We had a change in the pay dates for Keith's work, so this has forced me to buckle down and go back to meal planning. (Mainly so I can shop for 2+ weeks in advance instead of weekly) This put my planning skills back in working order, a word document was made, and I've been digging through my recipe boxes and the internet.
So, here's what we're eating this week, recipes included as appropriate.
Sunday: Cheeseburger Noodles, of the box variety, that allow me to collect another Box Top for the school!
Monday: CP (Crock Pot): To Die for Roast with biscuits on the side
1/2 cup water
1 package each: Brown Gravy, Italian Dressing, Ranch Dressing mixes
Place roast in crock pot, combine seasonings in a bowl and spread over roast, then pour water around roast without washing the season off the roast. Cook on low for 6-10 hours (all depends on crock)
Biscuits are our favorite Pillsbury variety.
Tuesday: Taco night
Wednesday: CP: Garlic Ranch Chicken with corn on the side
4 chicken breasts (can be frozen)
Bottle of favorite ranch dressing
1 clove of garlic- chopped
Place everything in crock pot, cook on high for 1 hour, then on low for 2-4.
Thursday: Bacon Cheeseburger Pasta
8 oz uncooked tube or spiral pasta
1lb ground beef
6 bacon strips diced
1 can 10.75 oz Tomato soup
1 cup shredded cheddar chesse
BBQ sauce and mustard are optional
Cook pasta according to package. Brown beef, drain and set aside. Use the same skillet and cook bacon until crisp; remove with a slotted spoon onto a paper towel. Discard of pan drippings. Using the skillet add in cooked pasta, meats, and soup; heat through. Sprinkle with cheese, cover and cook until melted. Serve with mustard and BBQ sauce if you like.
Friday: Pizza Biscuits
Take canned biscuits, smash flat and lay onto cookie sheet. Add your favorite spaghetti sauce, toppings and cheese. Bake biscuits as directed on package. Yum!
Saturday: Family dinner at Rich and Judy's / Momtourage dinner!
We don't eat very fancy meals at our house as you can see, but they are quick, easy and favorites.
Both of this week's crock pot meals are from the Crock Pot Girls group on Facebook.
I'm not sure where the other recipes came from at this point as they were ripped out of a magazine.
