Meal Prep Containers

We have bought many of the meal prep containers from Amazon over the last five years.

They can go from freezer to microwave or just in the fridge for leftovers.

At first, we had the rectangle ones then I bought the divided rectangle ones and last I have bought the round ones.

The last ones I bought were a couple of weeks ago and they were $15.00 for 30 of them.

You can find a lot of different sizes of them here:

Meal Prep Containers

They last pretty well and its easier than finding a lid to a million Rubbermaid containers that are different sizes. Just remember if you get the same size from different places the lids will probably be different. I honestly hate playing the lid hunt game.

I love using them for leftovers and for lunches.

These work great to take meals to someone special. I use them to take meals to my mother n law and normally I take 3 meals at a time. She loves it because she never knows what she might be getting for dinner.

We eat chicken probably three times a week so I try to come up with different ideas using chicken so it does not get too boring.

Here is one of our favorite recipes.

Chicken Spaghetti:

Brown 8 – 10 chicken breast tenderloins in a little butter.

Then use that same pan to brown some onion 1/2 of a medium sized onion.

Cook the spaghetti noodles

In a bowl mix a large can of cream of mushroom soup, with one can of Rotel tomatoes, and one can of green chilis. The green chilis have this aroma that smells throughout the house and makes your mouth water.

Cut the chicken into bite size pieces stir into the spaghetti add the liquid and 2 cups of cheddar cheese.

I also top with cheddar cheese and bake in the oven for 45 minutes. I cover the pan with foil for all but the last 5 minutes.

Give this recipe a try and let me know what you think.

Unstuffed Cabbage

My husband and I both love cabbage and we really like cabbage rolls.

I hate making them they take forever to get all rolled up.

I found a recipe for unstuffed cabbage rolls and let me tell you it was super good and something different to cook. I am always looking for something different.

1 –  2 # of 80% lean ground beef

1 Cabbage chopped into chunks

Dash of salt

Black Pepper to taste

1 cup chopped up onion

2 cloves of garlic minced

8 oz tomato sauce ( if you want it moister you can add more)

8 oz diced tomatoes

1/2 – 3/4 cup beef broth for flavor

2 cups cooked rice – Optional

All you have to do is brown the ground meat, sautee the garlic and onions.

Cut your cabbage into chunks. Combine everything and heat over medium heat in a large pan until the cabbage is done 20 minutes at the most. Make sure to stir several times.

This easy 30-minute meal it is quite the time saver and very tasty.
