Getting Ready for Meatless Monday

| September 4, 2011 | 0 Comments

It’s Sunday afternoon… what’s for dinner tomorrow?  This week’s menu planning calls for Mac & Cheese in the crock pot.  All of the shopping is done and this meatless meal is ready for Monday!  To get a little ahead of the game I am going to cook the pasta tonight and put it in a bag in the fridge until I throw all the ingredients in the crock pot on the way out the door in the morning.

crock pot ingredientsI know it’s Labor day but we don’t have the day off tomorrow in my house, so we will be happy to have the meal ready to go when we finally get home at the end of the day.  In case you are lucky enough to be going to a picnic, this is also a great dish to bring along to share.

We will be serving up this dish with a side of fresh green beans.  Our meals almost always start with a little salad of some sort too.  This meatless Monday meal is a favorite in our house with my kids.  Other times I make this dish I would pick up some ham steaks and either grill them up or throw in the oven with some orange juice and a sprinkle of brown sugar.  Kids can’t get enough of it, this meal rarely has left overs for the lunchbox. Want to see the Menu Plan for the week ?
