So last Tuesday, I told you about all those freezer meals that Laura and I made. . .
Well, I already have checked out 2 of them and I am here to report back!
Meal #1 – cheesy chicken chalupas.
I was a bit worried about this one. Laura had made it earlier in the week and said that she thought it was super onion-y but that her boyfriend really liked it. I’m not a huge fan of the raw onion flavor. .. but I was pleasantly surprised. I didn’t think it was too onion-y at all. The flavor was good. I thawed it in the fridge overnight and then followed the cooking directions and it turned out perfectly. IMHO, it needed salsa, so I am glad I had that on hand.
I also paired it with these Food Should Taste Good Jalapeño chips that the company sent me to check out
<—great decision! The chips have a great spicy kick to them and pair with these perfectly. I would only get these chips though if you like spice – by the end of the meal my mouth was on fire. . . in a good way.
Overall grade for freezer meal = B+. It was a good (not great) meal, easy to prepare, went from freezer to oven well.
Meal #2 – Pizza Casserole
Again, thawed in the fridge overnight and then baked for about an hour.
Paired with lots of salad = dinner.
Overall grade = A-
Next time I would take out the ground beef and just do our favorite pizza toppings – pepperoni and pineapple. But it was a really good freezer meal.
More updates coming soon. Planning to make chicken cacciatore next!
And I am linking up with Becky for Treat Yourself Tuesday because I think that meal prep/freezer meals are a great way to treat your future self.
