This is my first week at my full lesson schedule. Mondays and Tuesdays are both piano lesson days, so both nights need to be easy and quick meals. Stephen can cook, but won’t always be home in time to cook dinner. Most of the time I will probably be planning crockpot meals for both days. By the time I get back from running the babysitter home, it’s often close to 8pm. Since I don’t always have the time to eat before I begin lessons for the evening, I want something quick that’s ready when I’m done.

Here’s our menu:

Sunday
Breakfast – Cereal or Oatmeal
Dinner – Ham, brown rice, mixed veggies
Supper – Pinto beans (crockpot) and cornbread

Monday
Breakfast – Easy garden egg bake (new recipe from the Betty Crocker calendar)
Lunch – Sandwiches
Supper – Crockpot Taco Chicken Stew

Tuesday
Breakfast – Oatmeal
Lunch – Tuna Salad
Supper – Crockpot ribs, mashed sweet potatoes, green beans

Wednesday
Breakfast – Grits and eggs
Lunch – Macaroni and cheese
Supper – Grilled chicken over tossed salad

Thursday
Breakfast – Oatmeal Muffins
Lunch – Tossed Salad
Supper – Chicken and veggie bake/pot pie (mixed veggies and chicken with cream soup and sour cream sauce, and biscuits on top)

Friday
Breakfast – Oatmeal
Lunch – Egg Salad
Supper – Ham and cheddar Stromboli

Saturday
Breakfast – Wheat buttermilk biscuits and sausage gravy
Lunch – Chicken and green pepper stir fry with brown rice
Supper – Hot dogs and sweet potato fries

  1. We do eat a lot of oatmeal. DH doesn’t prefer it as much so he will often fix eggs for himself instead. Oatmeal muffins are so good. . .as is oatmeal cake. Haven’t made that in a while though. Would you mind sharing your baked oatmeal recipe? I’d love to see one.

  2. I see you have oatmeal in there quite often. We’ve been on an oatmeal kick of late. I made some super yummy oatmeal muffins – and substituted flax for the oil once and for the egg the second time – they turned out great! I also made baked oatmeal for the first time and it was a huge hit – and super easy!

  3. Hehehe. . . whatever I have in the house. I’m using a package my parents brought me as part of a mixed lot of meat.

    I think it’s pork ribs, but I hope it’s beef. I won’t know until I unwrap the paper. Probably bone in, and definitely short.

    I’ll do one of two things in the morning. Either I’ll dump a whole ton of homemade bbq sauce on it, or I’ll put water, liquid smoke (which I think I’m out of), soy and worcestershire sauces in with the ribs. It gives it kind of a smoked flavor. It depends on what time I remember to put them in the crockpot too. I prefer the sauce but don’t have any made up at the moment so it all depends on whether I feel like making some or not.

    I’m so organized, aren’t I? HA!

  4. how do you do your crockpot ribs? what kind of ribs do you use? pork, beef long short, bone or boneless?
