Fall is upon us and our schedules just became much busier.   Tommy has school, soccer, confirmation and homework. We in addition to monitoring Tommy’s activities have classes at Church on Tuesday and Wednesday nights as well.    I am going to need to rely on crockpot meals for Tuesdays and Wednesdays for the next 9 weeks.   The first weeks of school we have not had as healthy meals as I would like.  We even ate out a few times.   We can’t keep that up as we are  trying to become debt free!!  Time to get back to following my menu and doing food prep ahead of time!    Hope you  are off to a wonderful fall season.   I sure love fall meals….so easy to put soup into the crockpot for a quick meal.

1/2 cup water

Saturday
Oil the grill with some olive oil, then crank it so it hits like 450-500 degrees. (You don’t have to, but I threw on a cedar plank and got it smoking during this time before I put the chops on) Put the chops on and turn down the grill so it stays around 350 for the rest of the time. Close lid. (On our grill this means turn it down to about half-power for all of the burners) Grill 2 minutes, then turn (not flip, just turn), them a quarter turn and grill 2 more minutes on the same side. Close lid. Then flip and grill 2 minutes, (close lid) and then turn them a quarter turn and grill for 2 more minutes. Close lid… (8 minutes total, 4-minutes each side). Remove to a plate, wrap it all up with foil and let them rest for 5 minutes. There you go.

January  16th – 31st, 2016

Hello from frigid Minnesota!  BRRRR!   It is –2 today, but with wind chill factored in it is –21.   Not a great day to go grocery shopping, but we have to.  It has been two weeks since last shopping and we are out of a lot of things!  It never fails it is always freezing cold around my birthday!    There are a lot of carry over meals from our last menu.  As you can see, I didn’t do great with the second week of our menu.   I was working some extra hours at home to get caught up on some projects and that really cut into my evening prep time.   I usually would prep in the morning, but I was sleeping in and not having enough time to get things ready.   Hopefully I will be back on track now.   Menu planning sure does save us from eating fast food,  but does take some planning.    Hope you are staying warm and having a great weekend.
