Welcome to March!  I am excited for some warmer weather heading our way this week so it’s back to the grill.  In the meantime, there are lots of crock pot meals on deck.
Sunday~ New beef stew recipe made in the Pressure Cooker.  It was from the Boston Globe Magazine this weekend, Asian-style beef stew.  I followed the star anise and ginger recipe, however I couldn’t find star anise at my local grocery store.  Even without the star anise, the stew had a wonderful flavor to it that was a nice departure from beef/carrots/celery/onion mix.  In the pressure cooker, I just adjusted the cooking time to 10 minutes at high pressure. Use quick release, then add the carrots, and I also added potatoes and cooked on high pressure for another 7 minutes.  Use natural pressure release and dinner is done.  It was a little thinner than your typical beef stew, but you can thicken it up with a little butter and flour, beurre blanc
Monday~ Coconut and Garlic Chicken in the Crock Pot.  This is from Aimee at Simple Bites and it’s amazing. We have made it before and it got five stars all around.  The kids like the little baby corn in the recipe.

Tuesday~ Crock Pot Lasagna.  My friend Caren tested this out after I didn’t get to make it from another menu plan.  It came out great and she recommends adding in fresh basil.

Wednesday~ C.O.R.N. = Clean out refrigerator night.  With all these big meals I want to make sure we eat the leftovers.  Plus we are working on Project Night Night in the afternoon and don’t want to worry about making dinner when we are done. 
Thursday~ Grilled Chicken and Asparagus.  Hopefully we really do get 60 degree weather.  
Friday ~ Veggie Pizza.
Saturday ~ Date night, dinner out!

  1. Totally intrigued by the coconut and ginger chicken. It looks delicious!

  2. I'm excited for grilling weather! I will be using our crockpot a couple times this week making a mongolian beef and a ranch chicken both from pintrest. Other than that might try and do some fish! I will have to try the coconut ginger chicken sometime soon!

  3. We love Thai in Weeksworld, so I'm definitely going to try out that Coconut Chicken in the slow cooker! Just looking at the picture is making my mouth water!
