This time of year can get crazy with the Chickies.... trying to finish up year-end activities, little league, and longing for summer vacation just to get here! I was extremely busy at work last week, and again regretted not having a meal plan! Here's to a better week!
Monday - I found some cube steaks in my freezer, but really wasn't feeling the Chicken Fried Steak love - these Easy Minute Steaks seemed like a good choice for something different - I will probably do a can of cream of mushroom too ('cuz I"m a sucker for a creamy-ish gravy), mashed potatoes, will make a perfect comfort food dinner!
Tuesday - We are starting into have little league games every Tuesday and Thursday through the end of June - so my crockpot will be getting a work-out! I scored some of those little pork roasts at Costco - they are 2-3 lbs. each and you get for for $16 or so! I use them for everything.... I also have a jar of La Victoria Salsa Verde in my fridge that is only missing a couple of tablespoons - it seemed like the perfect use called for in this Chile Verde recipe plus I do have a giant pack of Costco tortillas that need to be used up too! (I will do it in the crockpot even though the recipe doesn't say to do that.)
Wednesday - I'm hoping that the weather is wrong and Wednesday will be a good grilling night! I've been wanting to try this Tandoori Chicken for awhile
Thursday - Crockpot is out again tonight. I really like the sounds of Tuscan Pasta Chicken Crock Pot. I'll do the spaghetti separately when we get home.
Friday- As I've said before, I really have to have easy and yummy on Fridays or I never get it made. So, I'm turning to the Chickies favorite Sloppy Joes. They always earn me lots of "Momma - you are the bestest cook!" comments! :)
Saturday - I still have a couple (or um... like 5) whole chickens in the freezer. And again... I'm hoping for a good grill day - but if not a good all just do a beer-butt chicken in the oven instead.
Sunday - KK said we haven't had meatloaf in a really long time. So, we will try out this recipe that is next on my list (quest) for the world's perfect meatloaf. :) If I'm feeling extra culinary - I might make PW's Basic Macaroni and Cheese too!
Have a great week!
