Planning meals saves money, stress and time. It has been so hot that we have been eating crock pot meals a lot. Chili, roast in the crock pot, then stew with the leftovers in the crock pot. I even picked up a Pizza in town last night. This morning was cool so I took the opportunity to refill my freezer meals. Two weeks ago we were suppose to go to a family do but I had a sick kid so I was very thankful when I opened the freezer and found a loaf of bread, a bag of muffins and a lasagna. It sure was nice to have grilled cheese sandwiches and lasagna and muffins for the weekend since I was busy caring for my kiddo. This morning I baked chocochip banana muffins and blueberry muffins. I will freeze most of the muffins in bags of 6 for a quick snack or even a breakfast at the cottage. I made spaghetti sauce for supper and split it in half and layered a lasagna for the freezer. I am going to make a pasta salad tonight with the extra noodles from supper. This weekend will be hamburgers and hotdogs since I will be away and Daddy is cooking. The salad will go good with that. I also have chicken fingers and fries in the freezer for another quick meal. I have some porkchops for the BBQ next week and some chicken legs for the crockpot. Since it will be another hot week I am glad I have a plan. Good luck to you all avoiding the heat.
P.S. The pulled pork was so easy and good. Pork tenderloin and 1 can of root beer. Cook in the crock pot on low for 7 hours. Drain off rootbeer and shread meat. Put back in crock pot with 2 cups of your favorite BBQ sauce. Mix and eat with buns. It was a hit with the company.
