menu plan monday

whew.  we survived.  there were moments last week were I didn't think we would.  kidding of course but man the boys and I both got hit hard with the same virus.  just affected us all differently.  The boys ended up with double ear infections which then turned into pink eye and I just had a terrible cold bug.  but we are all finally on the mend.  

our menu this week includes lots of good ole "go to's."  tomorrow i'm starting a 3 day detox so i'll have my own meals to eat through wednesday, but I spose i'll still cook for my boys :)  

Last Friday I was able to make an extra beef stroganoff casserole and freeze it.  I've never frozen one of those before so I'm interested how it'll turn out.  Also got a loaf of banana bread (of the 3 loaves I made today) in the freezer.  I love having a stocked freezer!  it's a tad of an obsession lately.  

I've been scouring pinterest of course but do any of you have any good freezer meals?  i'd love to hear em!

Beef Stew in the Crockpot

recipe from Lynda

2 garlic cloves minced
1 Tb. worchestershire
1 bay leaf
1 tsp dried oregano
1 Tb salt
1 tsp. pepper
3-4 cups water
7 potatoes, peeled and quartered 
1 lb. carrots, cut into 1 inch pieces
frozen peas (add the last 15 minutes before serving)

Throw all of it (except peas) into the crockpot cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours
Friday:

Just throw 4-5 chicken breasts in the crockpot.
Dump half a jar of buffalo sauce and a packet of ranch

serve on buns.  Super easy and yummy!

For our small group I think I'll make
