Crock Pot Green Bean Casserole

Thank you to the National Frozen & Refriegerated Food Association for sponsoring today’s recipe. I am excited to share with you how I use frozen and refrigerated food to make holiday planning easier!

This year my goal is to make Thanksgiving as calm and stress free as possible. I am planning on making a ton of crock pot recipes including this Crock Pot Green Bean Casserole!

One of the great things about this Crock Pot Green Bean Casserole is you can get all of the ingredients ahead of time so you are not worrying about running to the store last minute. You can pick up some bags of frozen green beans when you find them on sale and have them ready to go for Thanksgiving.

I try and stock up my freezer in the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving with all of the foods I may need. I love being able to get everything while it is on sale and not having to worry about it going bad.  The freezer becomes my good friend during the holidays and really year round. I freeze a little bit of everything so we can enjoy it year round.

If you love ham and turkey this time of the year is perfect to stock up on a few. I stick them in my freezer when I can grab them on sale so I have them a few months down the road when they are back to full price.

I recently learned from the National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Association that the freezer aisle has over 3700 different varieties of foods. These foods are frozen at the height of ripeness.
