Meal Plan Monday - October 12

Meal Plan Monday

I am slacking, slacking, slacking but for a good reason in my humble opinion!
I had sick kids, and I swear it's like mid-term was yesterday and tomorrow is finals! This term has gone by so fast!

Foodwise, I am L-O-V-I-N-G life with a crockpot! When Mrs. Michaeil gave it to me I thought it would be fun, but it has been amazing! That first 2 weeks I had it I cooked 2 meals on the stove: burgers and fried shrimp! I've "baked" in it, stewed in it, souped in it and recently I creoled in it.. shrimp creole that is!

I promise to get the recipes I' have tried up soon but for now here is this weeks MPM. I went through the freezer and picked recipes out of my new cookbook "Fix-It and Forget It: 1,400 Best Slow Cooker Recipes" that Mrs. Michaeil bought for me when she heard how much fun I was having with this poor object that sat in her cabinet for months! And of course I edit recipes to my own liking lol!

  • Monday: Leftover Pork Potato Stew with Rice printable recipe
  • Tuesday: Cheeseburger Soup printable recipe
  • Wednesday: Mini-Roni Pizza kids found mini-pepperoni so i promised a pizza night and it's Halie's 12th birthday :)
