Weekly Menu with Recipe Reviews

Crockpot Apple Cake
Last week's menu was quick and easy all the way.  We decided, at the last minute to attend a Homecoming Football game Friday night, so it was Subway sandwiches, prior to the game.  This week we tossed in a few new recipes to try.  The first one was the Crockpot Apple Cake that I baked up today.  It was good, but not 'outstanding'.  Expected a bit more 'cake' feel and it is more like bread.  Very tasty and simple to make, just wouldn't deem it a 'cake'.  Since it's apple season, if you are interested in trying it, you can find the recipe HERE.  

Sunday - Grilled burgers n hot dogs, potato salad, baked beans and Crockpot Apple Cake
Also, baking up Sausage cheese balls for a quick snack this week.
Monday - Sloppy Joes with Ranch potato wedges
Tuesday - Leftover sloppy joes with chips (I put the sandwiches together after the meal, wrap them with plastic wrap and stick them in the fridge, then reheat in the microwave)
Wednesday - Salmon patties, mashed potatoes, english peas and biscuits
Thursday - Cream cheese Crockpot Chicken  (new recipe) served over noodles with broccoli
Friday - Leftovers
Saturday - Dinner out
A couple of weeks ago, we tried 3 new Crockpot recipes with delicious results!  Here's the low down:
Kansas City Sue's Chicken cooked up easily, but just didn't deliver the taste I was looking for from the ingredients.  It wasn't 'bad', just ok.  Not sure this recipe will make the menu cut again.
Maple Brown Sugar Ham was to die for!  The glaze and juices were delicious.  The ham fell apart.  This recipe was SO very Yummy, that I volunteered to cook it for our Thanksgiving Dinner.  If you like ham...You.must.try.it!  Do you remember, I said I cooked this up in the Crockpot too?  A great tip, if your ham is too large, just cover with 2 layers of aluminum foil (worked perfect).
Homestyle Beef Stew was another My Kitchen Cafe recipe.  A very hearty and tasty stew. The only thing I will alter next time is peeling the potatoes because the skin was falling off anyway. This is a great recipe for having leftovers.  The flavors actually blend and are more tasty the next day.
What are you cooking up this week?
