Meal Plan Monday: Easy Recipes Roundup

Welcome to a new week, and a new month! I hope you all had as much of a festive Halloween as we certainly did! If the amount of candy is any measure of fun, we had more than our share! Besides trick-or-treating, I also hosted about 20 kids at my house for a little birthday party for my daughter. It was very fun, and very exhausting! And now my fridge is full of leftovers that I will enjoy, and that is about it. There is no plan in place for any real meal that doesn’t involve a cracker or piece of cheese.  Therefore, Menu Plan Monday after a seriously fun and busy weekend means, I am going to Pinterest to pull it together! After all, shouldn’t there be a reason why I pin all those recipes?  Here’s the lowdown for the week:

November 1-7

easy recipes

Find these recipes from the links below:

1. Crockpot Pork Chops with Creamy Herb Sauce from Crockpot Gourmet

2. Crockpot Barbecue Chicken from Stick a Fork in It

3. Kung Pao Chicken from Fit Foodie Finds

4. Creamy Tortellini Tomato Soup from Two Peas and Their Pod

5. Double Pepper Pork Chops from HAG

Don’t these look good?! My daughter was sitting next to me when I was typing and gave me the third degree: “what’s in that?” and “will I have to eat those green things?!” …So it goes without saying that I adapt all of these, to serve the beans on the side, and basically break-down the meals to suit what I know my kids will eat…or sort of eat.  Have a great week my friends~
