Now begins my busy months of April and May so I will be cooking ahead to save time. I drive for my daughter's drumline competitions so I will be gone every weekend but one this month. Make ahead meals are a necessity so we avoid eating fast food.
Cooking Ahead To Save Time
Sunday: Large crock pot of spaghetti sauce is brewing. I needed to use some canned tomatoes before they expire so we will have spaghetti and salad with some clearance cheese bread I picked up at the market.
Monday: Crock pot shepherd's pie since I am helping my daughter finish moving. Fresh fruit salad.
Tuesday: Leftovers from Sunday and Monday.
Wednesday: Dinner with in-laws
Thursday: Shredded chicken tacos. Crock pot shredded chicken will serve us two nights. Simple Spanish Rice
Friday: Big bowl of creamy tuna mac salad will be made today for today and tomorrow when I am away. Cheesy squash with the first squash from the garden.
Saturday: Tuna mac and cut up fruit and veggies with homemade Ranch dressing dip.
