The last 2 weeks have been like a tornado.
Spinning, huge...life changing. At least for a little while.
I had a sketch of a menu last week, in my head, not on paper.
Tossed in a tried goodie and a new recipe.
Homemade meatballs over mashed potatoes with white gravy.
I based my meatball recipe on this one, with a few variations. Like leaving out the onions.
This is a quick, easy meal; great to toss together after work.
Plus it is KID APPROVED! Wil loved it, even asked for seconds.
I also tried a new crockpot recipe.
Crockpot Orange-Apricot Pork Chops

I omitted the cloves, as I didn't have any in the pantry.
My chops cooked to pieces, hence her photo! However, this is now in our meal rotation.
Wil's response on his first bite - YUMMMMmmmmm. Kid approval stamp.
Served with baked sweet potatoes and steamed broccoli.
Great taste and the pork would melt in your mouth!
I decided this week needed more structure. So here's my plan:
Sunday - My Easy Chicken Pot Pie
Monday - BBQ Sandwiches (pork roast cooked in crockpot)
Ranch potato wedges & slaw
Tuesday - Brunswick Stew (from leftover bbq)
Wednesday - Chicken Enchiladas with Mexican rice
Thursday - Broccoli Chicken Alfredo
Friday - Clean out the Frig
Saturday - Family Reunion (probably taking a chicken dish and dessert)
Need ideas on meal planning for your busy schedule?
So what's for dinner?????
