Week of September 26th

I posted some recipes, hopefully you enoy them!  Here's my menu for this week:)

Monday:  Tacos

Tuesday:  BBQ Chicken, Roasted Potatoes, Carrots

Wednesday:  Chili Beans and Cheaters

Thursday:  Hawaiian Haystacks

Friday:  Mongolian Beef

Saturday:   Kabobs with Seasoned Rice

Sunday:  Meatloaf and Potato Corn Chowder


Quick Crock Pot Chicken Stew


2-3 cups shredded chicken (leftovers from a roasted chicken, sometimes I use turkey)
32 oz chicken broth
6 carrots, peeled and sliced
2 stalks of celery, sliced
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove of garlic
1 cup frozen peas
1 can family sized Cream of Chicken soup
salt and pepper
Homemade egg noodles (or frozen if you don't have time)

Pour chicken broth in crock pot, add chicken, carrots, onions, celery, garlic, and salt and pepper if desired.  Cook on high for 3 hours or on low for 6 hours.  Add cream of chicken soup, peas, and noodles.  Cook for 1 hour on high or 2 hours on low.  That's it, Enjoy!


1-2 large eggs
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup flour (may need more)

Mix all ingredients together to form a sticky dough.  Flour counter top and roll out dough, cut with knife or pizza cutter.  Cut in long strips or squares.  Bring 2 quarts of water to a boil and drop noodles in.  Noodles may get tough if too much flour is added or boiled for too long.  This doesn't take long to do, but it may take a few times of trying to get the noodles the way you like them.

Crock Pot Mexican Chicken


3 chicken breasts or 12 tenderloins (no need to thaw them, just throw them in frozen)
1 can of Rotelle tomatoes with green chiles or 3 roma tomatoes cut up
1/4 - 1/2 cup green chile
1 package taco seasoning
2 T minced, dried onion

Put all ingredients in crock pot and cook on low 8 hours.  Towards end of cooking use fork to pull apart chicken.  Use in favorite recipe.

OOPS... I got busy

I didn't make time to put a menu up this week.  Of course this would be the week, I was asked on Saturday "do you really make all those meals on your blog?"  The answer is yes, mostly.  Sometimes when we will be out of town or I don't have to cook for a husband then I do quick, easy meals and LOTS of leftovers.  My recipes are usually pretty easy and take less than 40 min to make.  I will post some more recipes soon.  For now, we've eaten lots of leftovers this week.  We've also had:

Chicken Quesadillas
Orange Chicken

We were lucky to have family in town so we ate/will eat well this weekend.  Next week look for a MENU and 2 recipes for main dishes.  Enjoy your weekend.
