  • My husband loves it when I make this stuff in the crock pot stuff-thats what we actually call it lol!! You get a family pack on bottom sirloin packs aseason it with onion and garlic salt and throw that in the crock pot with abround 3-4 cans of stewed tomatoes!! Cook that until the meat just falls apart-usually 4-5 hours and serve it over white rice!! It's very yummy!

  • KatieP...we do chili in the crock pot so it is done when we get home from work. Tonight it is Sloppy Joes, as we are having family over for a bday party.

  • Tonight we're having Greek honey-lemon pork chops, asparagus, boiled potatoes, and salad. tomorrow night we're having homemade pizza. Wednesday night is the wedding rehearsal for our 2 best friends. DH is best man and I'm maid of honor. Afterwards we're having rehearsal dinner. Thursday is the wedding so I'm sure we'll eat something afterwards. Friday night their coming to our house and I'm making shrimp alfredo.

  • We're having chicken breasts and brown rice with a homemade black bean and corn salsa. Last week, I made a recipe that was SO easy and SO tasty, so I will definitely be making that again soon. Here's the recipe:


    I didn't have any precooked chicken, so I just sauteed the chicken in a little olive oil first with salt, pepper and a little minced garlic.

  • Have you tried making mini meatloves? I love them, they are so easy tomake and I make them with ground turkey so they are really healthy. My hubby and I love cranberry sauce, so I make mini meatloves with mashed sweet potatoes, green beans and cranberry sauce on the side. Its like a Thanksgiving meal on a weekday. Message me if you want the recipe
