Menu Plan Monday + Toddler Menu Plan

This weekend, I went on a massive treasure hunt in our house in search of a few beloved items that were seemingly swallowed by our moving boxes. What? You thought we were done unpacking? Hardly. Anyways, it was a joyous but sad weekend as I discovered Nathan's tripod, William's bookshelves, our kitchen rug, AND discovered that my Crock Pot's stoneware had been cracked during the move - this was post dinner when barbecue sauce leaked through the stoneware and was burning inside. Boo. Luckily, I was able to clean out the burnt sauce and order a new stoneware (which ended up costing about as much as a new Crock Pot, but we won't go there). 

Hopefully my new replacement part will be here this week because I've got a delicious Crock Pot dinner planned for Wednesday that I cannot wait to make! 

Here's what we're having this week, along with William's lunch and dinner menu as well:

Monday - Meatball Subs, Fruit
  • William's menu: (b'fast) - Raisin Bran with Yogurt
  • (lunch) - Roasted Carrots, Peanut Butter and Jelly

Tuesday - Grilled Shrimp Salads
  • William's menu: (b'fast) - French Toast Sticks, Fruit
  • (lunch) - Turkey Meatballs, Cheese, Strawberries

  • William's menu: (b'fast) - Turkey Sausage, Scrambled Eggs, Blueberries  
  • (lunch) - Brown Rice, Veggie Sticks, Fruit

Thursday - Leftovers
  • William's menu: (b'fast) - blueberry pancake mini muffins, yogurt
  • (lunch) - Leftover Stew, "Apple Pie" (it's a new recipe I tried for him last week and he LOVED it! I'll share it soon.)

Saturday - Skinny Hawaiian Pizza Pasta, Salad
  • William's menu: (b'fast) - Toast sticks, fruit, yogurt
  • (lunch) - Tuna Sandwich, Cheese, Fruit

  1. I replaced our crockpot a few months ago. It looked like it was about to crack and it seemed we never could get it completely clean either so I just bought a new one on Amazon. The tricky part was making sure it had the snap on lid for travel.

    1. My mother in law has the snap on lid, and I love that idea! Ours does not, but I don't really travel with it that often so it's OK. I will definitely invest in the snap on lid next time though! I really love the digital feature ours has - I can set the time and walk away!

  2. Yummy! I am a chronic crock pot breaker. Mostly for me it's the lid. But, I keep them because I'm a hoarder.

    1. Haha - I had 2 Crock Pot inserts in our basement before we moved and I finally got brave enough to throw them out (they were broken). I don't know why I kept them so long? Maybe I thought I'd need a cracked stoneware down the road? ;)
