Carol: Have you ever had a “mini” freezer cooking session? They are great when you are short on time. Kroger has boneless skinless chicken breast for $1.88 a pound. They also have a buy one get one free deal on steaks and roasts in our region. It’s a 2 week sale so I can split up my cooking session over several weeks instead of doing it all on one day. I find this method helpful when we have a full weekend schedule. I can usually handle making 3 or 4 recipes in one evening after everything settles down.

Tonight I made 3 recipes of Marinade for Grilled Chicken Salad, 2 recipes of Orange Beef and Vegetable Stir Fry, and a batch of Zucchini Carrot Muffins (I have to keep up with the zucchini crop!).

Next shopping trip I think I will make some meals for the slow cooker…
