Menu Plan Monday 8/22/11

mpm-1
We are so sticking to the menu plan, it's almost making me sick,
in a good way :o)
The crockpot adventure went well and it was super duper easy!
The highlight of the week was the Barbecue Chicken.
My only suggestion to you is that.... 
1.  It doesn't really resemble the picture so don't overcook in order
to get that beautiful must have been cooked on the grill look
2.  Keep the cooking time at 4-6 hours or the chicken dries out a bit.
I wasn't home though when this was started and it was edible and
a make again worthy meal.  I'll just give more specific instructions
on when to start the crock pot if I'm not here.
However, this is the week of school starting so.....
my food bill WILL be decreased
by around 90%.
I'm just saying.....
the pack of locusts that live here
will be eating at school, since we are definitely too cool to pack a lunch.
This idea may change however once he actually tastes what they offer for school lunch.
My Boy #2 has been known to be the foodie sort.
Anyway,  I'm using mostly the foods that I have in the freezer as we are trying
to clean it out....in a good way.
{especially since the sales are really not that great}
Hope your week is blessed.
