I sit down with the supermarket ad that comes out in Wednesday's paper, and since I don't go shopping until Saturday, I have plenty of time to create my budget meal plan for the coming week.
The Hormel Compleats slow cooker roast beef on high and Gravy meal is an inexpensive meal that microwaves in a minute and a half and requires no refrigeration. I spend most of my workdays traveling around town visiting clients. Taking a lunch to work requires either using a cooler, going in early to put my lunch in the refrigerator, eating food that does not require refrigeration, or eating out. None of these options were particularly attractive, but I usually ended up just taking along a box of crackers or some similar bland food or eating out. Though there are other products on the market, the food pictured on the package of Hormel's Compleats looked so good I decided to give it a try.
Examine the control features such as the programmable timer, so you can set it and forget it, and the number heat settings. They should range from high so you can cook the food fast for daytime meals, to very slow cooker roast beef for all day cooking and keeping it hot without burning.
Finally, remember to connect with others during the cold months. Spending time with people you love and enjoy can really help bring your moods up. Playing games inside, watching movies, reading books out loud, or just sitting around and talking will all help you relax and enjoy yourself.
For your main dishes, there are choices from meat, fish, and poultry; and if it is a cut of meat that needs extra cooking to be tender, you can fix a slow cooker beef with added vegetables.
slow cooker roast beef au jus you have made up your week's meal plan, the "bonus" is that you can put it into a notebook, and since most markets tend to have many of the same items on sale every 4-6 weeks, you can pull out a prior meal plan and use it again when that happens!!
No matter which variation you try you will be pleased at the ease it takes to prepare it and the transportability the Deli Creations Hot Sandwich Melts are. I enjoy them and hope you do to.
