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
Chicken and Cheese Taquito's with roasted brussel sprouts
Spicy Sausage Pasta with a said of fruit
Breakfast- Eggs, bacon and toast
