There, on the counter, is a seasoned porketta roast, 2 peppers, 1 onion and a jar of homemade salsa. These ingredients will make some of the best fajitas you have ever had.
A while back hubby bought this car adapter thing that I though was a little frivolous and I couldn't see the need for. It plugs into your car lighter and then has several outlets on it for plugging things in on a trip. Oh, how I have had to eat crow on those days that I was running errands and forgot to charge my cell phone. This piece of electronic genius has saved me a time or two.
Today, my hope is that it and my crockpot will prove my frugal homemaking prowess. All of the above ingredients are simmering in the crockpot as we speak. Come field trip time I will shred the now cooked pork roast with salsa, peppers and onions and we will then plug it into the van. I'll throw in the little cooler a package of whole wheat tortillas, a pint of sour cream and some shredded cheese. At six o'clock or so we will come out of the science center and have a little gourmet picnic. Ok, maybe not exactly gourmet but really good none the less. For $13.14 we will have a warm home/van cooked meal. It comes to $1.87 per person. A little more than we usually spend but better than the $3 or so per person that we would normally spend on fast food that we know isn't so great for us.
Mark it on your calendar honey. I was wrong about the little plugging in adapter thingy. It is totally worth it.
