awesome day and menu planning for the week

First I had an awesome day today! Out to breakfast with Rach and our boys and dying easter eggs. Then after a quick nap - Eric, Gavin, the dog, and I went for a hike at a local state park. It was Gavins first real hike - we had a blast!

So went shopping today for this weeks meals but plan to do the prepping tomorrow - this is whats on the agenda

Monday - Slow cooker italian potroast, brown rice, brocoli
Tues - leftovers
Wed - Slow cooker chicken and rice with mushrooms, greenbeans and a salad
Thur - chicken enchiladas
Fri - leftovers
Sat - steaks on the grill, sauted mushrooms and asparagus

I am going to make a big batch of homemade salsa, cut up carrots/celery for dipping in hummus, cut up pinapple and cantalope.

The slow cooker meals are because mon/wed sucks in our house - G has taikwondo from 5-530 so having to make dinner after I get home is horrible and we end up eating out or ordering food those nights.


  1. I don't eat red meat, but that chicken and rice w/mushrooms sounds good. Can I get the recipe? My husband just bought a slow cooker last week to make some kind of pork (don't eat that either), I figure I could get my hands on it and surprise him w/ dinner.
    If you want to, you can send it to my email:

  2. Laurie I will email you too but for everyone else...

    There is a GREAT blog with daily slow cooker meals on it - it rocks!
