Fresh & Easy Menu Plan Monday

Stocked My Freezer on Sunday Night With Yummy Easy to Prep Meals! 
Let me share my menu plan for this week with you.  All these yummy recipes and ingredients are from Fresh & Easy. This is my favorite grocery store here in Southern California. Check and see if there is one near you. It's an awesome store for busy working moms who need easy to put together meals. 


Easy Slow Cooker Chili
Chili Seasoning + Can of Beans (un-drained) + Can of Diced Tomatoes (un-drained)+
1.5 pounds of cooked ground beef+ (optional) Can of Corn. Put all in Ziploc Freezer bag and label with cooking instructions. Cook on low in slow cooker for 4-6 hours or thaw and simmer on stove top.  
A good exercise in portion control, since the bag only comes with 4. 
 At 200 calories each, that is probably a good thing. 
I plan to cut them in half for a 100 calorie portion. 

Indian Style Tikka Masala Chicken for Slow Cooker.
Combine: Winter Squash & Sweet Potatoes from Fresh & Easy, Tikka Masala simmer sauce from Fresh & Easy, 2 pounds of frozen chicken breast tenders all into Ziploc Freezer Bag. Label as Tikka Masala Chicken. Cook on low in slow cooker for 4-6 hours.  Serve with side of Naan bread. I found Naan bread in the freezer section that I can toast and serve with this meal.  Serve with a Side of Brown Rice. 

Orange Peel Chicken
Combine Fresh & Easy Orange Peel simmer sauce, 2 pounds of frozen chicken breast tenders, and a bag of Fresh & Easy Tri Pepper Blend.  Combine all of the ingredients in a Ziploc Freezer Bag. Label as Orange Peel Chicken. Label with cooking instructions. Slow Cook on Low for 4-6 Hours. Serve with a side of Frozen Fresh and Easy mini egg rolls and brown rice.  
These are the best mini egg rolls
I also picked up two meals from the Fresh & Easy Kitchen To Go line. We love the Chicken  Fettuccine Alfredo and the Rotisserie Chicken Mac and Cheese. These are easy and delicious meals we can heat up in the microwave on those long days. My family loves these. 

Brown Sugar Bourbon Steak
2.25 Pounds of Boneless New York Steak on sale from Fresh & Easy, 1 pack of Brown Sugar Bourbon Grill Mates, 2 tbsn of olive oil, 2 tbs of apple cider vinegar, 2 tbsp of orange juice (or water)
Combine all into Ziploc Freezer Bag and "Smoosh" to cover all the meat in marinade. Label as Brown Sugar Bourbon Steak with cooking instructions: Grill until cooked though to desired level of "done-ness."
 Serve with your favorite sides.

  1. I’m stopping by for a visit from Organizing Junkie, Menu Plan Monday.
    We're also Fresh & Easy fans! I love the mango chicken and rice!
    This time of year can definitely add up. I’m working on my shopping lists for this week, looking for sales. We’re not having turkey this Thanksgiving. The choices are pizza or homemade lasagna. We’re turkey’ed out!
    Everything looks so delicious.
    I hope you have a wonderful week.
