Meal Planning Monday

I did not stick to my meal plan very well last week. I have a lot of things coming from the garden right now and I had to adjust some of my meals to use some things up. I also made a trip to the peach orchard and brought home a lot of peaches. So we also ate a lot of those.

It is supposed to be very hot here this week, most days over 100 degrees. That is too hot to use the oven. I am planning on using my crockpot quite a bit. I have several recipes from the Crockpot Lady that I have been wanting to try, so this week will be a good time to do that.

I am planning on starting our school year in two weeks. We home school so I have a lot to do to get ready for the school year. I almost skipped meal planning this week but I knew I had a lot to do and would regret it if I did not have a plan. One of my goals for the school year is to get better about fixing breakfast. It seems like we are having a lot of cereal and yogurt so I hope to improve at least a little in that area. If you have any good breakfast ideas let me know. I need some new recipes or suggestions.


Crockpot Grits

Crockpot French Toast








Hamburgers, Potato Salad, and Tomatoes

Pork Roast (in the crockpot but I am not sure what I am going to do, maybe with Mexican seasoning)

Ribs (in the crockpot)

Indonesian Chicken

Crockpot Gryos with home made pitas

Pork Enchiladas (like my chicken ones but with pork)

  1. Peach orchard? I am so jealous.

    I have seen people posting cockpot recipes for the summer, but it never really occured to me that using a crockpot would be cooler. What a great idea. Great looking recipes too.
