++10 meals in 1 hour++

This week has been CRAZY!! But I found some great deals on meat and decided to do some freezer cooking. I purchased about 18 lbs. of chicken, 7 lbs. of hamburger and freezer bags.
I placed all but 7 chicken breasts in the crock pot and cooked on high for about 4 hours. After the chicken was cooked and cooled I spent about a half hour cutting, cubing, bagging and labeling the chicken. I than cooked half of the hamburger meat with a little dried onion, made patty's with the other half, bagged it and labeled it all. It took me less than an hour and about $25 for all the meals. Here is what I now have in my freezer:
1. - 2 chicken breasts marinated for grilling
2. - 1.5 lbs. cooked hamburger - Taco's
3. - 1.5 lbs. cooked hamburger - Mexican Manicotti
4. - 5 raw chicken breasts mixed with ingredients for Creamy Italian Crock-pot Chicken (see older post for recipe)
5 & 6. - 8 hamburger patties - stacked on wax paper ready for grilling
7. - cooked and cubed chicken - Chicken Enchilada's
8. - cooked and shredded chicken - Haystacks
9. - cooked and shredded chicken mixed with taco seasoning - Chicken Quesadilla's
10. - cooked and cubed chicken - Chicken Spaghetti
