  1. I am not an organized person but you made this look so simple. Our family is going to try the 16 meals! Thank you for taking time to put it into writing.

  2. These recipes look great. Can’t wait to try them. But I have a few questions. The Taco Rice casserole is 2 cans of Beef? Beef Broth? And the Chicken Teriyaki dinner uses what size of pineapple? The small 8 oz can with 1/2 or 1/4 c teriyaki? Thanks!

  3. this isawesome, Carrie! I know the post probably took almost as long as the meal preparations, but I’d love to see another freezer meal plan from you!

  4. Thank you so much! I used this the last few days as I prepared for and did my first freezer cooking session! Now, when I’m at work, supper is easy for my husband and kids.

  5. These sound great! I have a question though. What size can of pineapple and what kind- sliced, chopped or crushed? Thanks

  6. Sorry – just a regular can of pineapple – I normally do chopped pineapple – I think the can sizes are 14 oz.

  7. How many chicken breasts do you put in each marinade? I looked twice to see if I saw…also, do you have one whole shopping list for the whole post?

  8. Sorry we don’t have the whole shopping list and I usually do about 3-4 chicken breasts for the marinades. As long as the chicken is fully coated it will taste good!

  9. So in the taco casserole…just to clarify…2 lbs of turkey AND 2 lbs of gr beef? Referring to Gina’s question above.

  10. Also the teriy Q and the last mentioned chicken marianade. Is there a recipe?

  11. It’s 2 lbs of ground turkey and 2 cans of black beans. I have corrected the post. Thank you!

  12. Yes, click on these names in the post and it will take you to the recipe. Thank you!

  13. Carrie, when you do the frozen casseroles how do you bake the day of? Especially the mashed potatoes. Also where do you get your foil pans, do you get the ones with lids or use foil?

  14. Becca, I let them thaw in the refrigerator the night before and then bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes based on the casserole type. Thank you!
