Once again, the week started according to plan and then took a sharp detour. But I did discover a great new recipe, this Slow Cooker Chicken Mole. It is very easy to throw together in the slow cooker, not to mention makes the house smell great as it cooks. We ate it with tortillas one night and brown rice the next. Even my three year old enjoyed it! I also found a new fish stick recipe since my usual one has cheese in it. This Panko-Crusted Fish Sticks recipe was great – I used wild Alaskan cod though rather than tilapia. This is one of my three year olds favorite meals so I like to include it from time to time to cater to his tastes, focusing on healthy fish and good, fresh ingredients.
Here is this week’s menu plan:
Monday: Spicy Chicken Stew with a Strawberry Spinach Salad (bumped from last week)
Thursday: Crockpot Falafel with Whole Wheat Pita Bread and Roasted Squash
Friday: Bro-in-law & Sis-in-law Birthday Dinner (TBD)
Saturday: Corned Beef, Potatoes and Cabbage
Sunday: Clean out the Fridge!
