Meal Planning Monday

I am trying a few new things this week.  First I have planned for 2 weeks of meals.  I made a detailed grocery list and printed out all of the recipes.  I don't usual print out the recipes, just save them on whatever app I am using that week that I found it on.  I am also trying out a new app called Pepperplate.  I used this before but, it took too much time to set up.  I am going to give it a go again and see if it makes things easier.  

I will still have to go back at least once more for fresh fruit and vegetables and of course more milk.
If I can start shopping every 2 weeks I think it will save lots of time and money.

I know that most families don't make dinner every night but we do.  A full dinner every night that always includes a main course and sides.  We also rarely eat leftovers and I don't usually cook ahead to have leftovers.  That is something that I would like to change.  The crock pot is not something I usually use either.

This week I am going to try a few soups in the crock pot.
Hopefully these small changes I am making start to save me a little bit of time in the kitchen.

So, here is what I have planned in no particular order.

Five Spice Cream Cheese Chicken with Rice and steamed broccoli and cauliflower
Crockpot Sausage Spinach Tomato Soup with a side salad
Crockpot Meatball Soup with a side salad
Crockpot Chicken Soup with Mexican Seasonings
Turkey Taco's
Chicken and Cheese Taquito's with roasted brussel sprouts
Spicy Sausage Pasta with a said of fruit
Breakfast- Eggs, bacon and toast
