Didn’t your momma always ask you, “If all your friends jumped off a bridge, would you do it too”?
You’re supposed to answer no, by the way…
Well you know what, sometimes following the lead is good. I’m jumping on the crock pot bandwagon.. well, to be clear, I’ve always been on the crockpot bandwagon but I’m going to do the crockpot frozen meal challenge. Actually I think I just made that up, but that’s how all great things start, isn’t it?
I’m going to do a series of posts over the next month or so, starting with this one, which we’ll dub the “Proposal Post” and over the next month I’m going to plan, buy, prepare, cook and (the best part) taste 4 different prepared ahead frozen crockpot meals. Pinterest is my go-to and I’ve found a few recipes I want to try, but if any of my followers want to throw out some suggestions or take votes on the ones I listed below, I’m up for it. Who knows, if I get enough recipes maybe I’ll make more. I’m trying to stick to the healthy side so don’t give me any creamy, cheesy goodness to make, because I might just cave.
Some recipes I’ve found so far that are on my maybe list are;
- Lemon Chicken
- Chicken and Spinach
- Chicken and Sweet Potato stew
- Pineapple Salsa Chicken
- Beef and Broccoli
- BBQ Chicken
- Chicken Fajitas
- Tex Mex Shredded Chicken
- Teriyaki Chicken
- Meatball stew
- Sticky BBQ Meatballs
- Chicken and Rice
- Italian Chicken
- Veggie and Beef stew
- Beef Chili
- Pulled Pork
So I guess that was more than I was initially going for but I’ll narrow it down and once I figure out all the logistics maybe I’ll bump it up to 6 meals, we’ll see… I’m only cooking for one so I’m hoping one pot will be leftovers for a week. So in the coming weeks you can expect the following posts from me, its a promise;
- The Proposal Post (that’s this one)
- The Plan Post (where I tell you all the meals I’m going to make and my shopping list)
- The Prepare Post (this will be the crazy part where I share my shopping trip, all the food that I know have in my house and the preparing and separating)
- The Pot 1-? Posts (Recipe and evaluation of meal 1-?)
- The Post-Pots Posts (the final eval)
Like all my P’s? Let the crockpot challenge begin! Make sure you leave me some suggestions or votes! And maybe I’ll pass on this challenge and make it an actual thing!
