6 Recipes w/ Shopping List
Today’s Treat is 6 Crock Pot / Slow Cooker Recipes which include a Grocery Shopping list! I’ve made and tasted some of them and the other ones just look good so I’ll be making them this week. This printable is simple yet goes a long way to help with meal planning. Julie B Beck stated..
“‘Self-reliance means using all of our blessings from Heavenly Father to care for ourselves and our families and to find solutions for our own problems.”
My # 1 Problem, keeping me from caring for my family: Dinner! I seriously don’t like cooking, I’m no good at it and never have time for it. But I have a small family and my husband works hard for us so we can buy groceries, so I NEED to make dinner using those groceries otherwise eating out is going to cost the whole family a lot more and we don’t have that kind of cash.
Recipes included are:
No Time to Cook Chicken 0,0 0
Slow Cooker Pizza 0,0 0
I’ve tried to do menus in the past but they never work for me so I am trying it again this year. :) I downloaded them from AllRecipes.com so they aren’t designed to be fancy or cute, just practical. I really want to make this a talent because I know cooking has got to be one of those things that can be learned and therefore I want to learn it and eventually I can consider it a talent, depending on how well I can do it, right? Right now cooking is just an essential duty or chore for me, so we’ll be working on it.
AllRecipes.com (free service) really makes it easy, you pick out the meals you want for your menu and add them to your grocery list, go shopping, then prepare your meals. For those who are total chefs, this may not be awesome for you, or you probably have your own monthly menu planned out already. So this won’t help you, but maybe the sisters you Visit Teach need this. I picked Slow Cooker/Crock Pot Meals because I love mine and refuse to cook any other way because I am convinced it is faster than the standard cooking. There are 6 meals, 1 for each day of the week except Sunday of course because you will have a lot of left overs, I promise!

Let me know if you try any of these recipes or give these out, I’d like to know what you think. I was thinking for next month to create a menu planner which you can laminate and put little velcro dots on but didn’t know how you all felt about menu planning and things. To me it’s part of the whole self reliance thing and doing things to help your family and yourself to be organized too.
