We spent the weekend celebrating my mom's birthday--61 is looking pretty good on her! My sister came into town and we threw together a birthday dinner complete with a Coca Cola cake. The story behind the cake is that my mom is a huge fan of Coke however she recently gave it up but still talks about it constantly so we thought it would be funny to make her the cake. It was really good! Of course everything tastes better when you make it wearing a dog apron.
My kitchen was already a mess from the party on Saturday so I decided to get the most out of it and prep some crockpot freezer meals. The premise is you prep all the ingredients then freeze and it's all ready to toss into your crockpot. I use my crockpot at least once a week so I hope these turn out good! I prepped for taco soup, honey teriyaki chicken, and chicken cacciatore. I have a Pinterest board devoted to these recipes. I'd love to hear your favorites!
As always here's some Monday motivation...
How was your weekend?
