SUNDAY:  Country Style Macaroni and Cheese Recipe – This is a long time family favorite and a GREAT way to use up leftover ham!

MONDAY:  Slow Cooker Chile Colorado burritos – I discovered this recipe on Pinterest and it has become a family favorite.  I could make it once a week and no one would complain!


TUESDAY:  Cheesy Baked Ravioli – This is a “quick fix” meal that’s easy to throw together when you don’t really feel like cooking!  You can’t go wrong with Ravioli!

WEDNESDAY:  Melt in Your Mouth Meatloaf  – Yes, it’s meatloaf and yet it’s a hit every time I make it…one of those recipes I can never go wrong with!

THURSDAY:  Crockpot chicken and rice – I came up with this recipe after experimenting a bit and couldn’t come up with a more original name.  It’s yummy and easy to make!

2-3 frozen chicken breasts
1 pkg McCormick Zesty Herb chicken seasoning blend (sometimes I substitute the Good Seasonings Italian dressing blend if I have it on hand)
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 c. hot cooked rice
Grated cheese
Bell peppers

Place frozen chicken breasts in the bottom of the crockpot. Mix ingredients for McCormick seasoning according to directions on the packet and pour over the top of chicken. Cook on low for five hours. Shred chicken in crock pot using a knife and fork. Add cream of chicken soup. Let cook for one more hour. Service over rice with additional toppings as desired (we add cheese, celery, tomatoes, bell peppers, etc. depending on what we have on hand).


FRIDAY – Tasty Baked TacosA quick and easy recipe to round out the week!  This has become a family favorite!

SATURDAY:  Slow Cooker Garlic Pesto chicken – I found this one on Pinterest and it looks SO YUMMY!  I can’t wait to try it!
