Fun Frugal Website
One of the fun “jobs” that writing this blog requires is to peruse dozens of different websites, blogs, magazines, etc. to find great information to share with you. One site that I’ve discovered and enjoy is The Lean Green Family. There she wrote a post entitled frugal meal planning tips for busy families. That definitely includes us caregivers! Her suggestions were great. I loved her idea for how to save on pizza (perfect for grandkids! ), and she also introduced me, and now you, to another very interesting concept using crockpots – A Year of Slow Cooking. And happily, when she converted her site from Blogspot to regular WordPress, she copied that post over.
Recipes for Our Crockpots
One of her posts explains how we can save money by using crockpots more often. That is so true! Crockpots are a great way to make good use of a variety of foods, including some that might not taste as good in the oven. Just as important, it’s a wonderful time saver. I can start a meal in the crockpot in the morning. Then I can ignore it until I’m ready to eat at night! So when I’m staying busy running errands, playing tag with grandkids, or working, I can still enjoy a delicious hot meal. I have to confess, I haven’t used crockpots in quite a while. I’d forgotten how handy they can be. But after looking at her recipes, I’m going to go find it and give some of them a try. I think I’ll start with the Crockpot Bacon-Wrapped Cornish Game Hens. My mother would love them!
