It’s been a busy month around our house. We went on a big vacation to Disney World and then when we got home, we put our house on the market and sold it in less than two days! Wow! I knew it would sell fast since we live in a great town with wonderful schools, but it sold super fast! We weren’t really prepared for that – so we are renting while we look for a new forever home. Thankfully, we have a great friend who is renting her home to us while she is taking care of her elderly mother. It’s been a pretty smooth transition but a VERY busy one! We’ve cleaned and painted and packed and moved and unpacked. (mostly) We’re ready for a little break.
I’m still making this house a home and getting all settled but I wanted to have a sit-down dinner with my family to just slow down a little. Unfortunately, I haven’t had time to make a big grocery run or make a big meal, but I found a solution! Farm Rich Smokehouse in the freezer section! Yes, I was asked to write about Farm Rich’s new busy mom meal solution, but it worked out perfectly with our crazy life right now! Busy mamma WIN!
With the new Farm Rich Smokehouse BBQ process that creates an authentic BBQ, slow cooked for hours, hand pulled, simple, clean ingredients and made in America. That means less time on the grill and more time to be with family! That is something I can definitely be on board with!
So, I headed to the store, picked up a couple of the new Smokehouse BBQ – pulled pork and chicken – and whipped up a fun meal to enjoy on the deck with the kids. Sandwiches, chips, cole slaw and of course, dessert! Everyone was happy to just sit down, relax and enjoy a meal together in our new home. It worked out great! One of my favorite time saving tips for making a meal is to plan, plan, plan. Make sure to have all of your ingredients on hand and make up as much ahead of time as possible. Better yet…make your meal plan with items that don’t need to you to be slaving over the stove the whole time the guests are arriving or your family is hanging out. Make ahead your meal and have it ready to go!
