Our church's annual trunk or treat was this evening, and they even provided pizza! Score!
Monday: Pesto Ranch Crockpot Chicken Tacos
Hooray for Halloween!! Earlier in the day, I just threw some frozen chicken breasts in the crock pot with some jarred pesto, some ranch seasoning, and a little chicken broth. Cook it on low for 6 hours or so (longer if you have full crockpot), then shred and eat! It's a yummy chicken for tacos, nachos, and even on salads. It also makes great leftovers! I served ours on tortillas and also roasted Brussels sprouts and potatoes as sides. It was a quick, easy meal that gave us all the energy we needed for some epic Trick-or-Treat time with the kids. :-)
Chad was in California for work, so the kids and I had leftovers. I love leftovers.
Wednesday: Slow Cooker Asian Style Country Ribs with Brown Rice
Slow Cooker Asian Style Country Ribs
This is a delicious recipe that I made once a million years ago, loved it, and then forgot to ever make it again. It's so simple, yet it packs so much flavor. Just like the first time I made it, I actually didn't marinate it overnight...I just threw everything in my crockpot and cooked it on low for 8-9 hours. About an hour before dinner time, I placed fresh broccoli and snow peas in the crockpot and spooned a little of the juice over the top before placing the lid back on. I made some brown rice on the stove, and dinner was ready!
Thursday: Dinner at Studio Movie Grill
The kids have been so excited to see the new movie "Trolls," so we made a fun evening out of it!
Friday: Kids Staying with Nonnie
Chad and I both had separate retreats, so the kids stayed at my mom's house.
Saturday: Cheeseburgers with Spinach Salad and Fresh Fruit
Chad is always willing to grill for us!
