Menu Plan

If you have a busy evening schedule put your crock pot to work! Even though I’ve been doing it for years I’m still amazed at how easy it is to make dinner in the crock pot. Last week I think my crock pot ran all day and night cooking soups, pumpkin, sweet potatoes and meals. It really made dinners easy!

If you haven’t tried spaghetti squash yet you should! It is very healthy and if you serve it with sauce your kids will probably like it. They are really cheap right now and last year I published a tutorial for those of you who haven’t made one before.

  1. Woo Hoo for your French Dips. You know how much my family loves those. Did I mention that last time we had them-about two weeks ago-that my twin boys requested that for their birthday meal…which isn’t until February! But, they’re already looking forward to it! We’re having Cinnamon Oat Pancakes for dinner one night this week. Do you grind your oats before putting them in the pancakes?

    • TheHappyHousewife says:

      I do because my kids cannot stand the taste of oatmeal in pancakes, but don’t seem to mind with it blended in.

  2. I love spaghetti squash. The rest of the family however does not feel the same way 🙁
