Meal Planning Tuesday

by Wendy Copley on February 17, 2009

I’m cooking out of the freezer again this week. I’ve been socking stuff away in there for a few weeks and now it’s too full to get any ice cream products in there, so it’s imperative that I use some of the stuff in there up.

Tuesday: Ravioli and Spinach Bake (Six O’Clock Scramble), green veggie

Wednesday: Lamb chops, some kind of boxed rice pilaf, veggie

Thursday: Sour Cream Salsa Chicken, rice, salad.

This is our favorite crock-pot dish! It’s so easy. Put 3-4 chicken breasts into the crockpot. I usually put them in frozen even though I know that’s a health department no-no. That being said, we’ve never had a problem. Dump a jar of salsa on top. The better the salsa, the better the dish. Cook it until the chicken is done. I usually cook it on high for 3-4 hours, or on low for 6-8 hours, but it will depend on your crockpot. When the chicken is cooked through, shred it with a couple of forks (or not). Dump it back in the crockpot and stir in anywhere between 1/2 cup to 1 cup of lite sour cream. Let it warm up a bit and then serve it over the rice.

Friday: Baked Turkey Chimichangas (Six O’Clock Scramble), salad, chips and salsa  (I never got to this last week)

Saturday: Corn and Wild Rice Soup (Six O’Clock Scramble), garlic bread

Sunday: Chicken and Veggie Pot Pie (Saving Dinner), salad

Monday: Spaghetti — This will be subbed in whichever day it is that I’m too lazy to cook what I’ve planned for the night.

    I read your post this morning and thought the Salsa Chicken sounded good. I had all the stuff so I got up and filled the Crock Pot. Very tasty. It is a little like something we do. We put Won Ton wrappers in a muffin tin. After baking them for about 15 minutes you add the chicken and salsa mixture and then bake about 10 more minutes. Adding sour cream and black olives makes it really good and you get 6 won tons for 6 points. Makes a great party food.

  • Amy — From what I’ve read, there is a danger that frozen chicken won’t heat up fast enough if you put it in the crock-pot and that will allow bacteria to grow which could make you sick. Like I said –we’ve never had a problem.

  • I do frozen chicken as well and have never had a problem. Good Morning America is having a crock pot contest with Emeril! And on the topic of crock pots there is a blog 365 crockpot where she tried recipes and crafts in her crockpots for a whole year. Hope you get your freezer cleared out for ice cream and your meals sound yummy!
