My work schedule this year has changed quite a bit requiring a minimum of 45 hours in the building (and I am having a lot of trouble keeping that down to 50), and a start time that has me getting up before 5 am. And then, there is the work I have to bring home... So, this has resulted in me eating a lot of convenience food. I mean I might make something for the blog or cook all weekend for the blog, but week night dinners were becoming, well, not real food. So, I went in search of a solution and have found quite a few websites with freezable meals that have been very helpful. Freezable meals that can be cooked in a slow cooker or crock pot have been even more helpful. My husband does not have nearly as early a schedule as I do, so if I put together slow cooker meals and put them in the freezer, he can then take them out put them in the slow cooker, and they are ready when I get home. And, the best part is that they are real food. The goal is fewer chemicals. I have absolutely no scientific evidence of this and don't even know if there is any out there, but I weigh less when I eat real food. I have done the calorie counts on what I was eating and what I am eating now. On paper they are very similar, some days I am even eating a good bit more, but in the two weeks since we have started this, I have lost over 3 pounds with no other changes. Could be just a coincidence, but it is working for me right now, and that makes me happy.
I found the original version of this Curry Chicken at Mama and Baby Love, but of course, I have to change everything, so you are going to get my version. Next time, I think I will change it even more. I don't really like the baby carrots in it. I have made several of these meals, and the baby carrots just are not good to me after they have been frozen, so next time I am going to cut up my own carrots. And, yes I have read about the possible evils of baby carrots. I might change up the other vegetables too next time, and will update this to include those changes if I do. Don't get me wrong, they were good, just not what I am used to with Curry Chicken.
