Freezer Meal Group - December 2011

Now that I have caught up on my WLB posts, I will catch up on Freezer Meal Group posts. First I will get all of my recipes posted and then I will post the recipes from other group members. I won't be posting all the recipes though because I was sort of a slacker face who was extremely disorganized and misplaced some of them. I will post all the ones I have not misplaced.
