Meal Planning Monday, January 13th

Happy Monday friends!  I hope that you have had a wonderful weekend!  I was determined to have 5 Blue Dot days this past week.  I had a loss of 2.8 pounds this week. Unfortunately, while I did make some progress with using some things up, I didn't stop to think about how many servings those recipes would make.  We wound up having leftovers because there was just too much food.

I planned the following:

Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana Recipe - Crockpot Copycat
Slow Cooker Sausage and Potato Casserole
Slow Cooker Pesto Ranch Chicken
Easy Slow Cooker Taco Pasta
Crispy Baked Cod with Cheesy Potatoes & Roasted Broccoli
Stromboli

We had:

Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana Recipe - Crockpot Copycat
Slow Cooker Sausage and Potato Casserole
Easy Slow Cooker Taco Pasta
Stromboli

Here's what I can tell you about the new recipes I tried last week.  
  • The Zuppa Toscana soup was a winner!  👍👍
  • Easy Slow Cooker Taco Pasta was also a winner!  👍👍
  • Slow Cooker Sausage and Potato Casserole with Green Beans was so good!  👍👍
Honestly, the Slow Cooker Sausage and Potato Casserole with Green Beans was slightly addictive.  If I hadn't been so tired, I can totally see how I'd have to watch myself to make sure I didn't binge. 

I am going to move two of these to next week and add to it:
Crispy Baked Cod with Cheesy Potatoes & Roasted Broccoli
Slow Cooker Pesto Ranch Chicken
Vegetarian Lentil Tortilla Soup 
Nachos/Tacos
Vegetarian Pasta e Fagioli Soup
Stromboli

Still a couple of "new" recipes and some tried and true recipes.  Hopefully we won't wind up with a crazy amount of leftovers!  

I really want to make that Zuppa Toscana soup again.  It was so good for dinner!
