Weekly meals

Jeff picked all of our meals for this week which was such a blessing! Sunday afternoon rolls around and I have been dreading planning meals and going to the grocery store. Thankfully I only had to run to the store yesterday which requires hardly any brain power :)
A quick rant note on crock pot meals: I made crock pot chicken tikki masala last week (or 2 weeks ago?) and while it is delicious it should never, ever be cooked in the crock pot. The whole point of crock pot cooking is to save time and energy by just throwing ingredients into the pot and pressing start, right? This recipe has you marinating the chicken, browning it in batches, AND making a sauce before finally putting all of the components into the crock pot. Really? What's the point? I could have spent the same amount of time cooking later in the day and would have been able to eat right away if I hadn't used the crock pot. If you want a good recipe that requires absolutely no work at all try this delicious mediterranean chicken. My only tip would be to leave the prunes out until the last 30 minutes of cooking or they get really squishy.
And now what you've all been waiting for...a list of our meals this week!

Whats on your menu this week?
