On the Menu


This weeks menu will be short, since I’m heading to Florida Wednesday morning!!  Woohoo!  Warm weather here I come!!!

I offered to make extra meals for my husband and son, but Bill said he would do all the cooking on his own while I’m gone.  Still, I will stock the fridge with a ton of sandwich meat just in case.  Plus I’m sure there will be a night of breakfast for dinner while I’m gone.

I’m making two large meals on Monday and Tuesday, so the boys will have a lot of leftovers.

Monday: Crock pot Chicken Tacos  This is my own recipe based off of all the other variations on Pinterest.  I just throw 6-8 chicken breasts into the crock pot, coat them with my taco/fajita seasoning mix, add a 1 1/2 cups of fresh salsa, and cook on high for 4-5 hours.  It will literally fall apart. The great thing about this chicken recipe is that it can be turned into enchiladas or quesadillas too!

Tuesday:  Italian Goulash from For the Love of Cooking.  This is my one new recipe from Pinterest for the week.

Goodies for the boys while I’m gone:  Over the Top German Chocolate Brownies from Nancy Creative.  These are TO DIE FOR!!

What is on your menu this week?  Anything new?

On the Menu for Next Week

I finally got a chance to sit down and come up with next weeks menu.  Here is what we will be having in our household:


Monday we’re having Chicken and Roasted Garlic Lasagna from For the Love of Cooking.  This is a recipe I have made 3 times now. We all love it too! The only change I made to the recipe was to double the amount of baby bell peppers and add more shredded chicken breast (we like our chicken!)


Tuesday:  I made a ton of Rachel Ray’s Pasta e Fagioli with Roasted Garlic and Fennel last month and froze it. I’ll be pulling some of this out for soup and sandwiches Tuesday night.

BBQ Potatoes

Thursday will be rotisserie chicken from the grocery store, with roasted root veggies and the potatoes pictured above from Kayotic Kitchen. These potatoes are baked with garlic, butter, and chicken broth. I found this recipe on Pinterest, and each week I make one new recipe from Pinterest in hopes of making everything on my recipe boards…by the time I’m 80.

Friday will be homemade calzones. I’ll get the dough recipe posted with pics for ya during next week.


For Super Bowl Sunday I’m making my Easy Crock Pot Pulled Pork, and it is a recipe that my hubby and son scarf down!

What is on your menu for this upcoming week?
