Ruth asks…

What are some very healthy, freezer friendly, crock pot meals – that are a sure thing? 😉 Thanks?

I am trying to lose weight. Basically – neglect to our eating habits and very busy business lifestyle (and no excercise, I m not going to make excuses) has put me in the direction of gaining a LOT of weight. I want to be sure I always have freezer freindly meals available in portion sized/controled amounts.

Any advice/tips….suggestions for some great meals?

So far all I have is a really good recipe for:
Vegetable Soup
and Chili

Savory Pepper Steak

½ cup flour
1 tsp of salt
1 tsp pepper
1 large onion chopped
a few garlic cloves—Ilike to put 4-5 crushed into each bag

Scalloped Potatoes andHam

12 new potatoes and cut into ¼ inch round slices or a large bag of frozen potatoes

*EDIT* People have mentioed the potatoes turing black if frozen. Mine didn’t do that, but just to be safe, either use frozen potatoes or add potatoes the day of cooking.
