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
1 onion thinly sliced
1 stick of butter cut into cubes
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!
