The weekend is at a close and it’s time again to put out the plan for the week’s meals. This week I took a look at my recipe repertoire and shook my head. There wasn’t much in there that I wanted to have this week. And considering how many of these recipes I truly enjoy, that’s saying something.
the search began.
Let me tell you. I found some really great new Dump & Ditch (aka Slow Cooker) recipes! I’m so excited! It’s going to take me a while to get through them all but I am SO on it!
Well, I’ve got three for ya this week. And we’re going to start things off right away…
Sunday – Tonight was a new one carried over from last week. Mac~n~Cheese Dump & Ditch style. Yay! I’ll be posting about it tomorrow.
Monday – Tomorrow holds Beef Stroganoff for us. For those of you that don’t know, this one is a Dump & Ditch. One of the early ones here at Mo’s Momstuff. It’s also one of the rare beef dishes. A definite recommend. And I’m doing carrots again this time, like with the original trial. This time however, I’ve made fabulous use of my newest kitchen acoutrement, the mandolin (you hear the choir singing here don’t you?!) and sliced up the carrots nicely. They’ll still be steamed and buttered but quite a bit easier to bite and hopefully a little more appealing to Justice.
Tuesday – New recipe #2 here. Sloppy Joes a la Dump & Ditch. I’ve never made sloppy joes and I don’t think I’ve had a sloppy joe in probably 6 years, maybe more. I found this recipe and thought it was definitely worth a try! I’m eager to try something new and a Dump & Ditch to boot…yay!
Wednesday – It’s Chicken Tetrazzini for our midweek meal. It’s quick, yummy and not done very frequently so….sounds good to me. Again, I’m sticking to the original trial here with the peas. It just works.
Thursday – Our 3rd and final newbie on the list; Sweet & Tangy Meatballs. I’ve heard this recipe once or twice and I’ve seen it many times on the internet. Well, I finally decided to give it a try. I’ll be serving it over rice (which I’ll be attempting in my “Multicooker” aka deep fryer.). I decided to throw in a little more color contrast and picked up some purple cauliflower for our veggie. Hmm…I was wanting to steam the cauliflower in the fryer… I’m going to have to rethink the logistics on this one. I’ll be sure to let you know how I work this one out…..just as soon as I figure it out!
Friday – It’s the little one’s favorite….Nachos!! Of course, I’m by no means implying that this one isn’t a favorite of us all. As a matter of fact, I’m pulling more and more people into our wonderful little web of nacho-goodness. We had this a couple of weeks ago when we had some perfectly pleasurable company over and it was quite a hit! (insert devious laughter here)
Saturday – The last day of our week is completely blank. 1st off, we should have plenty of leftovers by this time to carry us through, but 2ndly…it’s my birthday and I don’t wanna cook!! So there!
There it is my fab fans and followers. The recipe run down for the coming days. I am truly looking forward to adding these to the archive.
What about you? What’s scheduled to appear on your table this week?
