Menu Plan Monday 12/21 ~ Soups, Simplicity and Sanity

I have been making more Crock-pot meals lately since it is easy to throw it together in the morning and I do not have to fret about it when I get home in the afternoon. I know this week is going to fly by since Christmas is almost here, so I catered this weeks menu to Crock-pot or quick and easy meals. My goal is to keep it simple to keep my sanity around here.

  • Chili and Cornbread
  • Bean Chilito's – Chili Cheese and bean burritos (heat tortilla in pan. Smear refried beans down the middle of the burrito. Add cheese and leftover chili; roll up and serve. 
  • Corn Chowder (I use this with a few modifications: milk instead of half and half, omit bacon and just saute the onions in 2 tbsp bacon grease)
  • Black Eyed Pea Restaurant's Broccoli Cheese soup (family favorite for years!)
  • Ham, Scalloped Potatoes and Green Beans
  • Turkey Pot Pie


  1. I love the crockpot! I'll be needing to pull mine out when I return to work.
    You have a delicious menu planned!
    I’m so glad that my husband isn’t working on Christmas Eve and Christmas. He really needs the days off.
    Here’s wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas!
