Normally I wouldn't start off the week with such gusto, but this week has started off really well so far. Fingers crossed that it stays that way. Yesterday we had a great time at church and relaxing as a family. Then we got to babysit for some new friends in our church! YAY!
On the agenda for today is making a whole chicken in the crock-pot. I love using whole chickens. You can get so much more from them than just one meal! We often have enough for 2 meals. So tonight's meal will be crock-pot chicken, I will then use the juices and bones to make stock in the crock pot overnight tonight. Then in the morning I will skim off the stuff and have some great stock to put in the freezer for a later use. So not only have I gotten 2 meals but I have also gotten a VERY flavorful stock that I know what is in it! WOOHOOO!
I will let you know tomorrow how it went. :) With Eater approaching I am starting to think about different crafts and treats and recipes that I can post for you all. I have a few ideas brewing so I will let you know how those turn out. :)
Today I am going to do an inventory of meals in my freezer as well. I am going to keep a running tally of what I put in and when so that I know what I need to make and how much of it to make.
Do you make freezer meals? What are your secrets? How do you keep it all organzied? I would love to hear all about your freezer meal adventures. :)
Have a good Monday everyone!
