Last weekend, I made 7 slow cooker freezer meals plus a whole chicken in the crockpot in just one hour. We tried two of those meals this week. Both were wonderful and beyond easy. But, I’ve confirmed once again that I’m a meal hoarder!
Once I get those meals in the freezer, I don’t want to use them. They’re like meal insurance for a rainy day. I did use two of them this week though. Which makes me feel like I’m moving through them too fast.
We had Hoisin Chicken in the Slow Cooker. I opened the bag and dumped the frozen chicken and sauce contents in the crock and turned it on. So easy.
We also had Mediterranean Beef in the Slow Cooker. I thawed it enough to get it out of the bag and turned it on high. I served this over mashed potatoes and we all loved it.
Details on these meals will be in the September Weekly Meal Plans.
We also had a new favorite for the second time. The boys had youth group on Wednesday night and the left early to play a round of frisbee golf before heading to the church. The rest of us had Baked Chicken Tacos. These are so easy to fix and so good. The recipe will be coming to the blog on Tuesday.
Friday night, our youngest son celebrated his 15th birthday a few days early. He had friends over and I made a cheater version of Stromboli. I used canned pizza crust to make it easy. The stromboli was a hit with all of them
I also got another Stitch Fix box earlier this week. I was surprised to see that it was my 7th box. I’ve been doing this for a while, I guess! I love Stitch Fix, because it’s a fun way for me to add items to my closet without actually having to go shopping. I tend to dress in the same Walmart or Target t-shirts. And even though I’d like something different, if I’m left on my own in a store I come out with a few more white t-shirts.
Stitch Fix sends me a box of clothes styled for me. As I’ve used the service, I’ve tweaked my profile. Most recently, I changed my fit preference from “fitted” to “loose”. And that really helped me end up with a box of things I loved. Here’s what I kept from this fix:
I’ve already worn the casual top on the left. It’s light weight and perfect for the fall-like weather we’ve been having. The dress and the necklace both seem like versatile pieces. They also sent another dress that I really liked, but decided it was too much money and I really don’t need two new dresses. And they sent another shirt that I loved the color of, but was cut lower in the neckline than I like. Those both went back in the pre-paid envelope.
