Menu Plan Monday

07 July 2008
As you know from my previous post, we are completely gutting and remodeling the kitchen, so cooking has been quite challenging. I'll admit we've been eating a lot of sandwiches and Banquet dinners, which is not the kind of stuff I want to feed my family really often. So, this week I wanted to cook real food at home. My options are a crock pot, microwave, electric griddle, and a waffle/sandwich maker.

I am using the crock pot exclusively this week. Having run out of crock pot inspiration, I turned to the Internet for some new recipes. I discovered the most wonderful blog, A Year of Crockpotting , which chronicles one woman's new year's resolution of using her crock pot all year. It's a great blog and very inspiring! So, quite a few of these recipes came from there.

Tuesday: Unstuffed Cabbage - I've made this forever. It's simply cabbage roll ingredients made with shredded cabbage rather than whole leaves. Less fuss, same yummy flavor.

Wednesday: Chicken Tacos

Thursday: Crock Pot Hamburgers I never would have thought of this in a million years!

We are going out of town over the weekend, so this is it for the week. I'll probably be doing more crock pot recipes next week.

I'd love it if you'd share your favorite crock pot and microwave recipes with me! One can never have too many yummy recipes and I love trying new ones!

Crock pot fried chicken! Wow, I thought I had seen it all re: crock pots. I'm afraid I don't have anything newer than that to add to your recipes, but I do thank you for adding to mine!
