Week 3 - Make A Head Meal Menu

I have loved pre making my meals on Saturday or Sunday,  then not cooking for the rest of the week. It is awesome. It gives me SOOOO much more time in the evening.  I do not have to think what are we going to eat and way less clean up. I wish I had started this earlier.

I did my cooking on Saturday this week.

Sunday:  Beef Stew   Go here for RECIPE
    I made it on Saturday, reheated on Sunday and served with rice and crackers.

Monday: Calzone   Go here for RECIPE,     

 The next 4 meals I made together to fix in any order.  I got these recipes at The Test Kitchen of Melissa Fallis. She makes it so easy to prepare these meals.  Cheyanne helped me prep these meals.

-Chicken with Honey Sauce
-Oh So Easy Pork Chops
-Marinated and Baked Pork Chops
-Sesame Chicken

All 4 of these recipes can be found HERE.

I also made Beef Pepperoncini Sandwiches  Recipe Here.

Now I have meals for next week too.

Pre making meals makes my week soooo much easier :)

This Weeks Menu- Make Ahead Recipes

Now that football and cheer leading are in full swing, it is hard to get off work and prepare a fast and healthy dinner. As much as I love my Crock Pot, there are only so many meals I can make with that.
So I have started prepping meals on the weekend, so I can just pop them in the oven, eat and go.

It is a huge time saver and prevents us from having to grab a meal at the fast food restaurants.

I am not a huge fan cooking  Sunday, but during the week I never regret having these meals on hand.

This weeks MENU:

MONDAY:    Santa Fe Chicken Casserole   Recipe 

I omitted green onions and added pepper jack cheese.  I pre cooked the chicken in the Crock Pot.

TUESDAY : Stuffed shells (I made 2 pans, 1 to eat and 1 to freeze)   Recipe  Serve with bread and a salad

WEDNESDAY: No practice.  Pork chops.  I will be home to cook and the kids will be home to eat.

THURSDAY: Chicken Pot Pie  ( I made 2 pies, we will eat both in 1 night, YUM)  Recipe.  pre cooked chicken also in  the Crock Pot

FRIDAY: No Practice     Nachos     with ground beef I pre cooked.
