Menu Plan Monday, Oven Free Meals

Just a few more weeks and summer will be over. I’m so ready for some cooler weather and to get back to baking. The store-bought bread is alright but I so miss the homemade bread. It’s just been too hot to bake. 🙁

This week I’ll be staying away from oven cooking. We will be grilling and using the slow cooker most days. I’ll be making the baked potatoes in the slow cooker. They turn out a little softer than the oven baked ones but acceptable for the hot weather.

If you haven’t tried it before you’ll have to give it a try. Just put the potatoes into the slow cooker. You can rub the skins with butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper if you like. Then set the slow cooker to low and let it cook all day.

  1. Have you tried baking in your grill? I bake in ours all the time since we got it. Yesterday I made chocolate chip cookies on our grill. I’ve baked a cake and a pie on there also. Just a thought.

    1. Sakura, I do bake on my grill. We are currently out of wood pellets for it though. I need to get out and purchase some more so I can bake on the grill. Thanks for suggesting it. 🙂
