If you missed my Facebook live video this morning you can watch here.
Can I just tell you how awesome I am? 🙂
I'm seriously amazing.
Like, one crazy-fantabulous-super-powered-momma-who-totally-has-got-her-ducks-in-a-row today. 🙂
Those of you who know me well know that I don't think one single bit that I'm all that awesome hardly ever, but I am feeling pretty on top of things today.
This morning as I was getting ready to make our next batch of 6 freezer meals for our Supper's Set for Summer Freezer Cooking Challenge it dawned on me that these meals didn't have to be made in the slow cooker.
I could freeze them today.
Pull them out to thaw WHENEVER I need them this summer.
Then pop them in the crockpot.
Or, bake them in the oven.
Or, saute them on the stovetop.
Or, holler at my sweet husband to throw those chicken legs right on the grill.
I. am. a.
So in just over an hour this morning I tackled another six meals.
Another six nights my family won't be eating PB&J.
Another week I won't have to plan a massive trip to the grocery store.
And best of all I handed myself a serious dose of sanity to help survive summertime.
WHY DID IT TAKE ME 20 YEARS OF COOKING TO FIGURE THIS OUT?
I'm thinking right now I'll do this every three months, because now that I realize there are other ways to cook these meals besides only the crockpot, it just makes sense to get my grocery shopping and menu planning out of the way so I can go right ahead and enjoy life.
(I love my crockpot, but my family goes a little nuts if I do it way too many nights in a row . . . but by doing this most of my “cooking” is done ~ I just have to add sides and get the meals done.)
