You’ve got a grammar mistake in your last dish: Bacon Covered Kalua Pork
All I have to say is this recipe uses bacon and I’m sure your already sold.
You’ve used the wrong your. Should be:
All I have to say is this recipe uses bacon and I’m sure you’re already sold.
Your means something belongs to you. You’re is a contraction of “you are”.
Anyhow – I’ve pinned some and am excited to try them!

The taquitos are definitely a great idea. I’m sure I’ll be using the George Foreman grill often now that the weather is about to get warmer. – yolonda

Those Homemade Freezer Chicken Taquitos are going to be my new favorite! They look really good and easy to share!
Yum! What a great set of recipes. I think I could make any of them and my house would love them. I think I will add those chicken taquitos to my list.
Great round-up! I’ll definitely have to try out the Freezer Friendly Apple Crisp. It looks and sounds utterly scrumptious!
I don’t usually make a ton of freezer meal. Our freezer is rather small so I don’t have room to store it. 🙁
I’ve never thought of preparing freezer meals before, but it’s a very clever idea. I bet it saves a lot of prep time for the family!

I will list it down and make sure to do it on weekends. It will be nice to have those for emergency hungers. 🙂

I am planning to spend Sunday preparing a bunch of freezer meals. It is a great way to be prepared for the month ahead. I find I get a lot less take out if I have a freezer full of delicious meals.

You know i like freezer meals because it is easier to prepare when I am really hungry. I like the idea of putting it in advancing and cooking it when needed with out sacrificing the taste.
These are all great ideas. Perfect for busy moms like me. Make ahead meals make life easier.
