Freezer cooking!

So for those of you asking about the freezer meals that I've started, here you go!  I decided to start this because I work overnights at my job every other week.  Most of the time I'm too tired to cook for a couple reasons.  Taking care of Mila during the day and working through the night, doesn't allow much time for sleep.  Now all I have to do is take the meal out of the freezer the day before, thaw it in the fridge, then put it in the crock pot when I get home from work!  Here are the meals that I have made.  I still have to make two Chicken broccoli rice casseroles but I ran out of room in my freezer!  I shopped mostly at Aldi, which saved me lots of money, and got the rest at Dierbergs.  I spent a total of around $106 and got 2 weeks of food, not including left overs!
