  1. I am excited to try out the freezer meal concept. It would be nice to have expiration dates with each recipe! Keep the awesome ideas coming!!

  2. This one turned out really well. I put the chicken, onions and peppers altogether and it worked fine. It made my list of keeper recipes. =)

  3. 1 family is considered how many servings?

  4. I was wondering how do you keep the onions from getting soggy after they thaw. I froze some bell peppers and onions together in an vacuum bag and the onions “wilted”, should I just try a regular freezer bag next time?

      The best thing to do is to put the peppers into saute before they thaw. If you allow them to thaw the liquid all comes out and they get soggy sitting in the juices.
