1/4 C soy sauce
1/3 C chicken broth
Sprinkle salt and pepper on pork chops if desired, place in a gallon sized freezer bag.

I have never made meatballs before in my life until last year. I made them and this meal can easily be turned into a freezer meal. This was a hit for the field and at home! I am the only one who loves onions, so I don’t use them in the recipe, and with little ones I don’t add in the pepper flakes. Find the recipe here: https://happymoneysaver.com/easy-freezer-meatballs-recipe/
Enchilada Stuffed Shells
2lbs ground beef browned and drained (taco seasoning – optional)

Box of pasta shells, cooked and cooled
Spoon some enchilada sauce on bottom of 9×13 pan. Mix beans and cooked hamburger and 3/4 of shredded cheese. Spoon beans, cheese, meat filling into the boiled shells and place into dish. Cover Shells with remaining enchilada sauce and cheese. Cook at 350 degrees until cheese is bubbly. Top with scallions and serve.
Chicken and Noodles
This is another highly requested meal around here! I make it in the Instant pot, and honestly cannot find the link where I got it from originally so here is a screen shot I took of it a long time ago.
Seriously the easiest thing ever. I love Fareway’s hamloaf. I normally do 2lbs. All you do is put the hamloaf in a glass bread pan pretty much, and layer the top with your favorite BBQ sauce. Place in the oven at 325 degrees for 1 hour per pound. That’s it! Slice it up and serve it.
Chicken and Rice casserole
1 can of Cream of Mushroom soup

I had to make a change of plans on one of my meals this week. I didn’t have the correct noodles. Swapped the baked ziti out for this and it was delicious! Find the recipe here: https://heatherlikesfood.com/one-pan-cheeseburger-macaroni/
I haven’t made this one in awhile, but we always like it! Find the recipe here: https://www.instrupix.com/3-ingredient-ravioli-bake-lazy-lasagna/
Slow cooker buttery ranch chicken
New recipe here for us, but I am guessing it will be very similar to the one in the oven! Find the recipe here: https://www.crockpotsandflipflops.com/slow-cooker-ranch-chicken/
5 Minute Coleslaw
I made this recipe for the first time when I made the BBQ Shredded Chicken sandwiches. I have never had coleslaw on my sandwich, but everything was saying to do it. I did it and it was seriously the best decision ever! Find the recipe here: https://hoosierhomemade.com/coleslaw-recipe/
1 can corn (drained)
1 can cream corn
1 stick of butter
1 cup of elbow noodles
1 cup Velveeta cheese
Cook noodles a little over halfway, then add everything into a crock-pot on high for a hour. Stirring occasionally. I always double mine because it’s a family favorite!
“Mac & Cheese with Meat in it”
It’s as simple as it sounds. Literally a pound of ground beef cooked, and then 2-3 boxes of Mac & Cheese made per box instructions. Mix it all together and you have yourself Mac & Cheese with meat in it. Literally the MOST requested meal and I am not even kidding. It’s one of those meals I make when it’s late and need something quick! Hands down so yummy!

Hot Ham & Cheese
The simplest, and I probably don’t even need instructions on this but I will anyways! These were always my favorite when growing up! Hamburger buns, your choice of ham, shredded mozzarella cheese, butter. Butter your buns, place your ham on one side, put shredded cheese on both sides of the buns, and nuke it in the microwave at 30 second intervals until cheese is melted. Enjoy!
We love shrimp around here, so I thought let’s try it grilled! This will be a first, I will let you know how it turns out but it sounds amazing! Check out the recipe here: https://www.recipesthatcrock.com/easy-grilled-shrimp-ninja-foodi-grill/

Pull Apart Pizza
This was a new recipe I tried and WOW, it was absolutely delicious! You can easily doctor it up if you would like, but honestly I didn’t think it really needed it. Just remember your pepperoni! I had it all made put it in the oven, and looked at my counter at the pepperoni I never touched. I pulled it out and just placed them on top. Still delicious but having them throughout would have made it even better! It was a huge hit at our house and so easy to make! Find the recipe here: https://spaceshipsandlaserbeams.com/pull-apart-pizza-bread/

Homemade Nacho Cheese
I have been always trying to find the perfect Nacho cheese dip. We have Taco John’s where I am from and they have the best cheese for oleys. I am hoping this easy recipe is close enough to it! Perfect for taco night, nachos, and dipping those copycat Taco John’s Oleys in! Check out the recipe here: https://bakingmischief.com/nacho-cheese-recipe/
KFC Famous Bowl
Another super fast and easy meal to make! Not much prep work in it at all! You need Popcorn Chicken, canned corn, mashed potatoes, shredded cheese, and gravy! Prepare chicken and mashed potatoes per usual. Then you mix everything into your bowl and enjoy! Not all our kiddos are a fan of mixing it all together, so we usually just leave theirs separate and they love that! So easy!
1lb ground beef
2/3 Cup chopped onion
Pepper to taste
2 t minced garlic
1 C dry elbow pasta
1 15oz. can tomato sauce
1 can diced tomatoes
1 t soy sauce
1 t sugar
1 t dried oregano
2 t dried basil
1 t dried parsley
1 C shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 C shredded mozzarella
Preheat oven to 350, cook pasta, and brown ground beef with the onions if using and pepper to taste. When there is a minute left to the ground beef add your minced garlic to the beef. Drain extra grease if needed. Boil your noodles half way and they will cook more in the oven. While noodles are cooking, add tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, soy sauce, sugar, dried oregano, basil, parsley, and shredded cheddar cheese together until well mixed and cheese is melted. Once combined add the noodles to the mixture. Prepare a 9×13 baking dish by spraying it with non-stick spray. Dump mixture into the pan, and add the mozzarella cheese on top. Place in the oven for 30 minutes and once it’s done let it rest for five minutes before eating.
2lbs ground beef
1 onion to taste (my family doesn’t like so I don’t use)
1/4 t Salt
1/4 t Pepper
1 C Minute rice
1 Can Cheddar Cheese Soup
1 pkg Taco Seasoning
1 15 oz. Can Tomato Sauce
1/2 Can Water
Beat the egg, then add the hamburger, rice, onion, salt and pepper. Make into meatballs. Put into 9×13 pan. Mix sauce, then pour over meatballs. Top with 1 can of cheddar cheese soup. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
Lemon Pepper Air Fried Chicken

Check out the recipe here https://www.lowcarbnomad.com/air-fryer-lemon-pepper-chicken/

Pineapple Lemonade Popsicles
Be ready to make your mouth pucker! Not as sour as it sounds but these were very good! Perfect on a hot summer day! Find the recipe here https://www.courtneyssweets.com/pineapple-lemonade-ice-pops/
Chicken Breast-2 to 3 large cans (It is by the tuna cans at the store) You could also buy chicken breast from the meat counter and boil/shred your own. Cans are faster…
1 package shredded cheddar cheese
1 8 oz. container of sour cream
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1 can of green chiles (They are in small cans near the Mexican food)
1 pkg. of medium flour tortillas…I like the extra soft ones.
Any additional toppings for when done baking: tomatoes, onions, olives, cheese, salsa, sour cream, etc.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Drain your chicken. In a bowl, mix together your chicken, 1 container of sour cream, 1 can of cream of chicken soup, and can of green chiles. Add some cheese (I just guess)…Maybe half of a bag or less…It’s up to you. I sprinkle in a LITTLE bit of chili powder and pepper to taste.
Next spray a 9 x 13 Pyrex dish with cooking spray. Warm up your flour tortillas in the microwave so they are warm and bend easily. Use a paper plate to lay your tortillas on and spoon in the chicken filling (from above) You can kind of guess how much filling to put in each one. You’ll want to save some to put over top when done rolling. Roll them up and put the seam side DOWN in your Pyrex dish. They should be touching and you may need to squish them together in order to make them all fit.
If you have leftover chicken filling, I like to pour it over top of the enchiladas. Cover with aluminum foil and put them in the oven for about 30 minutes. You can take them out a few minutes before/after and add more shredded cheese on top. Put them back in the oven until the cheese has melted. You’ll be able to tell when they are done, because the filling kind of “melts.”

1 – 2 containers of mushrooms, cut up
3 Cans beefy mushroom soup
Sirloin tip steak, cut into thin bite size pieces – this is where I substitute a pound of ground beef.
Onion, cut up (Optional)
Salt and Pepper
Mix and place this all in crockpot on high for 5-6 hours. You can substitute and put in whatever vegetables you like.
