Menu Plan Monday

This is a sad, sad day in my kitchen . Over the week-end my twins broke the lid to my large oval crock-pot. . . I KNOW! Since they are only 4 I can't beat them and since they already live here I can't make them indentured servants. Sigh, one more thing to try and replace/take care of. I use that crock pot at least 2 - 3 times a week, so need a speedy solution to this dilemma. For this week at least, I am going to try and use foil to cover it while it cooks.
Had a resurgence of the "crud" over the week-end as well. Feel like I will never get it completely out of my chest. But did managed to get the kids to the Christmas Parade. I wanted to curl up in bed, but was out voted. So I did the next best thing and took them over to my friends house, she lives right on main street. So her dd and my kids stood at the curb while I stayed inside with friend and watched parade through picture window with big cup of coffee - grin. The next day I staggered over to Grandma S and Grandpa D house, solo (yeah) for a reunion party of radio employees. Their house was so warm, quiet and cozy I almost passed out on there sofa after being plied with great food and alot of warm cranberry punch. So glad they are home for Christmas this year and not going off to Vegas. One year they took my older kids with them, kind of lonley here without them. Anyway, will seem more Christmasy with the grand - p's here.
So today I am trying once again to reclaim my homestead and my health and get back in the swing of things, starting with cooking. Here is a look at what we are having for dinner this week:
Monday: Mongolian beef on rice (didn't get to it last week)
Tuesday: Broccoli, Potato and cheese soup w/ cornbread
Wednesday: Church/ mom's night off
Thursday: Crock pot Pork chops w/curry stuffing and salad
Friday: Hamburgers w/ homemade fries and veggie sticks
Saturday: Homemade pizza w/ tossed salad
Sunday: 15 bean soup w/ garlic bread (didn't get to last week)

Hubby keeps swapping out my corningware casserole lid with my Crockpot lid. Do you have a corningware casserole lid that might fit? Just a thought.

I got a crockpot with a timer from Wally World for under $20 for the RV. I think it was a 5qt one (off brand)... But hey, it works!
