Freezer to slow cooker meals are my favorite. I can devote one afternoon to meal preparation and make enough dinners to feed my family for a week. Double or triple it to make extra meals to take to a friend or neighbor in need, or to save for one of those too-busy-to-cook weeks.
Print out the following recipes and laminate them (you can use clear packing tape if you don’t have a laminator) so you can easily reuse the instructions over and over. Fill a gallon-size zipper bag with the contents of each meal and tape the instructions to the outside. Move a bag from the freezer to your refrigerator the night before you plan to cook it to let it thaw overnight, then place the contents of the bag (along with any additional ingredients) in your slow cooker the next day.
IN THE SLOW COOKER: Slice an onion and lay rings on the bottom of a greased slow cooker. Add ribs; pour 1/2 cup apple juice over ribs. cook on low 8-10 hours.
