Menu Plan Monday - 2013 Week 44
This week is Halloween. It's always a challenge when it falls in the middle of the week, and that's when my Crockpot comes in handy. Even though the kids have half-days, it's tough to fit everything in, like school events, pumpkin carving and Trick or Treating, not to mention dinner.
My plan for the last several years has been to make a big batch of chili in the Crockpot so that it's ready to eat when people are hungry. I also whip up a batch of Mummy Dogs, so the kids can eat something before they head out trick or treating, and typically re-heat one up when they get back.
It's easy, low-mess and filling . . .perfect before sending your little ghosts and goblins out into the neighborhood.
So here's what else is on the plan for this week:
Monday - Dad's working late, so it's Breakfast for Dinner
Tuesday - Ham Steak, Potatoes and Broccoli
Wednesday - Shrimp Scampi over Linguini
Thursday - Big Batch Chili with Cornbread and Mummy Dogs (our Halloween tradition)
Friday - Pizza Night
Saturday and Sunday - TBD
