Meals for Jan 19-31

Last weeks crockpot week was such a success. We actually ate dinner at a decent hour every day. Plus, dinner time wasn't the crazy hectic time it usually is. The only downside is sometimes the dishwasher wasn't in sync with when the crockpot needed to be cleaned so it was sometimes a little bit of a pain to clean. Anyway, I decided I need to make use of my crockpot more often. Usually I just use it for roast or chili, but no more! That said, this is what we are eating this week.

M- Roasted Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese Croutons -- I saw this in the Family Fun magazine last night and can not stop thinking about it. I'm not sure the kids will eat it. If not, they get grilled cheese and fruit and a Vegetable. It calls for whipping cream but I think I might try evaporated milk either instead or 1/2 & 1/2 it.
T - Spaghetti and my friend Cynthia's Rosemary Peasant Bread. It isn't GF but I was thinking I could make GF breadsticks for my daughter.
W - "Gunge" (Recipe below)
Th - Salmon
F - Chili in the Crockpot
S - Black bean Salsa with Tortilla Chips

Gunge
This is so easy there really isn't a recipe but the kids LOVE it

Rice (as much as your family will eat
Frozen Peas or mixed veggies (again as much as your family would eat)
1 lb chicken or hamburger (or less, depends on how much you want)

Cook Rice, Cook Peas, Brown meat then mix together in a bowl. Serve with soy sauce.

You don't really make your kids eat that do you...I have not had to eat it since I left home 12 years ago. Now, I never have to again because of our rice and peas allergies!

Absolutely! My kids can't get enough of it. It is probably one of the most liked things I make.
