  2. Monday thru Friday Slow Cooker Meal Plan for the Fall

    Fri, 4 Oct 2013

    HAPPY CROCKTOBER!! In honor of the first Friday in Crocktober, I have put together another meal plan for you. I love the fall, and I of course LOVE Crocktober, but I am beyond relieved that this week is over. It was a doozy. next week will be better, though, because I'm going to stick to a game meal plan! (meatless) Monday: End of Summer Harvest Soup Tuesday: 20-40 Cove Garlic Chicken Wednesday: Autumn Sausage Casserole Thursday: Orange-Apricot Pork Chops Friday: Chicken Enchilada Chili Shopping List: (to print out just the list, use the PRINT button at the bottom of the post and delete any photos and extraneous text) PRODUCE: Apples (2 green or yellow) Carrots (1/2 cup chopped) Celery (2 stalks) Garlic (2-4 heads, up to 40 cloves) Onions (4 yellow) Tomatoes, baby (2 cups) Zuchinni (4 med) Yellow Crooked Neck Summer Squash (2 med) DAIRY: Parmesan Cheese (not a lot, for garnishing ) Mozzarella or Cheddar Cheese (shredded, to add to Harvest Soup and Enchilada Chili) Sour Cream (1/2 cup or so for Chili) MEAT: 4 pounds chicken parts, or 1 roaster chicken 1 1/2 pounds additional chicken for Chili 6 pork chops 1 pound smoked chicken sausage (artichoke garlic or similar, I like Aidells brand) DRY GOODS: Pasta (1/2 cup, we use gluten free) Rice (3 cups already-cooked white or brown rice) Beans (dry white, 1/3 cup) CANNED: 2 (15-ounce) cans pinto beans 1 (11-ounce) can mandarin oranges Pasta sauce (1 jar; will need 1 cup) 2 (14.5-ounce) cans diced tomatoes with garlic 5 cups chicken or vegetable broth (for soup and for autumn casserole) 1 can enchilada sauce (will need 1 cup; read labels carefully for gluten) BAKING NEEDS: Brown Sugar (1/4 cup) Raisins (1/2 cup) 1 cup Apricot Jam SPICES: Paprika (2 tsp) Italian Seasoning (1 tablespoon) Chili Powder (2 tsp) Cumin (1 tsp) Parsley flakes (1 tablespoon) All Spice (1/2 tsp) Cinnamon (1 tsp) Ginger (1/4 tsp) Cloves (1/4 tsp) Pantry Staples: Olive Oil (1 tablespoon) Kosher Salt (2 tsp) Black Pepper (2 tsp) The Verdict: I know that this grocery list is a bit longer than the previous meal plan's -- but everything should be very easy to find in your regular grocery store and hopefully you already own a bunch of the spices! My eldest daughter turned 12 today. Which really can't be correct, because I am nowhere near old enough to have a 12-year-old. Five years ago I surprised her on her birthday with caramel apples . This year she has braces and can't have them, and has requested sushi for dinner. I'm pretty sure I can't find a way to make sushi in the crockpot... have a wonderful weekend! Happy Slow Cooking this Crocktober! . . . . Make sure to visit my store page for my books, recommended slow cookers, and other fun slow-cooking stuff. Thank you for your support! --steph
