Budget Boot Camp Challenge #8~Freezer Meals

Hey all you Budget Savvy friends of mine.  I can't believe we are already on week 8 of this challenge.  I am particularly excited about this weeks challenge because I not only accomplished it but I took it one step further.  
  The challenge was to make an extra meal this week and freeze it.  I actually made a large batch of one meal and froze half of it.  I made a delicious Chicken Cacciatore.  I cooked it in the crock pot all day so it was really no work for me except the initial prep.  I served it for dinner and then froze the remaining portion.  It was a HUGE hit with my kids and so I am looking forward to using it in the next week or so.   I served it over ziti pasta and with corn on the cob.  I only froze the sauce and I always have extra pasta and veggies so it will be a quick easy meal that we LOVE!
 I took this challenge one step further and joined a with a group of women in my neighborhood and formed a freezer meal group.  We are having a meeting this week and we will start doing freezer meals the first of September.  I can't wait to see the $$$$$ (savings).
  Because I completely spaced taking a picture of the chicken cacciatore I decided you might enjoy a picture of the dessert we had yesterday with Sunday dinner.  Chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting.  Oh they were so yummy!!!
