I also assembled snacks for lunches on Sunday night. I add a few snacks into small containers to pack in the kids’ lunch. This time I included gold fish, cheez-its, and pretzels (recent sales of course). If you read my post HERE on public school, you’ll know “Monkeyboy” attends kindergarten at our local public school 5 days a week and “LuLu” is in a local church preschool 2 days a week (hence the 7 containers). Hubby also got a bag to snack on.
You’ll notice this isn’t a months worth of meals. That doesn’t work for me, but I do like to have items cooked ahead of time for busy days and the cream of chicken soup and kidney beans will last for a few months.
One thing I learned:
I’ve always cooked one larger chicken for my crock pot chicken. This time I used 2 smaller birds from a Harris Teeter sale recently. It took much longer than I expected to skin two small birds, longer to pull the meat when cooked and it didn’t yield as much meat. I’d rather spend a little more on one larger chicken and spend less time.
