Menu Plan Monday

Here's our menu for this week. It's a light week menu-wise at our house with two nights of me not cooking. Last night we had a french toast casserole with a yummy praline pecan topping and sausage and cooked apples. A perfect Sunday night fall meal!

Monday: Chick Fil A Kids Eat Free Night (This is unique to our local CFA. If you live near one, you should see if they do it. If not, look for restaurants that offer this during the week. This is a fun way to eat out without spending a ton.)

Tuesday: Barbecue Pork Chops on the grill, baked potato bar w/chopped broccoli on top of potatoes (Try it, it's good!)

Wednesday: Lime Chicken in the crockpot (included this recipe below), pasta side dish, green beans
Thursday: Spaghetti, Homemade French Baguettes, Salad

Friday: Pizza (I'll be out of town so Curt and the kids will order pizza.)

Lime Chicken In Crockpot

1/4 cup dijon mustard

1/4 cup honey

1 Tbsp. soy sauce

2 minced garlic cloves

3 Tbsp. margarita mix (or juice of one lime)

Mix all sauce ingredients and pour over chicken in crockpot. Cook on low for 7-9 hours.
Pin It!

Marybeth, I am new to the crockpot cooking circle - how much chicken do you use? Thanks for the post looking forward to trying it. Melody

I use about 2 lbs usually. I buy them fresh and/or frozen-- just depending on what is on sale. If you buy them frozen, thaw them FULLY first-- otherwise you get too much water in your sauce!
