Menu Plan Monday: Week of 3/15/10

I am back after a glorious two nights away with my husband in northern Minnesota. We had an awesome time and can't thank my parents enough for watching our two active kiddos while we were away! I feel like I'm being thrust into mommy mode again but I'm completely groceries, no clean house, no clean's CHAOS!! But I have managed to throw together a menu plan for the week, based mostly on what I already have in the fridge, pantry and freezer, and I'm really giving my good ol' Crock Pot a workout this week:

Sunday: we ate some wonderful BBQ from our next door neighbors

Monday: Slow Cooker Jam Chicken (recipe to come soon), roasted red potatoes, lettuce salad

Tuesday: Slow Cooker Broccoli Beef, brown rice

Wednesday: leftovers

Thursday: Slow Cooker Angel Chicken, mixed vegetables, lettuce salad

Friday: potluck banquet at my kids' Early Childhood Education school

Saturday: Homemade Mac 'n' Cheese, broccoli, lettuce salad

  1. I'm going to have to steal your Slow Cooker Angel Chicken recipe....looks delish, and so easy! Thanks for sharing!

  2. That angel chicken recipe looks great!

  3. Thanks for visiting my MPM. What an interesting blog you have! :)

  4. 2 nights away! That sounds like heaven. I'm looking forward to when my husband and I can do that (hopefully in time for our anniversary!). :) Trying to get little one to consistently sleep through the night first.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. :)
    Your menu sounds good--you love your slow cooker! I'm with you on that one.

  5. The slow cooker angel chicken looks really good - and healthy than the creamy one I'm doing this week! Glad you had a nice time away with hubby but the re-entry to reality is tough isn't it??!! LOL!
