It's back to school week for all of us here. My classes start today and the kids homeschool starts today too. Fall is in full swing now and the soccer games and school work makes life really busy around here as it does with most of you. My greatest weapons at accomplishing all the things this season brings are Organization and my trusty crockpot. So I've been making weekly school plans, chore charts, and record keeping books as well as digging through my favorite slow cooking recipes.
Here's what's cooking at our house this week.
Breakfasts: I've been offering the kids a few choices that they make themselves in the morning. This cuts down on my prep time in the mornings and produces independent kids, which is kind of the goal isn't it? I have several things made up in the freezer for self serve mornings.
- Banana Muffins
- scrambled eggs and toast
- Fruit and Yogurt Smoothies
- Roasted Kielbasa and Potatoes with green salad
- Crockpot Chicken with Black Beans and cream cheese
- Veggie Omelets and Toast
- Crockpot Potato Chowder, rolls
- Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup
- Spaghetti and green beans
- Leftover Buffet
