Dinner's Easy When You Go From Freezer to Slow Cooker

[Editor's Note: It's great to have dinner waiting and ready in the slow cooker when you walk in the door from work, but sometimes that means an extremely rushed morning of prepping ingredients and getting them in the cooker before you have to run out the door. Frugal Babe has started trying something new: prepping ingredients ahead of time and freezing them, which means some up-front work that pays off in a really easy way to get dinner on the table when you need it. --Genie]
Freezer To Crockpot Cooking
I really love this idea. It makes batch cooking for the freezer seem a lot more do-able. I spent about 90 minutes putting together enough food to fill the crock pot six times (a full crock pot lasts us at least two meals), and I had a three-year-old helper the whole time. Definitely not as challenging as spending the entire day in the kitchen for once-a-month cooking, but it will make my crockpot days a lot easier!
