We really enjoyed the First time Friday menu last week of Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs with one major change--I used my crock pot instead of the grill. (I forgot to thaw out the chicken!) I just placed my frozen boneless chicken pieces in the crock, mixed up the marinade and poured it over the top, and cooked it on high for four hours. Like the title suggests, it was....yummy! It probably would have been even better if I hadn't forgotten to add the bell peppers. Here's our basic plan for this week:
Meatless Monday: Mac and cheese, fruit and veggie sticks
Tried and True Tuesday: Spaghetti, salad, garlic bread
Work less on Wednesday: The Crockpot Lady's Broccoli and Three Cheese Soup, crusty bread
Thanksgiving Thursday (named after traditional post-Thanksgiving menu planning): Leftovers
First time Friday: Quick and Easy Salmon Patties, potato wedges, salad (16 years of marriage and I just found out that hubby likes salmon patties!)
Simple Saturday: BLTs, fruit salad, chips
Slow Cooker Sunday: Bachelor's Roast (recipe below), potatoes, carrots, rolls
It doesn't get much easier than this:
3-4 lb roast (cheaper cuts are okay)
1 can of Coke (we use caffeine-free Coke Classic)
1 c ketchup
Place all of the ingredients in the crock and cook on low or medium all day (depending on how long you have before dinner). We usually add potatoes and carrots during the last couple of hours of cooking.
