I do a lot of crock pot meals and cooking ahead (heating the kitchen up one day to freeze a few meals for reheating later in the week).

To be honest though. I have a crock pot meal planned today and I want to heat up my kitchen. It's 57 degrees out right now, pouring rain and raw.

I can do this

today is a crockpot meal

I usually have a few nights a week I use the grill and a few nites only leftovers get reheated in the mircowave or crockpot meals

everything varies but we manage to use the sideburner of the grill to cook when needed

Wow, what a great challenge idea! It will be really hard for me, cause even though it's hot enough outside to cook on the sidewalk I still find myself heating up the oven and using the stove! I havn't made my meal plan for next week, hopefully when I journey down to the thread I'll get some good ideas!

We are grilling steaks tomorrow and smoking a brisket on aturday, so at least the main dish is already being made outside!
