The last thing you want to do when you come home with your newborn is cook dinner. This is why you should stock up on crockpot freezer meals & skillet dinners that you can cook in one pot and with hardly any effort at all. BONUS- the meals I am going to share with you are more affordable than eating out, arrive frozen straight to your door (so you can order from your PJs on the couch), and are made with high-quality ingredients that help nourish your postpartum body as you recover.
[Easy Crockpot Freezer Meals] to Stock Your Freezer Before Baby Comes
*This post is in partnership with Omaha Steaks, however, my love for this brand and their amazing products is 100% my own.
People love offering advice to new moms but one thing they forget to mention is tips to help you survive those first few weeks home. Long gone are the days where friends and family deliver healthy homecooked meals to new moms, which is a shame really. But, because you can’t rely on having your fridge and freezer stocked full of dinners I highly suggest you order yourself some crockpot freezer meals and skillet dinners.
Why New Moms will LOVE Crockpot Freezer Meals
As a new mom, you are not only sleep-deprived but your body is also recovering from a major life event called childbirth!!
Crockpot freezer meals are perfect because they require…
No prep, No work & No worries!
These exclusive family meals from Omaha Steaks feature premium ingredients perfectly prepped for your slow cooker. All you have to do is pour them straight from your freezer into the slow cooker, set the temperature, and go about your day. Your home will smell incredible like you have been slaving away in the kitchen all day prepping a home-cooked meal. And, the best part is when you sit down to eat your dinner it will taste as if you really did.
The Deal with Omaha Steaks
I grew up eating Omaha Steaks and so I have been a fan of their great tasting high-quality meats and seafood for years. So, much so that I became an ambassador for the brand when I began blogging. Through my ambassadorship, I have been able to visit their facilities, meet their butchers, chat with their chefs and dine with the owners. If I was already a super fan before my trip to Omaha Steaks headquarters made me a Raving Fanatic!!
The owners truly care about their client’s health and safety so they take extra precautions to ensure their facilities are not only up to par but are leading standards for the entire meat industry. They are also huge on customer satisfaction so you can be sure that your crockpot freezer meals are made to taste just right and are super easy to prepare. I think its this close relationship they have with their thousands of clients that allows them to deliver products that customers don’t just love but become obsessed with.
As a mom of 5 active kids ages 5-16 years old I have a freezer full of Omaha Steaks crockpot freezer meals and skillet dinners at all times for this very reason. I know I am serving my family a nutritious meal made with premium meats and veggies. You know it is good when the kids get excited every time we get a shipment. They literally have an Omaha Steaks happy dance. So, trust me they are good!!
Which Crockpot Freezer Meals Should You Choose
BBQ Brisket and Pork Mac & Cheese–
Who doesn’t love Mac & Cheese? It is always a big hit in my house and something I craved my entire pregnancy. This meal steps it up a notch with added protein and a rich authentic barbeque taste. Kid & parent-approved! Save yourself some time in the kitchen and order this easy-to-make meal right here.
It doesn’t get much easier than dumping these tasty prepped ingredients in your slow cooker. The only other thing you have to do is stir it occasionally and season to taste when it is time to serve.
Pork, Peppers, & Beans (with Rice)-
Chicken & Dumplings-
There is nothing better than the smell of chicken & dumplings cooking in the crockpot. The smell is divine and takes me back to my childhood every time. This meal will please every palate so it is perfect for all the guests that will be visiting too! Order the Chicken & Dumplings here.
French Chicken & Sausage Stew-
This meal takes me back to France. I was told it was incredibly difficult to perfect a French cassoulet so why try? I prefer this all-in-one kit which makes it truly simple. It’s the perfect no-stress, no-mess dinner solution, you just add the ingredients to your slow cooker in the morning. Start the slow cooker and head out – while you’re away, the house will fill with the mouthwatering aroma of dinner simmering away. This one is great for both adults and kids alike. Grab yours here.
White Chicken Chili with Beans-
The whole family loves this White Chicken Chili and I love that I don’t have to chop, prep sauteÃ© or mix any of the ingredients. I just have to pop it in the slow cooker midday and enjoy a delicious meal in the evening. I want to point out that the premium ingredients and high-quality chicken made this taste like it was made by an executive chef. The meat is just incredible!! Try it for yourself and see. You can order it right here on the Omaha Steaks website.
Three Meat Jambalaya (with Rice)-
Normally, the huge flavor of a Creole jambalaya like this takes a huge amount of work. Not here. Plus, while this dinner is full of flavor it is mild enough for kids to enjoy too! Tender chicken, smoky pork sausage, and brine shrimp, onions, green pepper, celery, okra, garlic, and fire-roasted tomatoes, and authentic spices. Everything’s been chopped, sautÃ©ed, mixed, and perfectly prepped… all you need to do is add it to your slow cooker in the morning before you leave for the day. When you get home, put on the finishing touches and add the included rice for 10 minutes and serve everyone a bowl. Order your Jambalaya here.
Chicken and Roasted Tomato Sauce-
With fire-roasted tomatoes & mushrooms, Kalamata olives, and capers this crockpot freezer meal will have you feeling like you are in a 5-star restaurant. I can make a simple pasta dish, but something like this meal I would be lost on without Omaha Steaks. The flavors are just so rich and complex. It’s absolutely delicious. Grab yours here!
