Quick & Easy Recipes for Frenzied SLPs {Linky}

Big thank you to Speech2U & Speech Sprouts for doing all the work for the linky! And to Laura from All Y'all Need for whippin' up the graphic! These ladies are amaze-balls!
We've all had times when we're just too...well...frenzied to come up with a good meal plan. Being the mom of 3 boys, I've had my share of those days! Things don't get too frenzied around my house now that 2 of the boys are out of the house, but I still have some quick recipes up my sleeve!
1.  Get your son to cook for you.
2. Frozen chicken strips, mac & cheese (from a box), and salad. Of course I bake the strips, then put them on top of a salad, which is from a bag because I just don't have time to dice & slice.

3. This takes some thinking ahead, but it's well worth it! Get a pork roast and put it in the crockpot for 8 hours on low. (You don't have to put anything in the crockpot with it. Trust me.) When you get home from work, shred the roast, mix some barbecue sauce (we like Sweet Baby Ray's), put it in a pan covered with aluminum foil, and pop it in a 250° oven for about 30 minutes to an hour. Or, however long you need to keep it in there for it to heat up. Put on hamburger buns, fix a quick side, and you're all set.
One of the teachers at one of my schools & I used to change quick supper ideas all the time. She gave me the barbecue idea...I couldn't believe no one had ever told me about it before!

  1. We were both thinking crockpot pork! It's so versatile and easy just to toss the roast in the crockpot. I need to try your barbeque idea, sounds yummy.

  2. I read number one to Mack. He ignored me. One of our kids favorite comfort foods is Tyson chicken strips and Kraft mac-'n-cheese. We need to live closer to each other!

  3. I have my son help me in the kitchen too. It's such an important skill and lately he has been asking me to teach him how to make several dishes. The bbq pork sounds delicious and great snow day food!

  8. Love making crock pot pulled pork. The last time we made it we added BBQ sauce with a bit oh honey with garlic in it to cook the whole time. It was A-MAZ-ING! Just in case you ever want a slightly different take on it. Yummy!!!

  9. Love this post. I'm working on my 7 year old by making him watch Master Chef Jr episodes. My hope is that in two years, I will come home to a gourmet meal M-TH nights. I'll take over on the days that I am not working. Any other tips on getting sons to cook for you?

  10. We love crock pot pulled pork too! When my husband makes it he adds half a bottle of beer too for extra flavor and moisture. Delicious! Now you have me craving pulled pork :)
