I love Pioneer Woman -- there is nothing she makes that doesn't look super delicious!

I finally had time to do a 3 hour freezer cooking session last weekend -- it's been months and I'm SO relieved to have the freezer restocked. I HATE cooking on weeknights. Now I'm all into happy cooking mode again! These are big slow cooker meals for 5-6 people and follow a theme of recipes to maximize on bulk produce purchases (like a huge bag of Bell Peppers) :

I made 2 big batches each plus I did 1 extra in a smaller single size for Grandpa -- he has a mini slow cooker and will be very happy when I bring these over. He does't really cook for himself too often.

Beef Stroganoff - 2
Bacon Cheeseburger Soup - 2
Beef & Black Bean Chiil
Chicken Chili - 2
Chicken Cacciatori - 2
Chicken Tikka Masala - 2

Going to do a mini-sessions in the coming days with Pork and maybe some marinades. The do some double meals on regular cooking nights. That ought to get us set through the Holidays. Planning on doing cookie doughs with the kids this weekend if we can pull it off.

(And I threw the ripe bananas in the freezer while I was at it!) :)

Could I please have the Chicken Tikka Masala recipe? Thank you.
