I’m going to keep it real simple this week. Cooking and working in the kitchen is still a challenge for me. Thankfully my 2 youngest children have been great helpers. I try and do what I can because I know it is good for my hand to use it as much as I am able. It just takes me a lot longer to do basic things. I decided to utilize my crockpot as much as possible. I figured each meal will last the 4 of us 2 nights. So there are 3 days of leftovers.
Crockpot pork roast made w/ my home canned pickled cabbage (this is a super easy one that I will share soon), mashed potatoes ( I bought dehydrated instant mashed potatoes from Costco for the first time in over 20 years! LOL .. the ingredients on the box were simple: potatoes, butter and salt.. I figured in times like these it is nice to have ), salad
Crockpot Island Chicken (this recipe is floating around in my head… if it turns out I’ll share it :), brown rice, salad
Crockpot Italian sausage and peppers (this is a freezer meal and the recipe makes enough for 2 meals, I’ll have my daughter do this one as there is too much cutting of veggies for my hand at this point and we will put one meal in the freezer), buttered noodles, salad
Tomato soup (I make it with my home canned tomato puree), ham & veggie wraps
