Menu Plan Monday – October 19, 2015 (Day 19)

wpid-d01dc15e4b06d79f380093d68d66f9ab.jpgThis week is a crazy week.  I’ve got Parent-Teacher conferences on Tuesday and Thursday.   So having food in the crockpot makes sense.  Hubby will not have to worry about what to feed the boys.

I'm Hungry

Recipe from My Blog

Since it’s Monday, I’m going to share one of my recipes from my blog.  Did you know that you can cook a whole chicken in the crockpot?  It’s the only way I “roast” a chicken for the family.  In the mornings, I prep the chicken, place it in the crockpot, and then we eat it for dinner.

You can freeze the chicken for other meals.  So it’s a win-win!

Unfortunately, I don’t have any pictures of the chicken.  Here is the link to the blog post:  Crockpot chicken.

So what can you do with the remaining chicken that you froze?  Here are a few recipes that use already cooked chicken:

Blog Spotlight

Here is another great blog that features crock pot meals – Recipes that Crock.  Cris has a lot of recipes that utilizes the crockpot.  She has breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipes.  There are also recipes for desserts.

As I have done in weeks past, I’m going to feature two recipes that I would like to try from the blog.

  1. Crockpot Beef and Noodles – This sounds absolutely delicious!  I love beef and noodles so I can’t wait until I cook this.
  2. Crockpot Corn on the Cob – We love eating corn on the cob at our house.  Next summer, I will use this recipe to make the corn on the cob.  I won’t have to even heat up the kitchen with this recipe.  Maybe I would cook up some baked potatoes at the same time for a quick dinner.

Oh and please check back during the first week of November.  I’m planning a small giveaway.  No, it is not a crock pot.  More information will be forthcoming about the giveaway.

Happy eating,
Traci
