Menu and Crock Pot Potato Soup Recipe


Happy New Year Everyone and Happy Getting Back to Normal Life!

This week starts with a mad rush and ends pretty much the same way it started, but I am excited to actually have more control over my meals again.  It seems like all I did for two weeks was graze, and I enjoyed every minute of it!  But now, meals and snacks are going to be fewer and more far between.

Our meals this week started off using the crockpot.  Last night, I put all the ingredients in a crock pot and then this morning before leaving all  I had to do was turn it to low and forget about it.  Hopefully, most of the meals this week will be just as easy, but I do have some that require some preparation and then the oven timer.

Here is our menu for the week and please go to the end of the post for a super easy crock pot recipe.

Monday:  Crock pot potato soup

Tuesday:  Beef burritos made from stew meat prepared in a crock pot. Corn

Wednesday:  Shepherds Pie with mixed veggies in the pie.

Thursday:  Pulled Pork Spaghetti and salad

Friday:  Grilled cheese sandwich bar and fruit

Saturday:  Leftover day!

Sunday:  Dinner with friends

Oh boy, I am looking forward to my creation on Thursday!

But here is todays recipe and what we had for dinner tonight.  Super easy and very good!

Crock Pot Potato Soup

8-10 potatoes

1 onion thinly sliced

1 stick of butter cut into cubes

1/4 flour

Ham cut into cubes

3-4 cups milk

Place one layer of potatoes on the bottom of your crock pot.  Place some of onions over potatoes, then a little of your butter and ham.  Next layer of potatoes, onions, ham, butter but then add all your flour.  Finish with a final layer of potatoes, ham, onions, and butter.  Pour milk over the top until it is 2/3 the way up your crock pot.  Turn on low for 10 hours  while you are gone.  So yummy!
