Quick Recipes for Busy Night

September is almost here. I cannot wait!! There are no “lazy days of summer” on a farm. After our fourth crop hay in September and some field work in October, things start to slow down a bit. I mean, it isn’t like we get days off, animals need to be feed each day and cows need to be milked twice each day, but there are fewer tasks to get done in those precious 24 hours. It’s nice.

And then my fantasy of actually slowing down is ruined when I remember that we have to start school. If you are a long time fan of ours you know that we homeschool our kids. You can learn about why we homeschool here. It has been a great choice for our family.

With school comes activities. Evening activities. Activities that are scheduled so that we have to dash out the door with little time to eat, let along, prep supper. Luckily, I have a few quick recipes that help on those busy nights.

Sloppy Joes-30minutes

I love sloppy joes. You can even brown the Zweber Farms Grassfed ground beef ahead, add all the ingredients into a crockpot and let it cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Remember, all our beef is 100% grass-fed, never given antibiotics and living life on pasture.

Chicken Enchiladas with White Sauce-30 minutes

One night make a whole chicken in a crockpot or Instant Pot and the next night use leftovers for this delicious meal.  Our chickens are pasture raised and never given antibiotics.

Oven Baked Pork Chops-30 minutes

This is our most viewed recipe!  It is so simple it is ridiculous. Our pigs are fed NonGMO feed, raised in a straw bedded barn where they can run around and play, and never given antibiotics.

 I hope these three recipes give you some inspiration and encouragement to still get a healthy meal on the table on those crazy busy nights. You can purchase Zweber Farms grass-fed beef, pasture raised chicken and natural pork by giving us a call at 952-461-3428 or by emailing us at zweber@integra.net. You can learn more here.
