On the Menu – Slow Cooker Week

Posted by on Jun 24, 2012 in On The Menu, Recipes | 5 comments

How’s everyones weekend going so far? Did anyone stick to their menu last week? I didn’t keep to my menu as well as I normally do. The english muffin bread didn’t get made, nor the homemade pizza pockets.  I did get to try Barb’s chicken and noodle recipe though and we enjoyed it! Thanks Barb!

Well, this week my Kitchen Aid Mixer has high-tailed it out of the kitchen for the week and my handy slow cooker has made itself comfy on the counter in its place.  It will have some hard work ahead of itself this week, as I have planned 5 meals for it to cook for me! Ah, I can just envision it now, my feet up on the couch as I watch little buddy play with his toys all day. Anyways back to reality, here’s our menu for this week!

 

Breakfast

  • Scrambled eggs, toast and kiwi x2
  • Granola, yogurt and peaches
  • Peaches and Cream Oatmeal
  • Hard boiled eggs, English muffin bread and smoothies x 2
  • Veggie omelet and English muffin bread

Lunch

  • Oh glorious Left overs x 3
  • PB& J sushi rolls and peas
  • Chicken Salad sammies and apple slices x 2
  • Snacky lunch (whole grain crackers, cheese, and kiwi)

Dinner

  • Slow Cooker Roast and veggies (1-3 pound roast, 8 oz container of sour cream, salt, pepper, 2 sweet potatoes, small bag of carrots and small onion cook on low for 8 hours)
  • Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken Tacos (recipe: 4 chicken breasts, 1 cup of salsa, 2 tablespoons taco mix cook on low heat for 6 hours) serve with rice and beans
  • Savory Chicken and tossed salad
  • Sausage and Peppers and tossed salad
  • Sweet and Tangy Meatballs  
  • Dinner Out
  • Dinner with friends

I’m looking for some new slow cooker meals.  What are your favorites? Please share!

Posted by on Jun 17, 2012 in On The Menu, Recipes | Comments Off on On the Menu for June 17th

Happy Sunday Friends! This weeks dinner menu is much easier then the last couple of weeks have been.  All the dinner recipes are 7 ingredients or less, which is absolutely wonderful for me! I’ve been trying a whole bunch of new recipes lately that require a lot more. I’m taking it down a couple notches and keeping it easy and simple this week!

Of course I’ll be trying some new recipes though. I’m really excited to try my a couple of my blogging friends recipes: Danielle’s english muffin bread and Barb’s garlic chicken and noodles! Bring on the yumminess! :) Thanks Ladies for letting me share your recipes here on my blog! :-)

On the Menu for the Week of June 10th

Posted by on Jun 10, 2012 in On The Menu, Recipes | 2 comments

Last weeks menu was really fun to do.  I planned some new recipes and we loved just about all of them.  Our favorites were: turkey sausage, avocado mac-n-cheese and honey rosemary chicken. One that I want to improve upon is the quinoa porridge.  The next couple of weeks I’ll have it on the menu to perfect it to our families taste buds then share the recipe with you all. I have a few new recipes to try this week and some from last week returning.  Here’s our menu for the week.

 

My new favorite mac-n-cheese!

Breakfast

  • Quinoa Porridge and strawberries
  • Spinach and Tomato Omelet with red breakfast potatoes
  • Granola, Greek Yogurt and Peaches
  • Smoothie and hard boiled eggs x2
  • Turkey Sausage, scrambled eggs and strawberries x 2

I just love blogs and Pinterest!  It’s my number one way I keep myself motivated to menu plan!  Any excuse to get on Pinterest: right?!  Whether you need a gluten free recipe, a delicious salad recipe or yummy cookie recipe: the inspiration and choices are endless!  Do any of you have a blog?  I’d love for you to share with me a link to your any of your recipes, I’d love to try them!  And if you don’t have a blog, please send me an email me  of your signature dish!

Anyways, I’m so excited to try some of these amazing recipes I found this week.

Doesn’t this look awesome!  It’s a recipe from Two Pea’s & Their Pod. I didn’t get a chance to try it last week, so this week is a must!

Good morning friends! I was very excited to get on Pinterest and visit my favorite blogs to see what I should whip up this week. I really missed menu planning and freezer cooking the past three weeks. I’m glad to jump back into the swing of things around here.  Here is what I plan to make this week.  There are some newbies and old time favorites this week!
