With the cold weather engulfing much of the country and hitting Kansas with some sizable snowfalls I decided to make some family favorites to keep us warm, like Clam Chowder in Homemade Bread Bowls. This also seemed like the perfect time to pull out some of my easy meals to make ahead. Let me share some of my family’s favorite freezer to slow cooker meals.
White Chicken Chili is a great winter dish, with just enough spiciness to warm a person up from the inside out! We love it with either cornbread or tortilla chips.
Another family favorite are these slow cooker Chicken Philly Sandwiches. I like to serve them with fries or chips.
I also made meatballs and put in the freezer to pull out and reheat for spaghetti and meatballs, as well as marinating some beef roast for upcoming Ramen Bowls.
Knowing that I can come home to dinner already made or easy to heat and serve is wonderful. Prepping meals for the slow cooker doesn’t take much time, but saves a great deal of time and frustration. These two are easy meals to make ahead.
Are you a fan of meal prepping?
I hope these family favorites will become some of your family’s favorites, too.
