Welcome to day #12 of my 31 days of Slow Cooking. Since it’s Monday, I will share my menu for the week. Once again, I’m going to use the crock pot for cooking my meals for the week.
Monday – Slow Cooker Ravioli, green beans, ciabatta bread
Tuesday – Slow Cooker Cheese Steak, Sloppy Joes, chips, raw veggies
Wednesday – Pulled Pork with Root beer BBQ Sauce, chips, and raw veggies
Thursday – Pot Roast, Roasted Potatoes, mixed veggies
Friday – Taco bar
As I have stated before, I don’t list meals for Saturdays and Sundays because the weekends are up in the air on what we eat.

Recipe from My Blog
Since it’s Monday, I’m going to share one of my recipes from my blog. Today’s recipe has been a favorite for many years. It’s such a simple recipe to put together. Buy the pot roast when it’s on sale. Around my area, $5.99 is the typical amount for a pot roast. So when I saw it on sale for $3.49 a pound this weekend, I bought two roasts. One for this week and one for another time.
This week I’m going to cook up a roast using a different recipe I’ve tried two other times. After I cook the pot roast using a different recipe, I will post that recipe on my slow-cooking blog.
Here is another blog that I found while perusing the Internet. The Funny is Family blog does a series called Crockpot Thursdays. Amy, the blog’s author, and other family members decide on a recipe for the crockpot they want to make on Thursdays to have family togetherness even miles apart. Each family member gives their opinions about the meal and maybe how they have adapted the recipes for their family needs and likes.
I’m highlighting two recipes from her blog that I would like to try in the future.
- Lasagna Soup – This recipe sounds absolutely delicious! Hubby and I love lasagna so this would be a way to get the taste of lasagna without the hard work of putting a lasagna together.
- Orange Chicken – Hubby and I love Chinese food. This would allow us to have Chinese without having to order in. Hubby would love the rice I would serve alongside the orange chicken. Yum!
