Monday thru Friday Slow Cooker Meal Plan
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

Bread with Corn and Avocado Honey
I need to tell you: my life is so totally sweet sometimes. Like recently, I was contacted by the National Honey Board . It's true: I love the fact that I am someone who is contacted by the National Honey Board. They asked if I'd like some cool honeys to sample and test out in my baking, and I guess you can surmise what my answer was. Yes! Of course! I love baking with honey. So they sent me this little package of some very interesting honeys...including buckwheat, tupelo, alfalfa, and AVOCADO HONEY. Have you ever heard of such a thing? Apparently these varietals refer to the plants which the bees buzzed around (that is my paraphrased version of what happens). Whoa! Here they are, all in my hand. When is the last time you had a handful of honey? Since I've been very into baking bread recently, I thought that using some of the honey as part of the recipe (and to top it, with butter) would be a fine idea. I wanted to try a bread with part ground corn, so I thought the avocado honey would be a nice complement. So I mixed up my dough... of course, this included the honey... let it rise... and baked it up. Wow, my friends. I need to tell you that this was some of the nicest bread I've ever put in my mouth, and I've eaten my fair share of carbohydrates. The mix of whole wheat and corn flour gave it a nutty yet lightly sweet flavor, and it had just a touch of a nubbly texture to keep things interesting. I can't say I tasted any soupcon of avocado-ness per se, but the honey definitely had a complex and rich flavor. When topped with a pat of butter that melted instantly because the bread was still warm from the oven, and a dab of more avocado honey, it was just perfect. As a topping, the avocado honey was very interesting. It was almost like molasses honey--it was heavy and rich, but without the slight bitterness nature of molasses. Smoother. If you enjoy tasting different honey varietals (I do, it turns out!) this one is definitely worth seeking out. Oh, and here's that bread recipe. Lucky you! Bread with corn (not corn bread) Adapted from King Arthur Flour Yield: 1 large loaf 2 cups lukewarm water 2 1/4 teaspoons instant yeast (1 packet) 1 tablespoon honey (I used avocado honey ) 2 teaspoons salt (I got all fancy and used lavender rosemary salt ) 3 tablespoons soft butter 3 cups whole wheat flour 1 cup coarse grind cornmeal (I used Bob's Red Mill ) Procedure Combine the water and yeast. Once the yeast begins to bubble lightly, proceed. Mix all of the remaining ingredients with the yeast mixture in the order listed. Knead, either by hand with a dough scraper or with a stand mixer, until it has progressed past a shaggy texture to a solid, slightly sticky mass. This can take up to 5 minutes by hand; less when using a mixer. It will never quite take on the smooth elasticity of the honey-wheat variation of this bread, but the extra moisture is necessary as the whole grains will absorb it. Place the dough into a lightly greased bowl, cover it, and let it rise at room temperature until it’s quite puffy and doubled in size, 1 to 2 hours. Gently deflate the dough with your hand (a gentle pressing, not a knockout punch), and shape it into a fat 9″ log (it may still be slightly sticky; I used lightly oiled hands). Place it in a lightly greased 9″ x 5″ loaf pan. Cover the pan, and let the dough rise for 2 hours or even overnight, or until it has formed a crown which extends 1 inch or slightly more over the rim of the pan. Toward the end of the rising time, preheat the oven to 350°F. Bake the bread uncovered for 20 minutes. Tent it lightly with aluminum foil, and bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes, or until it is golden brown on top, and when knocked lightly, yields a slightly hollow sound. Remove the bread from the oven, and turn it out onto a rack to cool. When completely cool, wrap in plastic, and store at room temperature. Bread with butter and honey: what could be finer?
