So I have spent this past weekend surfing the net in search of crockpot recipes and other prepare-ahead-of-time recipes for this upcoming week.
It's going to be a busy week. I start back teaching on Monday . . . and I have some appointments in my office this week . . . and court on Thursday . . . so the Christmas holidays are officially over for me! I know . . . I know . . . most people have already gone back to work . . . what-e-ver!
Here's my menu for next week:
Crockpot BBQ Chicken
Kraft Macaroni & Cheese (The shell shaped kind - Zach's favorite)
(Picture and recipe from http://forkinit.blogspot.com/)
Crockpot Roast & Gravy
Grilled Chicken Tenders in garlic, herb & wine marinade
Spaghetti sauce & Pioneer Woman's Meatballs
Take-out Mike's Pizza
Lunch: Alphabet Soup & Grilled Cheese
Pioneer Woman's Chicken Spaghetti (from the freezer)
Lunch: Chili dogs & chips
Grilled Pork Chops in mesquite marinade
Green Bean Bundles
I have included links to the recipes I've gotten from other sources. Just click on the name of the recipe and it should take you to the website.
Also, I have posted the recipes for my Crockpot Roast & Gravy, Grilled Chicken Tenders, Grilled Pork Chops, and Brown Rice on another page on my blog. My recipes aren't special, but it's how I make them. . . . just in case you were wondering.
I can't wait to see if I follow through on this plan. Of course, things happen that you can't forsee so hopefully this menu will allow me to be flexible. I've also got to figure up the WW points for the meals. (Fun :/ )
Now I'm off to Tems to buy the groceries for this week's menu. I'm going to try and prepare some of the dishes ahead of time.
I'm so excited about this. . . .
Check back and see how it all turns out with
