Crock Pot Comfort Foods and a Weekly Menu October 14-20, 2012

Hi Everyone! Hope you enjoyed your weekend with family and friends! Do anything fun? We are prepping the outside of the house to be painted before winter. Not a fun task for a weekend but it has to be done.

Crock Pot Comfort Foods have been a huge hit at our house this weekend! So this week, I’m sharing some wonderful crock pot comfort foods that were prepped on a  meal planning day, separated into gallon size freezer bag and placed in the freezer. This way, they’ll be ready to thaw the night before and placed in the crock pot on the day I choose to have that meal. Simple and Easy!

ps: You’ll see more chicken recipes this week as chicken was a hot sale item at the grocery store.

My weekly meal plan and shopping list is completed and posted on our fridge:

Breakfast options:

Muffin Quiches (made ahead and frozen in zip-loc freezer bags), Breakfast Burritos, Fresh Fruit, Homemade Greek Yogurt, cereal, toast, and eggs

Lunch options: (Fall Break this week for the kids)

Mini hamburger patties, Chicken Nuggets (homemade), leftovers, protein shakes, salad, fresh cut veggies and/or fruit, nuts, almonds

Suppers Your Family Will Love

Need ideas for your weekly meal plan? It’s time for another weekly menu.  I enjoy menu planning because of  the simplicity it provides for my life. It enables me to decrease my grocery shopping excursions to twice a month and it allows me to  have more free time to focus on my family and home. For ideas in the weekly meal plan, we’ll be focusing on a variety of family meals. You’ll find the recipes on the weekly meal plan also available on my Recipe Index page with a grocery list included.

Dinner (recipes will post throughout the week, given time to cook and photograph :))
