Freezer Meals Stock Up

When my family moved here to Northern Michigan last year, we all jumped in whole heartedly. We have each embraced all this new state has to offer us. In the spring, we planted a garden, in the summer we swam in the Great Lakes, in the fall we played in the leaves, and in the winter we played hockey. Lots and lots of hockey. Well, technically my son did. The rest of us cheered from the bleachers. My son, Collin, joined a hockey team, and I have since become what I boast is a hockey mom extraordinaire. I have loved every moment of the schedule filling sport, taking him to practice twice a week and then driving all over the state on weekends to cheer him on at games. 

With twice a week practices and a busy weekend schedule, I rely on quick and simple meal solutions and keep my freezer stocked. Conagra Frozen Food meal varieties are readily available and easy to access at my local Walmart and they provide me with a wide variety of options. Like my son’s favorite, UDI’s Uncured Pepperoni Pizza, which features fabulous flavor on a crispy gluten free crust. And my favorite Healthy Choice Steamer Grilled Chicken Marinara with Parmesan that’s a healthy, wholesome meal with crisp veggies, tender protein, and flavorful sauce in every bite. We’ve enjoyed several of our frozen faves after a long evening of practice, but my freezer is looking pretty sad after a long season of travel and practices now that hockey season has come to a close, but SURPRISE! My son asked to sign up for spring hockey. Here we go again!

Before the new season starts next week, I’ve taken some extra time while shopping at Walmart to stock up on our freezer favorites to ensure I’m never stuck without a dinner solution during those busy weeks. Instead of stressing about what to make, I’ll be able to help my boy focus on catching rubber biscuits and getting those w’s, ha! With brands like Banquet®, Marie Callender’s® and Healthy Choice®, my freezer is full of options. Here are some of my best tips when stocking up on freezer favorites:

  • Choose favorites: The last thing I want to do on a busy night is argue over what we’re having for dinner. I stock up on frozen pizza, which is my son’s favorite, for an easy solution that’s also protest-free.
  • Don’t forget lunch: I always add a few simple lunch options from the Healthy Choice Steamer varieties. I often forget to feed myself lunch and am reminded by a grumbling tummy around 2PM. Having options in my freezer helps me to have a quick solution so I can stay on task.
  • Mix & match: I like to add an element of freshness to the table when we do freezer foods, like a bagged salad or something similar so that everything takes minimal effort, but fills our bellies.

Throughout the month of March, select Walmart stores will be hosting demos featuring these favorite brands and even handing out insulated frozen food bags as they Celebrate Frozen foods.
