Menu Plan Monday, March 3, 2008

March is here! That means Spring is on the way! HOORAY! I'm tired of the cold and snow.

Last week, we didn't get the BBQ Chicken Pasta made or the Wedding Soup on Saturday because we had errands to run. (see We did it! ) Hockey season is officially over, so our evenings will once again be ours until a tournament later this month. Here's this week's plan:

Sunday~Crockpot Roast Chicken (see below), Mashed Potatoes with Gravy, Steamed Corn

Monday~BBQ Beef Fajitas, Seasoned Rice and Baked Beans

Tuesday~ Chicken Shephard's Pie (using the leftover chicken from Sunday) and Salad

Wednesday~ Slow Cooker Pot Roast with potatoes and carrots

Thursday~ Spaghetti and Meatballs, Salad

Friday~ Fish Fry from Church

Saturday~Italian Wedding Soup

I made the Crock Pot Roast Chicken today for dinner. It was delicious! I rinsed out a whole chicken, stuffed the cavity with one small onion, quartered and 3 cloves of smashed garlic. Then I rubbed ground sage, a wee bit of salt, paprika, garlic powder and Mrs. Dash garlic and herb seasoning on the outside of the bird. I placed 3 aluminum foil balls on the bottom of the crockpot and poured in a can of low sodium chicken broth over them, then placed the chicken on top. I cooked it on high for 2 hours and low for 5 hours. It was fall off the bone tender and very flavorful. The juices in the bottom of the crockpot made wonderful gravy. I just poured it into a pan and added a slurry of flour and water, brought it to a boil and let it simmer, stirring often, for about 10 minutes. It was yummy!

Have a wonderful week! Be sure to check out more great menus at Orgjunkie
