Menu Monday (wk of March 3rd)

I've been finding myself in a pickle. I've been trying to deflate my grocery bill, cut calories, add protein and try to simplify some recipes a bit because...well, four kids & a kickass fitness session can suck the life out of a person some days! There is nothing worse than being dog-tired and not having the energy to stand for a couple of hours over a hot stove, cooking....so now a couple of days this week (and last) it's been "hello, slow cooker recipes!" LOL

For my new readers, if any of you are parents, I want to point out that my 2 oldest kids also follow this menu completely. My youngest 2 follow the Breakfasts and Dinners & most of the Lunches, but sometimes they just want a peanut butter sandwich. They are toddlers, after all. ;-)
