One of the things I do to save a little money and time throughout the week is do all of my meal planning and grocery shopping on the weekend. It does take some time and I find myself falling into a meal rut almost every weekend and look anywhere to find a new recipe. Luckily this last week I was lucky enough to get my new Family Fun magazine on Friday and it had a bunch of really yummy crock pot meals! I just had to share by far my favorite new crock pot recipe I got from the magazine. Super easy to set up the night before so all I had to do was turn the crock pot on in the morning and then come home to a hot meal (I hate doing the prep in the morning).
If you like any type of taco you will love these. They are sweet and spicy and the added cabbage gives it a nice crunch!
Since I have a toddler it’s also important that I can adapt a meal for toddler fingers and something she won’t turn up her nose to. This is great because I can easily turn it into a quesadilla for her for dinner and then it easily packs for a yummy lunch.
On a side note, I’m still in love with Eva’s Nibble Tray, it makes packing lunch so much easier!
For the rest of the week we have some other new recipes I can’t wait to try out along with some oldies:
- Pork Chops with Creamy Marsala Sauce
- Garlic Cream Sauce on fresh pasta (minus the shrimp)
- Cranberry Apple Pork Roast
- Crock Pot Beef and Broccoli
- Grilled Cheese
Have a great week!
