Meal Plan Friday: 7/29/2016

I have been using the extra heat of summer as an excuse to slack off lately on some things, including some of my posts and some of my cooking. Oops! In an effort to combat this crazy heat (heat index over 110 multiple days in a row!) I have decided to make an effort to include more crock pot meals in my Meal Plan Friday this week.

If you’re not familiar with what that heat index feels like, well our poor little a/c unit has trouble keeping up. We have our unit set for 75 during the day but it has trouble staying below 79 or 80. You walk outside and start sweating. You come inside and you cannot cool off fast enough. It is not pretty weather, at all. Add in heating up your house with a stove or oven and just forget it!

I believe we have some reprieve in the forecast for next week, which I plan to use to get poor little C outside. The kid is deprived and needs the sunshine. And I know after some good outside time that I won’t feel like cooking once four and five o’clock roll around. That means it’s time to bring out the old slow cooker and let it do all the work for me. And maybe a little of Mr. H manning his grill for some quick dinners.
