Menu Plan Monday - June 22

I am loving the new slow cooker that I picked up last weekend. So this week I'm planning some more meals using it. It is so nice to come home and have most of the work for dinner already done. There are still a few features on the new slow cooker that I haven't tried out yet. Once I try those out, I plan to post my review of the cooker.

In other news, we just might have a contract on house which would mean that we'd be moving by the end of July. So I really need to use up our stash of food. Our freezer actually has a little room in it now. I've been finding some things that I completely forgot we had, like the kielbasa you see on this week's menu. Of course our storage shelves are still pretty full. We have a lot of food to use up.

Hubby and I have been debating something and I would appreciate any comments you guys can give me on this topic. The new house will have plenty of room for us to finally have a freezer. Hubby has instead suggested that we purchase a new fridge and move the old one to the basement instead of buying a freezer. This way we would have additional freezer and fridge space. I'm not as sure about this. I told him I would think about it. So, which do you think is better, an extra refrigerator or a freezer?

Here's what I have planned for this week:


  • Monday - Steak (in the slow cooker)
  • Tuesday - Lemon Chicken
  • Wednesday - Pulled Pork Tacos (didn't get to these last week)
  • Thursday - Kielbasa and Macaroni and Cheese
  • Friday - Chicken Salad Sandwiches
  • Saturday - Spaghetti
  • Sunday - Rosemary Pork Chops


  1. Cereal
  2. Granola Bars
  3. Bananas


  1. Leftovers
  2. PB&J

I've never done steak in the crockpot you have a recipe?

For my crockpot steak I just put two steaks in the crockpot with a can of tomatoes, peppers and onions. I cooked it on low for 4 hours and that was it. Easy as can be and pretty yummy too.

Definitely a freezer. We have a combo in our basement and the freezer is filled and nothing is in the fridge.
