Menu Plan Monday - Week of August 17

MPM logo

I've missed participating in Menu Plan Monday over these last two weeks. It's been hot here and I've been trying to find meals that use the slow cooker or don't involve cooking at all. This week I'll be using the stovetop a couple of times, but avoiding the oven.

Monday: Pork roll sandwiches with tomato slices
Tuesday: Pasta with meatless sauce (from the freezer)
Wednesday: Garlic chicken (slow cooker recipe) with potatoes
Thursday: Pork and broccoli stir fry, rice
Friday: I don't have to cook!

The garlic chicken recipe was inspired by Anissa at Our Chaotic Life. I just put boneless chicken in the slow cooker with plenty of garlic (several cloves, sliced), a bit of lemon juice, a little butter, and enough water to keep it from drying out. This time I plan to try cooking potato wedges in the mixture, as well.

  2. The garlic chicken sounds delish! How long do you cook it? On low? Thanks for the visit...hope you'll be able to make it to the next party too. :)

  3. I hope you will plan to join me next week for Crock Pot Wednesday at Mister Linky will be up Tuesday ready for your delicious dish. Thanks for posting.
