Week of October 15-19

Short menu this week, due to our crazy schedule, but I thought I would share what's on our menu this week.


Night 1 - Crock-Pot sweet and sour chicken
Night 2 - Spicy tomato, arugula, turkey bacon grilled cheese serve with a light Light Tomato Basil Soup


Night 1 - Click here for the Crock Pot sweet and sour chicken.

This recipe looks easy and great.  I love Chinese food, but I hate the calories that go with it.  This recipe does call for some perpetration, but it as the creator of this menu stated, most are staple items in your pantry and fridge.

Night 2- Spicy tomato, arugula, turkey bacon grilled cheese serve with a light Light Tomato Basil Soup - click here for the soup recipe.  

For the grilled cheese, it is pretty basic.  Between two slices of good whole wheat bread, stack pepper jack cheese, tomato slices, cooked turkey bacon and little bit of arugula. Grill on a panini maker or on the stove will be posted soon :)
