Menu Plan Monday ~ Sept 22/14

Menu Plan Monday for Sept 22/14 - come join us!

Hello friends!  It’s Menu Plan Monday and here we are once again reunited as we prepare our menu plans for an organized week ahead.  Whoot, whoot!

So last week after a busy day, I had a moment as I walked into the kitchen and was just so relieved to see the slow cooker working away on the counter. I had to share my relief on Instagram of course 🙂

Slow Cooker

Gosh I love my slow cooker.  It’s about 15 years old but it keeps slugging away for me week after week.  I’d much rather prepare my food in the morning when I have more energy in my step and not worn down from the day.  I’m always surprised that more people don’t utilize this amazing appliance.  It’s such a beautiful thing 🙂  You can find some of my family favorite slow cooker recipes HERE.  Do you love or hate yours?

Menu Planning Resource:

Speaking of slow cookers, I found a  great site called The Sassy Slow Cooker and they shared earlier this month a September calendar full of slow cooker recipes that you can download for free.  Check it out HERE.  It looks like they prepare a new one each month.


My Weekly Menu:

Monday:  BLTA with Spicy Mayo with Warm Lentil Salad

Tuesday:  Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Wednesday:  Fettuccini Alfredo with Sausage (I’ll add some peas for a veggie as well)

Thursday:  Church get together ~ No Bake Peanut Butter Bars, dinner is leftover buffet as usual 🙂

Friday:  Crab and Corn Chowder with Bacon & Jalapeno

Saturday:  Slow Cooker Honey Maple BBQ Ribs served with mashed potatoes and corn

Sunday:  YOYO (you’re on your own)

Have a great week everyone!!

    I am learning to use my slow cooker more often. I’ve had trouble in the past with my meals being over cooked but am learning how to use it a little better.

    Finding more easy and inexpensive recipes for my slow cooker is on MY plan for this fall. The website you shared will be the first place I check out!

    Thanks and thanks for hosting week after week after week! It’s always such a joy to read the journey other women go on toward organization, planning and frugality! Blessings.

    I really should be using the slow cooker more! Now that it’s cooling off, I think potato soups are going to be coming back!

    I love the concept of the slow cooker, but we haven’t had the best of luck with it. I’m always open to finding new recipes though!

    This is my first time back to posting my meal plans after at least a few years hiatus. I hope to be here weekly! Thanks for continuing to host a great resource

    I love my slow cooker for beef standards, like pot roast, chili, and beef stew. I don’t have much luck with it however whenever I try chicken dishes.
