Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

“Invest In a Slow Cooker”

That's perfect for preparing the types of meals that can be easily frozen and reheated later. You can buy large cuts of meat when they're on sale, cook them in a slow cooker with different seasonings, divide them, and freeze for easy portions of pulled meats to thaw for sandwiches or other dishes.
