I’ve got 8 weeks to go, God willing, until the baby arrives. And I’m realizing how much I need to utilize my crock pot more over the next 2 months. So, I’m going to try and join up with Debbie @ Dining with Debbie for Crock Pot Wednesdays. If you need some more crock pot ideas, head on over to see what everyone else is making. 🙂
The meal I picked this week, I’m also going to make for Meal Makin’ Mamas. Some of you have been asking what MMM is, so here’s an explanation. A friend of mine started this group out with 6 participating. Each participant makes 6 of the same meal for the freezer, keeping within the guidelines of spending $5-$8 on the meal. Then, we all come together once a month and swap meals (preferably healthy meals). The idea is that you make 6 of the same meal, but come home with 6 different meals in your freezer. I can not tell you how much this group has helped me with my meals. There are currently 5 of us in the group (anyone want to join?) and somehow we never end up making the same things. If you’ve got some friends who you know would want to do this, I highly recommend starting your own group. In fact, we were down to 4 last month, so we decided to make 3 each of 2 different meals and swap them. It really doesn’t matter how many you have as long as you can make it work for you. 🙂
Since I’m having the baby in December I’m making 2 meals to give out in November. Then I can still receive the other meals from everyone else in December and they’ll have already gotten their meal from me. I thought it sounded like a good idea. 🙂
Any ways, one of the meals I stumbled across is French Dip Roast Beef for the Crock Pot. Doesn’t that just sound like something you’d want cooking all day in the crock pot? Yum! You could also dump it in your slow cooker early Sunday morning, set it on high, and you have roast beef sandwiches when you get home from church! I have a feeling that we might end up having these once a month. 🙂
Incidentally, I was able to get my roasts for $1.99 a pound at Super Target this week. So if you need a roast… 🙂
That’s all for this week. Thanks for stopping by and have a flavorful week!
