What We’re Eating This Week – November 12

My White Chicken Chili dinner

Well, I enjoyed one week of a somewhat non-busy schedule, only be thrown into another something almost every night kind of week. This week, on top of our normal activities, we have parent/teacher conferences one night and a half day and full day off from school during the week. Nice for my Roo, but a bit of a logistical and planning nightmare for two working parents! So I am doing easy and crockpot meals this week to at least make dinner time a little less stressful!  I’ll be linking up on I’m an Organizing Junkie if you’re looking for more meal planning ideas! Or check out and follow my Yummy board on Pinterest! Interested in meal planning? Check out my post on meal planning.

Here’s what we’re eating this week:

Breakfasts (we don’t plan for each day – see here for why – but these are our choices along with a fruit)

  • Cream of Wheat or oatmeal
  • Toast or English Muffins

This week I’m trying a new beef stew recipe. It’s a combination of two different recipes in one of my favorite crock pot cookbooks, Crock-It by Barbara Murray. Simple and hopefully yummy!

Beef Stew

2 pounds stew meat

6-8 carrots

3-4 potatoes

1 onion

1 can cream style corn

1 can tomato soup

1 tsp beef granules

1 bag frozen green beans

Mix all ingredients in the crock pot and cook on low 8-10 hours.
