Blog Hoppin' Teacher Week! Make Ahead Meals!

Linking up again today for Teacher Week 2015 with Blog Hoppin'! I enjoyed reading 5 fun facts about so many teacher bloggers yesterday!

Today's topic is Make Ahead Meals!

So if you read my post from yesterday you already know I LOVE to cook.

Here are a few of my favorite make ahead meals (links to them)- or at least easy meals to fix on a hectic school night!

One of my favorite "easy" meals to fix is salad. This one I would consider make ahead because I can pick up all the parts at the grocery store, stick them in the fridge, and then when I get home from work it can be on the table in a matter of minutes with VERY little to clean up after dinner.

This is a spin on a salad that I used to get at O'Charley's (sadly the location near us closed!). It is a...

Cranberry Pecan Fried Chicken Salad
spring mix salad mix
fried chicken tenders (already prepared from the deli counter)- sliced
dried cranberries
candied pecans (Emerald brand Glazed "Pecan Pie" are the best!)
crumbled blue cheese
Balsamic dressing

Mix it all together- DELICIOUS! 

Crockpot meals are also ideal during the work week- here are a few of my favorites from Iowa Girl Eats (she is my fave food blogger!)

These sandwiches are sooooo good! Crock Pot Italian Beef Sandwiches

And I also love Signature Spicy, Smoky, Sweet Chili (it is crockpot friendly!). It is my go to chili recipe these days- the mixture of the spicy, smoky, and sweet really is a hit!

I hope you get a chance to try a few of these out!
