25 no-cook freezer meals? Is this a joke? Too good to be true? No, this is exactly what happens when I run out of meat in my freezer and buy $250 (CAN) worth of protein in bulk.
Looking for quick and easy camping freezer meals? Look no further, I quickly pulled out 5 meals in less than 30 minutes to take to the lake for our family of 6. It doesn’t need to be hard, check the recipes out and comment below what is your favourite meal to take camping.
“It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!!” Another year has come and gone so quickly. It’s amazing how quickly time does go. I look back to the year and remember how I started it off going grocery shopping at $150/week for our family of 6 here in Canada!!! I started in November 2018 and […]
Have you noticed that I am back to full time work life? Don’t get me wrong, the last 18 months I was working full time but now I have to work under someone else’s orders…..wait wasn’t I working under little kid’s orders previously?? This is confusing.
Ever wonder how I load up my freezer with over 20 meals stress-free???? Maybe not 100% stress-free, but it’s definitely not the typical way you see all over Pinterest and other food bloggers. What do I do that is different?? Honestly, not much, just a little bit more planning and patience.

It’s simple, it’s frugal and I can make it stretch a long way. 2 lbs of ground beef are eaten quickly in this house and it’s the most expensive ingredient in this recipe. I use it all and split this recipe into 3. Instead of eating it three times the same way, I try to change it up and eat it with different carbs.
With the month over, here is our meal plan. I didn’t do so well with budgeting. I set a budget of $150/week and for 4 weeks I should be at $600, and I came to $648 eeeeeekkkkks!!! The point is that I am trying and will continue to try and do better. At least I am working with a budget is what I keep telling myself.
As I love to share our weekly meal plans, here is what we did for January with a few different cookbooks found at the library. I loved it when I received recommendations from friends and Instagram followers. If you have a go-to cookbook, let me know, I would love to try it out.
