Deb's, I've put both "Don't Panic" books on hold at the library. Thanks! Looks like I'll be waiting a while for them, but since I don't have a spare inch in my freezer or fridge most days as it is, I can wait. (I've got hubby on board for an extra freezer in the garage - now just waiting for a decent used one to pop up on craiglist for the right price).

Rose, good to know about the pork. I bought a couple of pork roasts spontaneously since they were on sale and cooked them in the crockpot with some onion soup and then shredded and froze the meat. I was thinking I could pull out a bag full and heat it up with barbecue sauce to serve on buns for a quick and easy meal sometime. But since I've never done it before, I've been nervous that I wasted all that meat (and the hour it took me to shred it all!).

I'm not sure what else to make with shredded pork... Maybe pork tacos or chimichangas?

The shredded pork makes great tamales and enchiladas. I slow smoke one every couple of months just to make them and freeze them. Just another option.

Yesterday I came home from school to the heavenly scent of Hawaiian Chicken in the crock-pot. Thank you Ray! There are three more in the freezer. YUM!

The recipe called for chicken breast (boneless, skinless) and at 1.49 a pound at the restaurant supply store we bit the bullet and bought a box. It is excellent meat but we both agreed it would be just a tiny bit better if it was made with thigh meat. Zero complaints about the finished product, just an observation.

Gwennifer, you could whip up a large batch of green chili with some pork, it freezes well too! We eat it over refried beans and cheese wrapped in tortillas, smothered with green chili and topped with lettuce, tomatoes, and sour cream!
