menu plan monday : 11.12.12.
ack. i haven't posted our menu in the last two weeks! i've continued planning, but blogging has taken a bit of a backseat. there truly aren't enough hours in my day... here's what we'll be eating this week.
meatless monday : baked potato soup. i made this for the first time last fall/winter and it is AMAZING. it's also beyond easy as it's made in your slow cooker and makes six quarts. perfect for leftovers!
i've selected monday as a night of the week for our family to eat a meatless meal as it tends to be more budget friendly as well as a friendlier option for the environment. my meat and potato eating husband tends to go along with this idea because i also make him a yummy dessert in addition to his meatless meal. what can i say, i'm nice like that.
tuesday : leftovers. we'll no doubt have soup leftover and we have some baked spasanga left over from last night's dinner as well. a win/win!
wednesday : crockpot mexican stuffed peppers. andy really likes stuffed peppers and when i saw this version for the crockpot where you don't even have to brown the meat for the filling first it was immediately added to my need to try soon list!
thursday : breakfast casserole. totally getting into the holiday mood as this is the breakfast we'd eat every holiday morning when i was younger. it also makes a great dinner as you put it together in the morning and then it sits in the fridge until you're ready to bake it in the evening. as it bakes for 90 minutes it works so much easier for me as i don't like to rise early to put something in the oven.
friday : garlic pesto chicken with tomato cream penne. i had originally pinned this as it was marked a crockpot recipe and was a bit disappointed to see that it actually wasn't. it looks so good that i'm going to give it a chance.
