Menu Monday

Baseball equals crock pot. The only way I can keep up with the home cooked meals during sports seasons is to use my slow cooker. I actually have two, so one is usually holding leftovers in the fridge to be used for lunches or midnight snacks and the other is on the counter making me look good. My favorite crock pot cookbook is the classic Fix it and Forget It Lightly. It's so dog eared and marked up but it's definitely worth purchasing. So here's what's cooking this week.

Breakfasts: choice of...

Pumpkin bran muffins, yogurt and fruit smoothies, or eggs


Hamburger Rice Skillet

Bean and Ham Soup (from Fix it and Forget It), bread machine rolls
Burrito Casserole
Egg Salad Sandwiches and veggie plate
Turkey and Rice Slow Cooker Casserole (from Fix it and Forget It)
Baked Meatballs in Tomato Sauce, Garlicky Potatoes (F & F)
Leftover Buffet

Looks like a yummy menu! I have the Fix It and Forget It cookbook, but not the "Lightly" one....I've been considering getting it so I'm glad to hear that you like it!

I really appreciate all the recipe links you have. I've honestly never made much use of online recipe websites -- which is entirely dumb -- I cook for a diabetic and, well, the nutritional info is all right there is front of you.

I have the regular Fix It and Forget About It too, but so many of the recipes involve canned soup, which I don't like to use a lot of. Is the light version better that way?

for us, it is "tax season" equals crockpot. thanks for sharing this one; i hadnt heard of it. We use our crockpot regulary right now with the house so busy. Besides being convenient; crock pot meals save money! i follow and stop by regularly. come over and and say hi sometime; we have a brand new look. (p.s. saved $124 on groceries last week using coupons!)
