If you already own Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook: Feasting with Your Slow Cooker, you know what a treasure you have. If you don't own it, you need it! It is a goldmine of great recipes. It has tons of recipes for various cuts of meat (vegetarian options too, plus much more), so when meat--let's say round steak--goes on sale, there are at least twenty different ways of preparing it. You could buy a few packages and package up several different meal options in freezer bags on the spot and have dinner ready in the freezer to thaw and stick in the crockpot. How easy is that?! I really love this cookbook (almost as much as our church cookbook!).
So I'm excited to try a few new recipes from Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook: Feasting with Your Slow Cooker, and then we'll be visiting my in-laws for the weekend.
Monday:Cream of Wheat, oranges
Leftover spaghetti, salad; or sandwiches
Tasty Drumsticks (from Fix-It and Forget-It)
Mashed Potatoes, Normandy blend vegetables
Tuesday:Scrambled eggs & toast
Grilled cheese, tomato soup
Spanish Round steak, rice (from Fix-It and Forget-It)
Wednesday:Blueberry muffins, strawberry-banana smoothies
Scalloped potatoes and pork chop casserole, green beans
Kids' pick for lunch (alternate baked potato bar)
Lemon-Honey roast chicken (again from Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook: Feasting with Your Slow Cooker)
Baked Potatoes, broccoli
Triple berry cobbler
Cinnamon rolls from the bread machine (maybe) :)

Smoothies, yogurt, fruit, homemade popsicles (will have to share a great recipe later!), granola, etc.
Don't forget about our once-a-month cooking festival right here on the 1st, which is Thursday, where we celebrate cooking of all kinds! (I missed my own party last month...oops! But I have a lot planned for this month's post. Stay tuned!).
