A Week of Meals – Slow Cooker Version

I have Valentine’s Day present for you. I’m giving you a free slow cooker menu plan. All recipes are from this blog or my slow cooker blog.

I sometimes have problems with menu planning, so I thought this would help you. If you click on the menu, it will take you to a Google doc of the menu. Then you can click on the meals in blue to get the recipe from my blog.

This menu has two main protein sources – whole chicken and ground beef. The ground beef will be used to make tacos and baked potatoes topped with leftover taco meat. The chicken will be used for sweet and sour chicken and quesadillas plus as meat course on Sunday.

Four of the meals utilize the slow cooker. Three of the recipes utilize leftovers. There is a fourth if you count the salad at the end of the week.

So what about breakfast and lunches? For breakfasts, I have two great resources on my blog. You can visit 6 Easy Breakfast ideas or DIY Breakfast Edition. If that doesn’t appeal to you, toast and cereal are great options.

Lunch can be leftovers or sandwiches such as peanut butter and jelly or ham and cheese.

What about dessert or a sweet treat for this week’s menu? How about homemade brownies. That seems like it would be complicated to put together. But they don’t take long. These brownies are one of our family’s favorite treats.

If you like this menu, please let me know. I can then create more of them.

I already have some ideas for other menus.

Happy Eating,
