Meal Plan

This week I tried my darndest to figure out what we were having ahead of time.  We only had three nights because I have been on the road (I'm currently finding out how little time I can possibly spend in Houston and fly back). 

Sunday - we had baked potatoes that I had in the veggie bowl for a week or so.  It was time to eat them but potatoes are a special treat in our house.  Kevin wanted some chili to go on top, so to kill two birds with one stone, I made a big pot of chili which he spooned over his baked potato and dinner was done for that night and he had leftovers for his dinners this week when I wasn't home.  

Monday - leftover lasagna soup that I made last week.  Please tell me you all have made this.  It's reasonably healthy and extremely good.  


Tuesday - Crockpot buffalo chicken salad.  So I learned how to use my crockpot on Sunday.  It's been intimidating me.  I knew how to use my old school one but the one we got for our wedding is fancy.  I finally got the confidence to try it and it's going to be a regular.  Anyway, throw frozen chicken in the crockpot, top it with buffalo sauce and let it slow cook all day.  When you get home, shred the chicken and put it over shredded lettuce for a salad with whatever toppings you want.  Yum!

Sounds delicious! It's good to know I'm not the only one intimidated by my crock pot!

Those meals look delicious! It's always so hard to meal plan while traveling and working long hours, but the crock pot sounds like a great solution!

What part of Houston are you traveling to? While I live here - I try to leave as much as possible as well - which is why we are always Traveling! ;)

I am one of the worst cooks ever, but I've made a few good recipes in the crockpot, so I plan on looking for more once I graduate and cook for myself full-time!

I have never heard of lasagna soup but it sounds delicious!

My crockpot has intimidated me for quite some time too! I finally made a Mexican chicken in it not too long ago and was impressed! I'm going to have to add this buffalo chicken to our meals next week! (P.S. If you ever see @LazyDaisyMonograms liking your pictures on Instagram that's me!)

I'm so bad with meal planning! I try to each Sunday, but something always seems to throw me off somehow!

Yum! I love buffalo chicken and never thought to make it in the crock pot. Good idea, lady!

I still haven't broken out our new crock pot. I know I will love it, so I need to do that ASAP!
