Renovating has taught me many useful skills. Sure there is the proper use of a miter saw, the balancing of drywall on my head, or how to cheat Home Depots Equipment Rental hours**, but the real readiness skills include how to not go insane while living in the one mostly clean room in your house or how to survive months using a toaster oven as your only cooking device.
It is coming down to the wire until Pork Chop's due date (11 days!), and after perhaps the most depressing, boring, and lonely family-less Christmas ever, I'm feeling antsy.
So I decided to do some additional preparing by making crockpot meals and freezing them. I whipped out my Renovation Readiness Skills, bought 4lbs of skinless boneless chicken thighs and went to work!

It was pretty darn easy, so if you have an good freezer/crockpot recipes please leave them in the comments. Vegetarian recipes will get extra thanks.
**To 'cheat' their system, rent your tool or equipment so that it is due back when they are not open. (9pm Sunday right maybe?) That way you get a whole bunch of free hours up until the reopen!
