Menu Plan: Crock Pot Week

Have you entered my Vita-Mix giveaway yet? It ends tomorrow!

Last week I planned to eat from the pantry, but the bug that seems to have spread from here to West Virginia struck our family and I spent most of my week at the doctor’s office, on the phone with the doctor, or at the pharmacy. As a result we ended up eating a lot of sandwiches, frozen pizza and take out.

Many of the recipes on the menu are a repeat from last week, because I was nursing sick kids back to health. I’m hoping this week will be better, but I still have a few sick ones so who knows!

My success meal of the week: Cauliflower Soup

I intended on making my Healthy Potato Soup but the potatoes were bad. I decided to omit the potatoes, add sour cream and cream to original recipe and make cauliflower soup. As someone who does not like cauliflower I was unsure how this soup would turn out, but it was delicious! Not only that, it took less than 30 minutes to prepare, start to finish. I will definitely write down the exact recipe and add it to the site soon.
