With summer in full-swing, I realized I skipped my menu plan post last week when Wednesday came around - oops! Back on track this week!
Check out my post below about making water kefir - it's really fun to make and has been a great success so far! It's a great substitute for plain fruit juice or soda. I plan to mix it in with smoothies for my little guy, too!
For more menu planning ideas, check out a site I recently discovered - Once a Month Mom - for some great batch cooking/freezing ideas!
Onto my menu this week...
Monday: Mom's group get together - hot dogs, chips, fruit, veggies, etc.
Tuesday - Crock Pot Roast Chicken with honeyed carrots (from my traditional foods menu mailer)
**I will be using the crock pot again to make chicken broth with the bones from my roast chicken.... stay tuned for more details.
**I highly recommend roasting a whole chicken in the crock pot - very economical and some of the best chicken you will ever eat!!
Wednesday - Mexican Sloppy Joe's and green beans (I will be pulling this out of the freezer, I made a double batch a couple of weeks ago)
Thursday - Crock pot pork chops (I'll use this recipe but sub in the chops - they were on sale this week)
Friday - Date night... Twins/Brewers Game!
Saturday - Headed to the cabin! I will be making Grilled Honey Lime Chicken from my traditional foods menu mailer)
