Plan ahead cooking- Pinned it, Did it

I have a HUGE surgery coming up, in about two weeks. I am pretty nervous but incredibly excited. I know that it's going to be a ton of work for my hubby to take care of our 4 kids, work, a house, and me for those weeks so I wanted to do as much as I could to make things easier for him. If you're on Pintrest you have likely seen the pins related to crock pot meals. Well, I did it! I'm pretty excited! We've been doing this for a while now but today I finished making 2 and a half weeks worth of meals for the big surgery day!

I started with a list of meals I wanted to make: Chicken Wild Rice Soup, Beef Fajitas, Vegetable Beef Soup, Taco Meat,  Pot Roast, Turkey Breast, Omelets, Mini Corn Dog Muffins, and I even threw in some chocolate chip cookies to boot! Once I figured out the meals I made a list of items I needed and purchased them.
The grocery man came today with my order and I laid it all out on my counter and started to wash, cut, peel, chop and brown.

I tossed each necessary ingredient into a gallon sized ziploc bag and labeled them with the meal, temperature to heat and time to heat. It took me about 3 1/2 hours to get everything into their bags and another 45 minutes to clean up. But I know for a fact it will be well worth it!
