I wanted to share with you all something I tried out recently. I got the idea from a friend, and it’s quite brilliant. They’re pre-prepared crockpot freezer meals. This is perfect for everyone, but especially students like us who are in school literally all day and are just exhausted. Once we get home, cooking is the last thing we want to do.
The website I used had a printable grocery list with everything you would need to make eight crock pot meals separated into the category in which department you would find the ingrediants. All of the meals looked delicious, so my fiance and I decided to make all eight, and it only took a little over an hour. We split each recipe up so we each could have one bag of each meal, and it was more than enough for the both of us.
Today I made the first of the lot, it was beef stew one of my favorites. I thawed it out in the refriderator last night and this morning threw it in the crockpot until I would get home tonight to eat it. I didn’t realize how nice it is getting home from a long day at school with dinner already ready to eat right when I walk in the door. This could quite possibly be one of the best ideas I was ever given.
I suggest everyone try it you can find recipes online, Pinterest or try out the ones I made at SixSistersStuff.com. Another great thing, Now I don’t have to worry about what to pack for lunch tomorrow, because I plan on packing my left overs! You can also free up that time you normally would have spent cooking and use it for some extra studying time … or not. 😉
