    Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Dip

    On Christmas Eve, I wanted to throw some kind of warm dip together. I have never made buffalo chicken dip but figured I would give it a try and surprisingly, it actually turned out amazing so I figured I would share with you all!

    Meal Plan Monday! | Dec 3 – Dec 16

    Meal Plan Monday!

    I am back with round 2 of meal plan Monday! If you need even more inspiration on meal ideas, check out my last Meal Plan Monday here!

    The Ingredients

    Before I plan out my meals and go grocery shopping, I like to first make a list of ingredients I already have on hand that would make a meal. This is a huge tip and will save you money! When I checked the cupboards and refrigerator, I had the following:

    • pork chops
    • small steak rounds
    • hamburger meat
    • chicken legs
    • white & brown rice

    From here, I will make a list of meals that have these ingredients in them and fill in the days of the week.

    So here is what it is looking like for the next two weeks in our household!
    *Disclaimer* Once again, we have plans to be out of town for a few of the days because of it being the holidays. Once the holidays are over, we will not be traveling so much and I will have two full weeks of meals planned. I hope you understand!

    Meal Plan Monday! | Nov 19 – Dec 2

    Welcome to Meal Plan Monday!

    Every other Monday I plan out our dinners for the next two weeks. I have some staples that I make often, but I also spend a lot of time on Pinterest looking at other people’s meal plans and searching for recipes. I figured since I am already investing the time, why not help someone else by sharing my own meal plans. Be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss out on future meal plan Monday posts!

    The Process

    Before I plan out my meals and go grocery shopping, I like to first make a list of ingredients I already have on hand that would make a meal. This is a huge tip and will save you money! When I checked the cupboards and refrigerator, I had the following:

    • a package of gnocchi
    • white & brown rice
    • linguine pasta noodles
    • several cans of tuna fish
    • frozen turkey burgers
    • brats

    From here, I will make a list of meals that have these ingredients in them and fill in the days of the week. If I ever get stumped on what to make for a day or two, I will think of a theme for that specific day of the week. As you know, we do Soup Sundays in this house! (Be sure to checkout my latest Soup Sunday Recipe where I made Crockpot Baked Potato Soup).

    A sample of themes for the week might be:
    • Monday- Meatless Monday
    • Tuesday- Taco Tuesday
    • Wednesday- Pasta night
    • Thursday- Crockpot Meal
    • Friday- Pizza night (order in or make homemade)
    • Saturday- Seafood Saturday
    • Sunday- Soup Sunday

    So I planned out the next two weeks, but we will be out of town for a few days, as it is Thanksgiving week this week! We will be spending this Thanksgiving with Shae’s family near Portland, Oregon and we are so excited. Here is what I came up with for the next two weeks:

    Crockpot Baked Potato Soup

    This fall, I started a Soup Sunday tradition at our house. So I have been making soups in the crockpot every Sunday that we are home for quite awhile now. Yesterday I am threw together a Baked Potato Soup and loaded it with our favorite toppings. I love Sundays because I usually throw all my ingredients in the crockpot right before lunch and we can smell it cooking the rest of the day day while we are snacking and watching football!

    Five on Friday!

    Happy Friday, everyone! I wanted to join in on doing a Five on Friday post every week. This means every Friday you post five things; whether it be your favorites, a recipe, events that happened during the week, etc. So join me on Friday’s and let’s get started!

    ONE: Shae has been gone the last few weeks for training and on Monday he finally came home! These last couple of months have been really hard because he has been gone so much. Thankfully, Everlee and I get to go visit family while he is gone, so that makes it a little less hard. So to celebrate him coming home, we (I) decided to ditch cooking dinner and we went to MOD Pizza instead. Also, you should have seen how happy Everlee was to have her daddy home. As she gets older, her reactions are so amazing to watch and something I will cherish forever. Continue reading
