Menu Plan Monday- double dippin!

School started today and that makes me want to drag out my crock pot. Who cares if its 96 degrees and my kids are wearing tank tops. My fall decorations are rolling out Sept 1 and my crock pot is getting plugged in. ( I will just crank up the air, right?!?) To show that I am totally not all impractical, I will be double dipping meats in order to save time and money. Happy Eating y'all!

Monday: Beef Roast, garlic mashed potatoes, green beans, crescent rolls

Tuesday: Grilled chicken breasts, roasted carrots, broccoli, french rolls

Wednesday: Easy beef enchiladas (recipe below), re fried beans

Thursday: Leftover night...If you can find it, you can eat it but mama has the night off !!

Sunday: EASY Crock pot pork (Recipe tomorrow), peas, scalloped potatoes
