Menu Plan Monday ~ Oct 17/11
Hello lovely ladies! Hope you had a terrific weekend and are ready for a brand new week!
On Monday and Wednesdays after school I swim laps while my son is in swimming lessons. I love fitting the exercise in but I’m sure exhausted by the time we get home around 5:00. The last thing I want to do is make dinner! Thank goodness I don’t have to worry about it because my slow cooker comes to the rescue! I especially like to use my slow cooker more often in the fall and winter but if there is one thing I can’t stand is overcooked meat. Chicken is the worst so I don’t often use chicken in the slow cooker which isn’t a big deal for me because there are just so many other options. Roasts, soups, stews and chili to name a few. Yum!
Last week’s recipe highlight definitely goes to the ham recipe and the homemade mac ‘n cheese recipe. The ham was delicious and safe for my son (dairy, gluten and egg free) so that is always a bonus. I need to make it more often because it’s just so easy and gosh it’s hard to overcook a ham :)
Tuesday: Bacon-Cheese Topped Chicken served with red potatoes and broccoli
Thursday: Leftover buffet
Saturday: Spaghetti Ham Bake (makes two – one for us and one to surprise someone else)
Sunday: Picking night and YOYO (you’re on your own)
