hey there.. i just wanted to share soem ideas i had about making meals easier to to in a pinch and easier to plan out.. i made like 5 lbs of burger meat and divide it into portions and freeze them.. that way if i need chili i pull it out and throw into a crock pot.. or tacos.. i already have them meat done.. i also will cook like 4 meals in one day and freeze.. like speagetti sauce, or brocolli casarole.....all in one day and freeze it and all i have to do is add the side dishes... it make life and meal planning soo much easier...... and with 3 kids.. i need it..LOL

We may not have it all together, but together we have it all , Loving their daddy, my hubby, our soldier

To add-if I want to brown a big bunch of ground beef, I throw it in the crock pot and stir throughout the day until it's all done. So easy!

I too usually do make a batch and freeze it too and find that exceedingly helpful. I didn't know about using a crock pot though- good to know!
