As school begins and schedules fill up, it is time to get back into the swing of things with meal planning. The last few weeks we have eaten more on the “blah” side and I really see the value in having a set menu. It makes our day flow alot better, and we don’t have to ask one another “What do you want to do about dinner. Plus, I can utilize either Sunday or Monday(when the kids are at school) to shop for items we need for the week.

I am starting a class on Monday evenings and so Monday will be crockpot night, I’m looking forward to finding all sorts of new recipes to try out in the crock pot. I honestly don’t know how my own dad was able to cook week after week without using a crockpot. It is hands down the easiest appliance in the world and saves so much time. Very rarely can you mess something up in it and they come in so many sizes that even if you are cooking for 2, you can definitely make dinner in your crockpot.

So, this weeks menu is starting to take shape. I work in the afternoon so finding something I can make ahead for DH to put in the oven is also key this week. Especially since our oldest DD has ballet and soccer. Here is what it looks like so far.

Monday: Mexican slow cooked carnitas
Tuesday: Fried rice(made by DH)
Wednesday: Crock pot beef and noodles
Thursday: leftovers
Friday: Chicken and dumplings

Happy meal planning everyone! Bon Appetite!!!
