New Term's Monday Menu Plan

In two days the kids will be back and life at school will be back at full tilt. I'm participating in a first aid course all day, so I expect I'll come home quite ready to turn my brain off for a while! There are a few things that I plan to do in the crockpot on busy days, that never seem to eventuate. Mostly because that would mean preparation in the morning. I'm going to try and be better at preparing the night before, for those things. So my bold move begins today with a crockpot meal to be removed from the fridge and popped into the heater part of the pot in short order.

Monday: Crockpot lasagna
Tuesday: Forgotten chicken, beans, carrots
Thursday: Bacon & mushroom pasta
Friday: Hither and thither
Saturday: same as Friday
Sunday: Chicken noodle soup

I'll need to make sure I get my chicken stock made sometime this week!

I have never made my own chicken stock, but it is on my list of things to cook one day. It is certainly soup weather now though!

I love homemade stock for soups. I threw it all in the crockpot the last time ~ carrot peelings, droopy celery and onion. Turned out beautifully.
