Did you recently pickup 40 lb of chicken from Zaycon Fresh Foods? Or perhaps you are wanting to find freezer cooking meal plans for chicken you got at the grocery store on sale? If so, you need a Zaycon Chicken Freezer Cooking Day Meal Plan! Plus, be sure to go all the way to the bottom of this post for a giveaway worth $95!!
That’s why I am so excited to share this with you! Have you heard of Erin Chase, the $5 Dinner Mom? Well, she is a friend of mine and she has been very busy solving our problems as busy, frugal moms at meal time!
I haven’t been much of a freezer meal person in the past because the tasks were so daunting, exhausting, confusing, etc. I make attempts following plans, then it’s just hard.
So what I generally do is when an item we eat goes on massive sales, I buy a lot of it and then just freeze the fruits, veggies (after gentle blanch for most), and for the meats.
For our meats, we generally buy them in bulk farm fresh from a meat co-op called Zaycon Fresh. It saves us 30-50% off grocery store prices, is higher quality and fresh, not frozen, direct from the farm. But to get these amazing prices and quality direct from the farm, you do have to order in bulk. Generally 40 lb at a time.
When I pick up our meat order a few times a year, I usually spend an hour or two in the kitchen prepping it for the freezer. What I do is cook half and freeze and freeze half raw. The cooked portions are perfect for super busy days as I can throw a meal together in 15-30 minutes – even when the cooked meat comes from the frozen stage.
The meals that we decide to use meat, I usually use just one pound of meat, even though we are a family of 8. I have learned to s-t-r-e-t-c-h the meat by filling in with beans and high protein rice in an attempt to save massive amounts of money. But that is why I like this plan – this is the frugal mom’s meal plans! There are no expensive ingredients and so the meals are super, super affordable.
I just picked up our next bulk order of 40 lb of boneless, skinless chicken breast from our meat co-op (see my live Facebook video HERE)
Along with that, I heard about my friend Erin’s new MyFreezEasy meal plans and I wanted to give freezer cooking a chance again!
She has meal plans for what to make with the 40 lb of chicken. 12 meals! This meal plan comes with 12 recipes, shopping lists, assembly instructions and cooking instructions, along with video helps for only $7! This is a great Zaycon Chicken Freezer Cooking Day Meal Plan!
This is a pre-planned freezer cooking day, but there are even BETTER options. She has a membership site HERE that allows you to plan a freezer cooking day based on Zaycon Fresh order, any grocery store meat sales and most any eating style and dietary needs! The best option is to be a part of the membership site. You can be a member monthly or be on the premium membership. What’s fantastic is that she is the $5 dinner mom – that means that the meals are super affordable. Which is one of my biggest beefs about meal plans and cooking according to recipes – they end up costing much more because of the ingredients. NOT with this!!
With the membership site, she teaches you how to make several meals in one hour, freeze and have healthy, homemade meals on the table in minutes during those busy days!
What is MyFreezEasy?
MyFreezEasy is the monthly membership program. We have a BASIC membership where members of the freezer cooking meal plan subscription log in to get access to the new meal plans each month. And we have a PREMIUM membership that gives members access the “build your own meal plan” desktop app. The goal is help members create their own meal plans so they can make 10 to 12 meals for your freezer in less than one hour. It takes a specific type or style of recipe and meal to make that happen and I’ve designed pre-set meal plans with that goal in mind. I want you to be able to get 10 meals into your freezer without spending all afternoon in the kitchen.
What do the MyFreezEasy freezer cooking meal plans contain?
The MyFreezEasy Freezer Cooking Meal Plans are printable downloads that contains recipes, shopping lists, assembly notes, assembly instructions, 1 new assembly video each month, and printable labels for your bags and trays. The new meal plans are uploaded into the member area each month. The meal plans are created and packaged to make you spend as little time in the grocery store getting what you need, and as little time in the kitchen preparing the 10 meals for the freezer. The member area also contains a video library, a resource library and a free freezer cooking workshop.
Here’s a quick video on how it works:
You will generally select 5 recipes at a time to make freezer meals from. But since I have 40 lb of chicken and you may too, I am making 12 hearty meals for my family!
I am doing something super scary and way out of my comfort zone – I am going to make and assemble these freezer meals from my Zaycon Chicken Breast order LIVE on Facebook! You can watch the video here. I will be filming in the afternoon of March 1st, 2017.
