October #3- home things and a little freezer cooking

Hello everyone
It was a such a busy summer and I never planted my big zinnia bed but we had a few zinnias come up as volunteers. 
When I cleaned up the flower beds this week,  I pulled the last of them and clipped off the best flowers for an indoor arrangement.  

For a quick lunch, I made grilled cheese sandwiches.  Mine is just cheese and my husband’s also has a ham slice.  
Grilled cheese are so good and convenient.  
I think a lot of people in the fast food drive throughs  would be better off to just go home and have grilled cheese instead of burgers and chicken.  

I did a little bulk, freezer cooking today. 
I put 2 beef roasts in the big crockpot and a tray of Aldi chicken breasts in the other.  
I added a little water and cooked both until they were tender. 

The chicken was done in about 4 hours and the roasts took about 6 hours. 
I shredded the meat and bagged it for the freezer 
This will be used for chicken salad, chicken pot pie, vegetable beef soup, hot roast beef  sandwiches, beef fried rice - 
Lots of yummy and quick meals! 

Speaking of Aldi,  I went there twice this week.  
I found bath towel sets for my daughter when they stage their bathrooms as they ready their home to sell. 
I also bought some yummy and huge strawberries there.  


I started this week still feeling poorly mostly from my fall when walking our dog.  
I did a few things but I rested a lot this week and thankfully I am feeling much better! 
Rest can do amazing things 

Hope you all have had a very good week

All that looks and sound delicious. And, it will surely make life easier. I want to put a hen in the crockpot and have Tommy take off all the meat for chicken and dressing. Thanks for reminding me!

I don't like the actual day when I do bulk cooking but I love the result at a later date when I need a quick meal.
Your freezer stash looks great and will really be enjoyed later!

Grilled cheese sandwiches are the best, aren't they?

Glad you are feeling better---it is hard to rest, but it sure helps!

Nice freezer stash---you will love it when it's time to create meals. My Aldi had strawberries, but they didn't look very nice like yours...and they are sourced from here in Florida (Plant City).

I keep waiting for them to bring back the Autumn Glory apples---theeee best! I thought they would come in September...of course you ask an employee and they know nothing :)

I love a grilled cheese sandwich once in awhile. I usually put some baby spinach on mine or a slice of fresh tomato.

Great idea to cook meat in bulk in the slow cookers and then shred and freeze for later use!

Your chicken and roast will be very tasty when needed for the dishes. Saved alot of time with that prepping!

We enjoy grilled cheeses with tomato soup. I was sick a few weeks ago, and that was supper a couple of nights. We buy tomato soup with roasted red peppers, then I doctor it up with a splash of worcestershire sauce and milk. Yum.

I like to prep and freeze recipe ingredients like your shredded meats. Also, cooked ground beef, taco meat, meatballs, rice, and beans. I think I'll be making some soups this week, too.
