This week's Plan 4-25-10

Turns out my Crock Pot meals last week made a WHOLE LOT of food!  I have leftovers coming out the whazoo!  So folks, this week I'm only cooking two meals and I'm allowing my husband to sneak in and make (GHASP!)  a non-crock-pot meal!  I know, I know.....but, he really wants to cook a meal this week and I'm not going to argue!

Also, last week I featured a vegetarian dish and I'm going to do the same again this week.  My husband and I are trying to get in shape and we don't need to eat meat ALL the time.  It's a good change of pace for us, and hopefully for you too!  I also have several vegetarian friends following this blog and I want to make them happy too!  

Here's my plan for the week:

Monday - Leftovers

Tuesday - Leftovers

Wednesday - Hubby's Spaghetti

Thursday - Lime Chicken Tacos with Spanish Rice

Friday - Vegetarian Chili

I don't know how I'm going to make it all the way to Thursday to use my Crock Pot (tear)!  Meanwhile, keep sending me your crock pot stories through this blog and through facebook friends of mine!  I love to hear how your meals are turning out!

Also, I would like to give a shout out to my Aunt Vickie who has been consulting me all week about buying a new crock pot.  She has deemed me the crock pot queen!  LOL  Love you Aunt Vickie!

Happy Crock-Potting!

  1. I'm was totally blown away when I made a dessert in my 4 quart crock pot! I got the recipe from "Crock Pot Slow Cooker Recipes." Homestyle Apple Brown Betty-YUMMO! Crisp hot apples coated in a bread crumb topping smoothered in it's own apple juices. I added some vanilla ice cream and whip topping. Simply sinful!!

  2. Dessert recipe.....
    6 - cups apples, peeled, cored and cut into slices
    1 - cups bread crumbs
    3/4 - cup brown sugar
    1 - teaspoon cinnamon
    1 - teaspoon nutmeg
    1/8 - teaspoon salt
    1/2 - cup butter or margarine, melted
    1/4 - cup walnuts, finely chopped

    In the 3-quart or larger slow cooker, lay the apples in the bottom.

    In a mixing bowl, add the bread crumbs, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, brown sugar, butter and walnuts.
    Mix and spread mixture over the apples in the stoneware.

    Cover cook on LOW for 3 to 4 hours or on HIGH for 1-1/2 to 2 hours.
