Made a Menu

Monday means I'm down to the last week of the 2ww and the last week of my detox. Yay!

Since we're currently out of Dream Dinners till our next session, I had to make our meal plan the old-fashioned way, aka stare at food blogs till I find something that a) fits with my detox, b) looks good, and c) doesn't look too complicated.

This week, I'll be borrowing heavily from A Year of Slow Cooking. I highly recommend this site for anyone looking for slow cooker ("CrockPot") recipes.

Here's the plan:

Monday: Angelhair rice pasta with meat sauce (ground turkey, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce)
Tuesday: Applesauce Chicken (CrockPot) w/ steamed broccoli
Wednesday: Hoisin Drumsticks (CrockPot) w/ brown rice and stir-fried veggies
Thursday: Indian Chicken Curry (CrockPot) w/ quinoa
Friday: Holiday Party at our building
Saturday: Dinner Out OR Fish w/ spiced quinoa mix & steamed veggies
Sunday: Salsa Chicken (CrockPot) w/ brown rice

You are a MACHINE, woman!

Brian would kill for me to be so organized with our dinners... Plus all those recipies sound great. I'm hoping to get a Crockpot for christmas this year, so that link should come in handy, thanks. =)

Glad to hear you're hanging in there with your tww. Still crossing everything for you.

Thanks for the slow cooker site. I love my crock pot but all I cook in it is turkey and pulled pork. Now, I can branch out.
Hoping the rest of your 2WW goes quick.

That book sounds great. What kind of crockpot do you have? Mine is a basic Cuisinart one and even on the warm setting it seriously over-cooks food. I mean, obviously I can just cook it for less time, but I bought it with the hope that I could toss stuff in it and get home 8 hrs later from work and have dinner all made. Any advice?

Wow! I'm seriously impressed. I think I may just have to steal some of your ideas for this week and make them our own.

I could sit down and come up with a weeks menus, but then something inevitable occurs to throw me off and they never happen.
(I'm thinking about you this week)
