcrumbs, 2 TBS parmesan, s&p, oregano, basil, 1 beaten egg. Bake them on a cookie sheet at 350 F for 15 min and they will be 3/4 cooked. Finish off in spaghetti sauce. Alternatively, cook them a little longer in the oven until fully cooked, then freeze them individually on a cookie sheet and transfer to a freezer bag. You can pull out a few and microwave for little ones. I use them for meatball sandwiches as well.
Apple Cake: will post recipe later. Got this one from a fellow blogger and have to ask permission first! (IT WAS SOOO GOOD!)
Roasted Beets: These are for my beet, avocado, feta, pepperoncini, italian dressing salad that I plan on having today.
Pot Roast Prep: defrosted meat for crock pot today. I add onion soup mix, whole mushrooms and water and leave on low for the entire day.
Any great freezable ideas that you might have?
