  3. Monday thru Friday Slow Cooker Meal Plan

    Fri, 20 Sep 2013

    Happy Friday! I've got something  a bit different for you today. I've been trying to figure out how to best share how I meal plan with the slow cooker, and figured it'd be the easiest to just share my grocery list with you! I am a ZipList participant, so if this particular meal plan isn't your favorite, you can easily make your own by clicking on the "save recipe" button under each selection and ZipList will automatically make a customized grocery list for you. I also have a printable grocery list template on my downloads page that might be useful. In the mean time, this is what we're having next week in our house. I hope it's helpful! (meatless) Monday: Pesto Lasagna Tuesday: Super Simple Cranberry Roast Wednesday: Traditional Minestrone Soup Thursday: General Tso's Chicken Friday: Puffy Pizza Casserole Grocery List: (to print just this list, use the PRINT button below , and select just the list to print!) PRODUCE carrots (1 cup chopped) celery (1 cup sliced) garlic (5 cloves) onions (2 yellow) spinach (12-ounces baby leaves) potatoes (optional; to go with Tuesday's cranberry roast) DAIRY eggs (2) milk (1 cup; any variety) mozzarella cheese (24 ounces needed for week) parmesan cheese (1 1/2 cups) pesto (11 ounces) ricotta cheese (15-ounces) MEAT chicken (boneless, skinless, 1 to 2 pounds) lean ground beef or turkey (1 pound) beef or pork roast (3 pounds) sliced pepperoni (20 pieces) DRY GOODS 1.5-ounce envelope of Spaghetti Sauce mix (McCormick is GF) fusilli pasta lasagna noodles dried beans (1 cup, black beans or pinto) flour or gluten free baking mix (1 cup) rice (optional, to serve with General Tso's Chicken) soy sauce (1/4 cup, we use gluten free) CANNED cranberry sauce (16-ounce, whole berry) olives, sliced (4 ounces) pasta sauce (26 ounces) tomato, diced (14.5-ounces) tomato sauce (15-ounces) FROZEN spinach, chopped (10-ounces) stir fried veggies (16-ounces, Asian blend) PANTRY STAPLES beef bouillon or broth (8 cups) brown sugar (3 tablespoons) dried ginger (1 teaspoon) dried onion flakes (1-2 tablespoons) Italian Seasoning (1 tablespoon) red pepper flakes (1 teaspoon) The Verdict: Our week runs SO MUCH MORE SMOOTHLY when I take the time to write out a menu and grocery shop for all of the food either on the weekend or the week before. It does take a bit of planning, I know, but I do think you'll find that the hectic meal-making hours will be easier if the groceries are already in the house.  The slow cooker already forces you to meal plan, so just by using it (somewhat) regularly you're already way ahead!! have a great week! . . . . 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
