Menu Plan Monday - Crockpot Meals 2!

Happy Monday, all! Yes, that's right, it's Monday again which means time for my menu! I never did get here on either Thursday or Friday last week. That's because...Surprise!...I found out on Wednesday night that the kids didn't have school on Friday and that I needed to pick them up a day early. Then, the boys and I spent Friday having a family fun day here at the house. I am happy to report that "slavedriver" Ben, who checks the house progress every 2 weeks when he gets here, declared "Mom, you're making big progress! I'm proud of you!"

So, last week, I did do a bit of cooking out of the Slow Cooker meals cookbook. I really need to start remembering to halve or more those recipes! I end up eating a few days of leftovers instead of enjoying a new recipe. I have to say that the chicken and dumplings was just as tasty as I remembered. Everyone loved the taco casserole on Saturday night and I can't wait to make it again.

This week, I'm sticking to the same cookbook and maybe mixing in a few other things! I may have company coming for the weekend, so I need to plan for that as well. This week's cookbook is still the Betty Crocker new Slow Cooker meals cookbook and here are my yummy choices!

Monday- Smoky Apple Butter Ribs (pg 56-57)
Tuesday- Leftovers
Wednesday- Chicken Rotini Casserole (pg 63)
Thursday- Leftovers
Friday- Cheesy Ravioli Casserole (pg 23)
Saturday- Out/Leftovers/Beef Stroganoff (pg 68)
Sunday- Cowboy Stew (pg 67)

And that's my menu! I'll be posting Part 2 of that rib recipe in just a few minutes, so make sure that you check out both Parts 1 and 2. I have them cooking in my crockpot right now and it smells delicious!
