Menu Monday

It's still not exactly a normal week in the Brown household.  Why does going on vacation have to suck so bad when you get back?  I had 726 emails in my work inbox.  726...HOW DOES THAT EVEN HAPPEN?

Mon: Crock Pot Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

We actually had this last night too and it was really good and easy.  We also had it for lunch today.  Soup overload!

Tues: Mustard Pork Chops with Mashed Potatoes
Pork chops were on sale and we have a ton of potatoes from KB's mom.  I spent a total of around $3 on this meal....score!

Wed: Crock Pot Butternut Squash Soup
Butternut squash were also on sale.  I'm never really sure what to do with them, so we're going to try some soup.  The recipe looks like this will taste very "fall-y".  It's got apples, carrots, cinnamon and squash.  I'm pretty sure KB won't like it, but oh well.

Thurs: Crock Pot Pineapple Chicken

It's pretty obvious that I'm loving my crock pot currently.  I'm slowly working on cleaning up our house from being gone last week and at night I don't feel like cooking, working out, and cleaning.  At least with the crock pot one of these is done by the time I get home.

What goodies are you making this week?


  1. Ooooh I need to try the chicken and wild rice soup. One of my favs!


  2. I've got that chicken soup pinned too! I need to make when it cools off again.
