Weekly meal plan

This week should be easy for us.  A couple crock pot recipes and quick dinners.  Here’s what we have for this week’s dinners.



Monday – Chili (with crackers, cheese, and pasta)  I love to sprinkle in the oyster crackers and a bit of cheese.  = $12

Tuesday – Burrito’s (Chipotle style) we do it all, Steak strips, corn, cheese, salsa, sour cream, black beans, green peppers, red peppers, onions, and rice.  = $15

Wednesday – Chicken noodle soup (crockpot) served with rolls = $12

Thursday – Beef stew (crockpot) A little pricier but easily feeds 8 and so we will have a little left over.  = $18

Friday – Mansaf (this one takes a while but worth it)  another of my husband’s cuisines.  Here’s the recipe. It is a delicious meal.  = $20

Saturday – Chicken parmesan – I make everything homemade for this one, with the Olive Garden recipe found here = $12

Sunday – Easy day.  Breakfast for dinner.  Pancakes, french toast, eggs, and turkey bacon. = $7.50

Here’s our weekly menu this week.  This menu will cost $96.50 and will feed our family of 6. We like these recipes and this will be my first time making beef stew in my crockpot. Pretty excited about it, actually.

I would like to make more recipes in the crockpot, My Mother bought it for me last year and I’ve really not used it hardly at all.  It makes sense for me to use it and I’m not sure why I don’t.  I have an entire recipe book for it, too!  There are breakfast, lunches, dinners and even dessert! Which I was surprised about. I’ve never had a dessert from a crockpot or even a breakfast.  I really need to get going on these recipes and try them.  Having 4 children you’d think I’d use it more since it makes it easier in the evening.  It cooks the food for you.  So I will be trying more crockpot recipes.

Do you use a crockpot?  Which recipes do you love to make in it?
