Menu Testing by a 3 year old

The last 2 weeks have been like a tornado.
Spinning, 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
Source - A Year of Slow Cooking
This recipe is a breeze to dump in the crockpot on the run out the door to work.
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:
Monday - BBQ Sandwiches (pork roast cooked in crockpot)
Tuesday - Brunswick Stew (from leftover bbq)
Wednesday - Chicken Enchiladas with Mexican rice
Friday - Clean out the Frig
Saturday - Family Reunion (probably taking a chicken dish and dessert)

Need ideas on meal planning for your busy schedule?
Check out Organizing Junkie on Monday for tons of weekly menu plan links.
Plus I have a master list of meals HERE.
So what's for dinner?????

  1. I wish I could get on a normal dinner plan...we are trying to eat out less. Those meatballs look delicious and I love white gravy!
