Menu Plan Monday Oct. 7

Baby Sid is pretty determined to feed himself these days.  Which is great for me.

At lest when we are home, cause it can get a tad messy.

He really likes using a fork.


I love using my crock pot.  I love having our dinner cooking while I am at work.  I just have to remember to get it ready in the morning.

This week I am going to try a new recipe (tonight’s dinner).  I usually make a stuffed shell with a tomato sauce and hamburger with fennel, so it has a wonderful spicy flavor.

I decided to try making stuffed shells with chicken alfredo instead.  Then I thought “Why not try it in the crock pot?!” Because I don’t really want to pick up the boys, come home, cook the chicken, then put everything in the oven.  And wait even longer for dinner.

So in the crock pot the chicken alfredo will go, then I will stuff the shells when I get home and bake.  I plan on boiling the shells before work and leaving them in the fridge for the day.  Same for the garlic knot dough.

Of course if you are reading this then I will already have done all that.

Oh the paradox of scheduling a post for some time in the future….
