Slow Cooker Freezer Kits – Reposted June 8, 2020

July 29th, 2019 – Update: The grocery list is incorrect. You need 2 bags of peppers and onions and only 1 bag of mixed veggies.

So what are slow cooker freezer kits?  Basically you have everything you need to fix a meal in the slow cooker ready to go in the freezer.  There might be a few items that you might need to add to the slow cooker on the day you cook the meal.  Other than that, everything else is ready to go.

Slow Cooker Freezer Kits – An Update

Currently there are 15 freezer slow cooker kits in my freezer. It’s so easy to pull out a kit in the evening and then drop it in the slow cooker in the morning.

About a month ago, I put together 12 freezer slow cooker kits.  Then I shared my slow cooker freezer meal plan.

Having those kits in the freezer has been helpful because I ended up getting sick.  It was easy to put the food in the slow cooker and then set the slow cooker to cook the food.  There was not much thinking about what we were going to eat for dinner.  Believe you me, Hubby is happy to have dinner.

Slow Cooker Sweet Potatoes (Gluten Free)

This weekend was the Wee One’s first Boy Scout camp out.  His camp out was located 20 minutes from our house so it was not that far away.  He’s always been our homebody.  When he was in Cub Scouts, he would be the first one in the tent when there was any hint of darkness.  He would not emerge from his tent until it was daylight outside.

Freezer Meals (Day 26)

I am behind with the 31 Days of Slow Cooking.  Last week was crazy busy with parent teacher conferences on Monday and Wednesday nights.  I did not get home from work until almost 8:30 on those nights.  Then I had activities with the boys on Tuesday and Thursday evenings so I was gone on those nights.  Then my Hubby and I went on a weekend trip to Louisville, Kentucky so I was busy during the weekend.

Peach Cobbler (Day 25)

peach-cobbler

Welcome to Day 25 of 31 Days of Slow Cooking.

We are almost to the end of this series.

Since Halloween is next Monday, I’m going to play This or That – Halloween version.

Chocolate Candy or Fruity?

I have always said since I was born near Hershey Park, I must have chocolate in my blood.

Witches or Vampires?

Witches, hands down – Especially if they are good witches.

Trick or Treat?

Treat – Yum!

Halloween Party or Scary Movie?

I dislike scary movies, so Halloween party would be preferred.

Skeletons or Zombies?

Skeletons

Trick or Treat or Hand out candy?

When the boys were younger, I would go trick or treating.  Now that they are older and go out on their own, I hand out glow sticks not candy.

Hay Ride or Corn Maze?

I seem to get so lost in corn mazes so I prefer hay rides.

Scary Costume or Funny Costume?

I like funny costumes.

Pumpkin Seeds or Pumpkin Pie?

I prefer pumpkin seeds.  The Imaginative One loves pumpkin pie more than pumpkin seeds.

Bottle Feed a Baby Zombie or Walk Alone Through a Dark Forest?

I wouldn’t want to do either of those two choices.  However, I would prefer to walk alone.

Bats or Black Cats?

Bats

Pumpkin Spice or Hot Chocolate?

I love pumpkin spice.

Celebrate in your neighborhood or at the mall?

We celebrate in my neighborhood.

Cashew Chicken (Day 22)y

cashew-chicken

Welcome to Day 22 of 31 Days of Slow Cooking.

Your pets least likable character trait.

It’s thundering outside.  The rain is pouring.  Suddenly lightening lit up the sky.

No one’s home but the dog.  He needs comfort from the scary storm outside.  So what he does he do?

Does he run and hide in the bedrooms of the family members?

No, he decides to run through the doggy door into the backyard where it’s wet, loud, and dark and then bright when lightening lights up the sky.

He goes to his secret hole in the fence that no one can find.to patch up.

Then he runs to grandma’s house.

Either he finds a little hole in the fence and runs into her backyard to her doggy dog.  He escapes the bad storm.

Or he stands at the side door whimpering until someone lets him.

Meanwhile, his owners get a call from grandma telling them that their dog is at her house.

This is one of our dog’s least likable trait.  We can’t believe that he doesn’t run and hide during thunderstorms.  Instead he will run over to my mother-in-law’s house.

When we leave for the day, we have to check the weather before leaving.  If the weather calls for rain, the doggy door will be shut so he doesn’t run to grandma’s house.

 

It’s early in the morning.  People are trying to sleep.  All of the sudden you start to hear squawking coming from the living room.Or you hear “Nich-o-las,” “”Get off the Computer,” and “Beak Bump.”

You can not sleep because the bird is insistent someone come and pay attention to him.

Then there is the mess all around the stand.  He thinks there are imaginary birds sitting on the ground.  So he throws food to those imaginary birds.

This is my son’s bird’s least likable trait.  He likes people to pay attention to him.  If they don’t, he will either start squawking or talking up a storm until someone pays attention to him.

 

What is your pet(s)’s least likable traits?
