We have now gone two weeks without eating out AT ALL! I love that we’re saving money and having dinner together as a family, too! This week, the bonus challenge for the weight loss group that I belong to is to not eat out all week, so I’m hoping I’ll go another week without eating out!

SUNDAY: BBQ hot dogs and pasta salad
MONDAY: Chicken enchilada casserole – This is a recipe that my sister came up with. She uses canned chicken when she makes it. I usually cook my chicken in the slow cooker, but this week I actually have some leftover chicken from chicken ranch tacos, so I’m using that.
2 chicken breasts (shredded) – or 1 can chicken
1 large can red enchilada sauce
shredded cheese – I use reduced fat
Directions: (this is what I do) – I put my chicken and the enchilada sauce in the crockpot the night before and then shred it when I get up in the morning. If you are using canned chicken, you can just shred it as you are making the casserole. I spread some of the chicken/sauce mixture along the bottom of the casserole dish so it doesn’t stick. Break corn tortillas into four pieces and layer across the bottom of the casserole dish. Spread a layer of the chicken/sauce mixture and cheese. Add another layer of corn tortillas. Continue until you are out of the chicken/sauce mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes until the cheese is bubbly.
TUESDAY: Hobo Stew – This is an easy slow cooker recipe. It’s like beef stew but with meatballs!
WEDNESDAY: Easy Sweet & Sour pork recipe – This is a recipe from my mother in law. It’s quick and easy to make and kid friendly, too!
THURSDAY: Melt in Your Mouth Meatloaf – This is a favorite recipe in my house and I love it because you can just dump it in the slow cooker and let it cook all day!
FRIDAY: Oven Tacos – My family loves tacos, and I’m always looking for new recipes to try. I found this one on Pinterest a few weeks ago and can’t wait to try it!
SATURDAY: Slow Cooker Lasagne – I’ve had this on my “to try” list for awhile, and since I’m off work today, I figured it would be a good day to try it!
