What's in your freezer?

My Valentine's Gift!
I get to keep kickboxing
even after the challenge!
This is the final week of my 9 week fitness challenge.  I am so glad that I did it, but there is a part of me that is ready to take what I have learned and work out at home.  The early mornings are kicking me in the pants for than the workouts!  I will do another fitness challenge someday when I do not have to get out of bed before 5 a.m.! 
Many things (like blogging!) have gotten put on the back burner during my fitness challenge.  In addition to my trips to the gym we have had a busy couple of weeks as a family.  Special classes and opportunities suddenly took over our calendar.  This last week I relied heavily on a few meals that I had put in the freezer for a "busy day."  Thank goodness I had a few in there because it was a week of busy days!  I need to get my freezer stocked back up again but here are a few things that you should try!

I made these for my husband's lunches.  He thought I was amazing!

My family loved this.  I am to try sneaking other root vegetables, but the family loved LOVED this meal.

I love taking advantage chicken sales and making pop corn chicken.  Pop corn chicken is so kid friendly and my husband and I love to throw them on a salad.  I am always happy to have these in the freezer.

I pair meatballs with either spaghetti or with mashed potatoes

I was able to prepare this casserole with cheese on only have for the dairy-free in my crew.  I have one in my freezer right now for whenever I need it!

These were met with mixed reviews.  The younger two kids liked them, but the older two didn't.  I love the idea of fast freezer lunches!
