Menu Plan Monday – November 16th, 2009

Did you see that? We’re over half way through November already! And this week I will hit 36 weeks on Thursday. Before we know it there will be a new baby in the house! Everyone in the house can tell too because I have been organizing everything in the house. Just the other day I organized my freezers. Did she just say freezers, as in plural? Oh yes, I have 3. We bought this house specifically because it had a Mother-in-law apartment with a 2nd kitchen in it. So I have those 2 freezers and an extra stand up freezer that we had before we bought this house. ๐Ÿ™‚ Now the freezers have labels. One hold fruits, veggies, and cheese; another holds meat and pre-made meals; the last one holds grains, nuts, and any overflow that don’t fit into the other 2. And because I organized those freezers, I will be trying to use up the things that I came across! ๐Ÿ˜€

Here’s what we have planned for this week…

Egg biscuits with cheese
Crock Pot Hash Brown Casserole
Maybe some muffins or quick bread

Leftovers, Sandwiches or wraps with a fruit, veggie and cookie.

M – Crock Pot Rotisserie Style Chicken
T – Chicken Pot Pie
W – Sour Cream Chili Bake (Thanks Kirsten!) I’m going to try making this with chili that I already have in my freezer
Th – Cranberry Pork (from the freezer)
F – Leftovers
Sa – Crock Pot Lasagna This will also be an experiment as I want to use noodles that I already have instead of lasagna noodles
Su – Pizza

That’s very interesting. Nearly all the recipes I’m using come from either Recipezaar or A Year of Slow Cooking. It seems that any recipe I’m looking for can be found on Recipezaar. For example, my friend Kirsten posted the Sour Cream Chili Bake in her menu plan last week. Knowing that I wouldn’t be able to keep track of it unless I wrote it down or found it on Recipezaar, I hiked over there and did a search for it. Found it… exact same ingredients too. The Chicken Pot Pie recipe is the exact same one that I use out of my Betty Crocker Cookbook. It’s just a great site to use. Make sure you check the ratings though. ๐Ÿ™‚

Well goodness, this post has gotten long enough. I hope that you have a wonderful week. Oh, and don’t forget to click on over to orgjunkie for hundreds of other menu ideas. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for stopping by!

PS – These Cranberry Upside Down Muffins are scrumptious!
