Menu Plan Monday

Soccer season starts this week with multiple practices for three out of four of the kids. It's about to get insanely busy at our house. So in the next few weeks I'll be pulling out all my tried and true crock pot recipes so our busy evenings are still filled with homemade dinners. But until then we'll be having these yummy dishes for the week...


Scrambled eggs and fruit
French Toast with blueberries
Yogurt Parfaits
Oats with apple and cinnamon
Blueberry Pancakes
Leftover Muffins


Tuna Cakes with tartar sauce and veggie tray
Quiche (doubled) with homemade crust and fruit
Chili Macaroni and garden green salad
Broccoli Garlic Pasta and balsamic tomato salad
Leftover Buffet

For more dinner ideas check out Organizing Junkie's Menu Plan Monday.

We have the same issue with football. Usually my boys don't like crock pot meals, because of the "look" of them. I read through your menu. How do you prepare those dinner in the crock pot, or do you make them ahead and reheat? Thanks! I love your site, especially the Recipezaar links.

Hi Nicole,

I didn't have any crockpot recipes on the menu this week. I'm just looking ahead to what's coming real soon for us. I'll probably just dig them out and get them organized for the coming weeks. I have some really good ones that don't "look" like piles of glop that might appeal to your boys. Keep an eye out for those in the coming weeks.
