Meal Plan Monday

It's been a hectic few weeks (8 to be exact!) since I've made it back to my blog to update. Baby O is doing great and is 9 weeks old now.

We made our big relocation but are still in limbo while we wait to get the perfect house. That means all my cooking is happening with limited kitchen space and equipment. Without my normal pantry space and stockpile, I have to be a bit inventive and somewhat simplistic too. I've been pretty good about planning our meals each week and figured I could share them here and look back when I need more ideas in upcoming weeks. So here goes... our week in meals!!

   Mexican Soup 

Okay so there are only three days planned. This week Tuesday we have plans so it will be leftover night (thank you Easter meal!!). Also, I don't normal plan for Friday and Saturday meals as we often eat out and Sunday Tim and I usually figure out together. 

Here are a few past weeks too!

   Mexican Casserole (see recipe below)
   Turkey Shepherds Pie (see recipe below)

Mexican Casserole
  I have a inch of variation so this I cook so here is the one I cooked this week. 

2 chicken breasts cooked all day on low in crockpot
1 packet taco seasoning
1 can corn
1 can black beans
1 packet of cream cheese

After chicken is cooked, shred and put back in crackpot on low. Add in cream cheese, corn, and black beans and stir until cheese is melted. Serve over white rice. 

Turkey Shepherd's Pie
  This is great with group beef also. 

1lb turkey
worchestershire sauce
frozen mixed vegetables
cheddar cheese

Brown turkey and drain. Sauté onions. Season with Worcestershire sauce (1tbsp minimum I like more) and garlic. Add in frozen mixed vegetables and cook until defrosted. Boil potatoes and mash. Season with butter and salt. In a large casserole dish layer meat/veggie mix then potatoes on top. Bake at 350 degrees until warmed throughout and then top with cheddar cheese until bubbly.
