Tired of watching your money run out the door?
So am I!
So, I took the time to figure out how to use my crock pot at shows. In addition to cooking meals in my crockpot, I also make fresh sweet tea every morning at the hotel. Those cold brew tea bags are a blessing! It brings me a great deal of comfort to give my family a cooked meal at least once a day!
Here are some of my money saving meals that I use while on the road at cattle shows. Simply figure your meals out in advance, make your lists, pack the slow cooker, a few plastic spoons, slow cooker bags, and the utensils to eat with. Then buy your food at the grocery store as you need it.
Chicken & Black Bean Stoup - Cooks in 4 hours in the crockpot. Serve it with tortilla chips or tortillas
Cowboy Stew - Make this stew in advance and freeze it. I made this last fall before NAILE and it stayed frozen in a cooler in my car for three days! Then warm it in the crockpot.
Pepsi Pork Chops - Throw in a can of potatoes and you have a meal!
Smoked Pork Chops with Hashbrown Casserole - So easy and so delicious! This is one of my family's favorites!
Cheesy Hamburger Burritos - Brown your hamburger in advance and freeze it. Then throw it in the cooler and keep it on ice. The meat will stay frozen for 2 or 3 days.
I hope these recipes save you & your family a little money. I'll have another update this fall on more meals to make a shows. Oh - and if you want to know how to make the sweet tea, drop me an email. I'll gladly share my secret!
