Menu Plan Monday 8-18-2008

Last week, we tried a couple new recipes!

The Zesty Chicken BBQ - Crock Pot was good. I didn't have Italian dressing, so I substituted in lemon pepper. The sauce ended up being not a thick as I would have liked, but it was good! The Crock Pot Fettucini Alfredo was amazing too! I admit, I went with chicken breast instead of chicken thighs, trying to use what we have. Then, the Cheesy Chicken Parmesan was delicious. I'll be keeping all three for future use! I also made Oreo Bon Bons last week! Yummy! Click over for the recipe and photo directions!
Here is the plan for this week...

Monday - - Leftovers
Tuesday - - Slow Cooker Enchilada (originally from Motherhood for Dummies)

Slow Cooker Enchiladas

1 lbs. lean ground beef
10 (6 inch) corn tortillas, quartered
1 (1.5 ounce) taco seasoning mix
1 1/4 cups water
1 (12 ounce) jar chunky salsa
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
4 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend

1. Cook beef, then add taco seasoning and water
2. Stir together salsa, cream of mushroom soup & cream of chicken soup. Mix in most of the cheese, reserving some for top.
3. Place a layer of tortillas on the bottom of a slow cooker. Scoop a layer of the ground beef over that, and then a layer of cheese/soup mixture. Repeat the layers until you run out of stuff, ending with a layer of tortillas on the top. Top with remaining cheese.
4. Cover and cook for 45 mins - 1 hour.

Wednesday - - Brats, mac and cheese
Thursday - - Tater Tot Casserole
Friday - - Leftovers
Saturday - - Chicken and Potatoes
Sunday - - Pancakes and sausage
