It’s Menu Plan Monday again. This is the first full week of school here, and my piano lessons season starts too. My schedule with lessons this year has 3 days of the week where I finish after 5. This makes it a real challenge for me to get dinner on the table around 6:00. But, at least this week, I am prepared (I think). I’ve been collecting crockpot recipes on Pinterest, and I’m trying several this week. I know that I may not be up for using the crockpot three days each week all school year, but for now … here goes. Actually, this just involves doing dinner prep earlier in the afternoon instead of later, I guess.
Monday: Asian Chicken Sandwiches — new crockpot recipe — VERDICT: didn’t think they were too great. Not keeping this one.
Tuesday: Easy Cheesy Spaghetti Casserole – leftover from last week.
Wednesday: Vegan Crockpot White Chili — I may add some chicken for the non-vegetarians in the group. Maybe bread in the bread machine too.
Thursday: Crockpot Santa Fe Chicken — yet another new crockpot recipe.
Friday: Beef and Bean Taco Casserole — no crockpot! I may actually be in the kitchen at a normal time.
What are you cooking this week? I’d love to hear. Are kids back in school where you live?
