Menu Plan Menu January 7, 2013
Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend and are ready for a good week! We spent the weekend at Edisto Beach, SC. My hubby's parents live there and we celebrated a late Christmas with his family. It was so much fun! We were blessed with: good chats, delicious food, pretty (but cold) weather, and tremendous fun with the cousins! I took my Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies and they were hit!
What's cooking in our kitchen this week?
Mon.- Crockpot Chicken Enchilada Soup and salad.
Wed.- Sweet and Spicy Bacon Chicken , green peas, and rice.
Thurs.- leftovers (For my family--I am going out with friends!)
Sat.- Breakfast for dinner! Pancakes, bacon, and fresh fruit!
Sun.- Creamy Slow Cooker Tortellini Soup
Last week's Tomato Basil soup was fabulous! I have to admit that at 5:30 that day, I remembered that I was planning to make dinner in the crockpot. I decided to make it on the stove and sauteed the celery, carrots, and onion in a drizzle of olive oil before adding the other ingredients to my stock pot. I think the roux that is added at the end is what makes it so fabulous!
Do you ever forget to start your crockpot/ slow cooker in the morning? What do you do?
Hope you all have a happy week! I am so glad you stopped by today!
