On the Menu – Slow Cooker Week

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

  1. Mmm, your menu looks delicious! I was just thinking of making appetizer meatballs this week for a …snack! oink! I love using the slow cooker, too. On of my new faves is using chicken with cream cheese and rotel. Over rice or stuffed in a tortilla..easy:)

    • Your menu looked fabulous too. I love your themed meal plan!

  2. I’ll have meatballs in my crockpot on Thursday this week. Love my CP’s during the summer, when life is hot and busy.
    Hoping to try the English Muffin bread soon. Thanks!

  3. Yummy menu. It is hot here in Texas, so we are doing a lot of crockpot cooking as well.

    That Savory Chicken sounds awesome!

    • Yes, in the heat of the summer the slow cooker is my best friend! I haven’t tried the savory chicken yet, it really does sound awesome! :-)
