Looking for more penny pinched recipes? Here you go!
My house smells yummy, our kitchen is clean, the laundry is (almost?) done, and I just love that there's just something amazing about how simply pulling together a menu plan and dinner each night can transform not only home, but also your life.
We've had a crazy week this past week with one very sick kiddo at home (my seventeen year old ran a fever for five days straight ~ bless him!), some family visiting in town, soccer games, cross country meets, football games, and gymnastics practices. Needless to say in the evenings we race from one event to the next, so I love that by planning our meals in advance I've won the we-need-to-eat-dinner-at-home-and-not-at-the-drive-thru war. 🙂
Any mommas with me?
As I've been looking over the menu plan to prepare for the week, I love that these are all simple recipes you can plan ahead of time without too much prep work, and really get dinner done every night of the week.
To make life easier, I “prepped” our kitchen last night by pulling out Mrs. Potts, gathering my spices and seasonings, and double checking the fridge for extra ingredients. It's amazing what five minutes of prep work at night did to make me feel ahead of the game this morning, and I'm adding a salad, broccoli and rice as sides to round out the meal.
HERE'S WHAT I'LL BE COOKING THIS WEEK:
- Monday, October 2nd, Slow Cooker Honey Chicken
- Tuesday, October 3rd, Slow Cooker Broccoli Cheese Soup
- Wednesday, October 4th, Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps
