It’s Freezing Week here at Mummy Deals and of course there’s got to be a giveaway! When my friend, Lori, told me about this awesome book called Don’t Panic….Dinner’s in the Freezer, I knew I had to take a look for myself. I am a freeze-aholic and looking for new recipes.
The story is several years ago a few very busy friends got together looking for recipes that they could freeze. They had so much success that the book was born.
The Don’t Panic method of cooking is about how to make a few batches instead of just one and freeze some for another night. It also shows you how to buy when it’s on sale and freeze and how to use the loss leaders to your advantage. The best thing about it is not only are these nutritious meals but they’re frugal too! What a great thing for this website.
So fast forward to last Friday and here I was, book in hand with my 3LB bag of chicken breasts that I bought for $3.99. First I tried to search for ingredients I already had and came up with Chicken Cacciatore, Chicken Parisienne and Chicken a la King. The first two I just mixed the ingredients, threw them in a ziploc bag with the chicken and put them in the freezer. The other one required a little cooking first then throwing in the freezer.
This morning I took out the Cacciotire and let it defrost for a few hours before putting it in the crock pot (my other favourite thing!) for a mere 2 hours. Voila! Dinner was served, it was a great recipe and best yet? It fed 2.5 of us (Isaac at 11 months eats like a 2 year old!) for a mere $2.40!!!
