Cooking Day at Mom’s

Today was cooking day at mom’s.  I started by stopping by the grocery store on my way up and filling the cart to the brim and then some.  I think I had just about every meat in the meat department.

Then I hauled it all in and asked myself, “why did I do this?”  So I opened a diet coke, turned up the air conditioning (mom has the heat on and it’s 85 degrees out) and got to work.

Four hours and a big mess later, I filled her freezer with enough meals for a few months.  She continues to love these meals and the convenience of just popping one in each morning.  Jeri Ann and Lorraine came to visit and she insisted they go look at all the meals in the freezer and read all the new recipes. I am sure they were thrilled.

 I was exhausted!!!  Oh well no cooking for 2 months.

One of the new recipes that we tried this month

BBQ Beef Sandwiches

1 cup chopped onions

1 cup ketchup

1 cup BBQ sauce

1 cup water

2 TBS vinegar

2 TBS worcestershire sauce

2 TBS brown sugar

1 tsp chili powder

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1/2 tsp garlic powder

3 to 4 pound bonless  chuck roast

Combine all ingredients except roast in slow cooker. When well mixed, add roast.

Cover and cook on high 6 to 7 hours.

Remove roast. Shred meat and return to sauce.  Serve on buns.

I just put all ingredients in ziplock and froze.
