Menus and Meal Plans

A few weeks ago I was invited to a freezer meal party run by Kim Speckman.  I went to a freezer meal party once before where we all chose one meal to make and prepare times as many people in attendance and then we all swapped. That was fun but some people made super elaborate meals and it felt a little stressful.

Kim runs a pretty cool business.  You pay a small amount for her to give you menus, some prep ahead instructions, and then she brings seasonings and other prep stuff the night of the party. You buy most of the groceries for just your meals and bring with you. It was totally worth it. I made a few substitutions to her menus to make things a little healthier, but otherwise I've been enjoying the meals that we made.

So the last few weeks, we've featured many of her main courses (pineapple lime chicken, black bean burgers, spice rubbed flank steak, chipotle chicken fajitas) coupled with some healthy side dishes. And we still have more in the freezer!

I've also made a few other dishes that have lasted for several meals:
-Veggie Pasta Bake (whole wheat pasta, tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini, spinach, ground turkey, marinara and a little cheese)
-Veggie Chili (black beans, pinto beans, chickpeas, tomatoes, zucchini, corn)

I think this week we're going to go with:
-Turkey Burgers with curried roasted broccoflower
-Pork tenderloin and roasted green bean salad
-Pineapple Lime Chicken with black bean salad
-Greek Turkey Tacos
-Feta and Leek Frittata
-Blackened Tilapia Tacos
-Black Bean burgers
