      My man (he’s to old to be called boyfriend) is going hunting with his boys for a week.  Last year they ate frozen pizza all week long.  This year they are bring with them a crock pot and want some meals that they can freeze and then throw into the crock pot to be done when they get back from a day in the blinds.  These need to be hearty, warm, filling and easy for a man to do. We are going to make a pot of chili and a pot of chicken and dumplings.  I also thought about Red beans and rice.  Any  other ideas?

        • It’s tough to get guys to eat healthy even when they‘re home - so you’ve got a bit of a challenge on your hands! Here are a couple of suggestions for you...

          I love the packaged soups such as Bear Creek minestrone. They‘re loaded with veggies. I usually make up a pot, then put them in single-serving containers in the freezer for myself. That way, I always have something on hand. You could just freeze the entire batch.

          Also, what about a pot roast? If the meat is frozen, be sure to set the crock pot on high. Add a package of baby carrots and some cut-up potatoes (which you can also freeze). Then, dump in a package of dry onion soup mix and a couple of jars of pre-made gravy. Add enough water to make sure everything is submerged.

          Don’t forget about frozen lasagna (I like Stouffers). You can bake it at home, then cut it up and freeze the individual servings which can then be re-heated in the microwave or oven pretty quickly (since they‘re cut into smaller servings). Of course, I prefer the “veggie” variety - but the “regular” is also wonderful!

          Good luck!
