Meal Plan Monday

In an effort to live a more simple and frugal life, I realized I need to get back to meal planning. It truly does save lots of time, headache and money! 
We have a WHOLE freezer full of organic, free-range meat to use up from our Meat CSA so we need to get a cookin'!

Here's what's on the menu
Monday- Ground beef soft tacos
Tuesday- Cheeseburgers on the grill
                Cole Slaw
Wednesday- Eating out w/ friends
Thursday- Crock pot roast Chicken and potatoes
Friday- Leftovers

Usually we have TONS of leftovers as it's just the two of us eating (Levi wishes!), and most meal recipes are for 4+, so Friday and Saturday and even Sunday is usually various leftovers from the week!

Here's our recipe for Crock pot Roast's super easy!!

You'll need:
4-5 lb. Chicken
Olive oil
Various spices: salt, pepper, paprika, sage, parsley, Old Bay (you can really use what you like!)

Rub the chicken with olive oil, then sprinkle selected spices all over chicken. Rub in the spices.
Place in crockpot set on LOW for 8 hours.
Cut up veggies you prefer (we will do potatoes) and arrange around the chicken.

8 hours later...dinner is ready!!
Super easy!
We use the leftover meat for various other dishes... chicken pot pie, chicken enchiladas chicken tacos, etc.

Happy Eating!
