Hey guys! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty lazy since I feel like I am doing is waiting for baby to arrive.
I’ve spent the past few weeks making some freezer meals handy for once baby does arrives. My freezer space is quickly becoming very limited though, so I don’t think I can make much more.
I wanted to put together a list of my favorite go-to or really easy meals to reference in the future when the question of what to make for dinner needs to be answered fast. And I’ve just been meaning to share some of my favorite recipes that I make over and over again.
Because you can’t go wrong with pasta

When I’m looking for dinner in a snap, I pick a meat and a starch and a veggie. A typical favorite of mine is pork chops with a sweet potato and green beans or brussel sprouts. Easy!

Crock Pot Meals
There’s no better way to save time on dinner than having it ready at dinner time. I’ve made all of the crock pot recipes many times. They never fail to satisfy and offer plenty of leftovers too.

And there you have it!
I absolutely love all of these recipes. One of my goals is to print all these recipes that I make frequently and put them in a recipe binder that I have so I don’t always have to use my phone or tablet in the kitchen. But that’s a project for another day!
Have a fantastic Monday
