A while back I shared how my friends and I started a freezer meal club. I had a few people ask for the recipe and it is worth trying I guarantee. I found the original recipe on Saving Money Living Life, but I cut out a step and it is just that much faster. So I am sharing it here today. This is a great freezer meal and it tastes wonderful!
