I bought a new cook book today. It is a crock pot cook book and I’m anxious to try some new recipes. I’ve been on a Christmas planning kick ever since ordering Christmas cards a couple weeks ago. One area I struggle with is serving food to company for several days. I plan ahead but time and circumstances always seem to get in the way. This year I hope to test some new crock pot recipes early so they are ready for company to come, as well as the ever typical busy everyday.
So here’s what I’m thinking…
lunch – sausage, pancakes, banana, strawberries & milk
supper – everyone will be gone to different events & eating there
lunch – Cauliflower & Tuna Casserole, peaches & milk
supper – Three-Bean Burrito Bake, chips, corn & milk
lunch – shredded chicken on buns, baked beans, apple slices & milk
supper – Cheesy Chicken Casserole, green beans, salad & milk
lunch – pepperoni pizza, salad, carrots, milk
supper – leftovers
lunch – spaghetti & meatballs, green beans, milk
supper – brats, potato wedges & fruit
lunch – pb&j sandwiches, carrot sticks and fruit
supper – snack food, sloppy joes, other fun food since the kids are both having friends over that day to go trick-or-treating with them
lunch – leftovers
supper – potato soup, cheese & crackers, fresh veggies
There you have it…some new recipes and easy favorites. Breakfasts will be the usual, fruit with some combination of cereal, bagels, english muffins, pancakes or oatmeal. I might try a new scone recipe, we’ll see.
