Getting all these dinners did require some of my "Master Cramming" skills. But I did it. I just have to remember to be careful opening the freezer door unless I want to get my foot slammed with a falling beef chuck roast. Here's my freezer as of tonight:

So tonight I loaded up my Cheesy Chilada Bakes and headed to the church to swap my meals. We had 27 ladies participating today, and we were divided into 3 groups of 9. We then exchanged freezer meals. Here are the yummy meals I ended up with (I apologize for the yellow lighting – I'm still learning how to take a decent picture!):
My meals include: honey glazed chicken, teriyaki chicken, mozzerella meatballs, broccoli chicken bake, chicken fajitas, black bean & vegetable chili, chicken parmasan, and chicken curry. Plus, the cheesy chilada bake from earlier (which was very yummy, by the way!). While this is a lot of chicken meals, I'm glad since you might remember all the steak and beef dinners I made last month. The yellow piece of paper (which is understandably hard to find in this rather yellow picture) lists cooking instructions for each meal. There are also some freezer cookies the church graciously gave us!
What do you think? Don't you think that looks WAY more interesting that just lots of frozen chicken breast and meat? These are actual prepared dinners using fresh, real ingredients! It's inspiring to look in there and choose a dinner for the next evening.
All the recipes we made tonight came from Fix, Freeze, Feast: I know a number of you have gotten into freezer cooking as a result of these posts. In the not-too-distant future, I'll be picking the brains of my friends Kellie and Becca who have graciously organized these swaps for the past four months. I'm going to see what I can learn from them to pass along so you can organize a meal swap like this, too. In the meantime, be sure to check out my Freezer Cooking category for more on this topic.
