Hello Fall!! I'm ready for you! Here in the Pacific Northwest we have enjoyed a stellar summer. I think I can count on one hand how many days were under 75 degrees this year. This is rare in the PNW, often June is rainy, grey and mid-60's at best and we don't see the beginning of summer until July 5th (the day AFTER everyone has their parties and BBQ's for the 4th). Before we know it, the rain and 60 degree weather turns into rain and 45 degree fall weather and we know fall has officially arrived.
This year we played hard and enjoyed every sunny minute of Summer. Now that the kids are back in school, football is on TV, leaves are beginning to fall and we are ready for Autumn!
I went grocery shopping the other day and decided I needed to do a little food prep for these busy school nights. Instead of shooting from the hip with my grocery list (which I usually do), this time I did a little planning instead. I have a board on Pinterest where I have saved a bunch of crock pot freezer recipes. I found several that sounded good and had easy ingredients and started writing out my list. What took about an hour on a Sunday afternoon just saved me SEVERAL hours in 9 upcoming meals!
