Monday: Spicy Turkey Chili & Pumpkin Bread

Friday: Boston Baked Beans

Pineapple Chicken

6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves; split
dash of pepper
Paprika (to taste)
1 - 20 oz can pineapple tidbits in juice
2 Tbs dijon mustard
2 Tbs soy sauce
1 clove minced garlic

Arrange chicken in bottom of crock pot. Sprinkle with pepper and paprika.

In small bowl, combine drained pineapple, mustard and soy sauce. Pour over chicken. Add minced garlic. Cover and cook on LOW for 7-9 hrs or on HIGH for 3-4 hrs.

Pumpkin Spice Cake


1 Spice Cake Mix (Betty Crocker or Duncan Hines)
1 can of pumpkin puree


Mix these two ingredients together - the batter is very thick. Pour into Bundt pan.

Then bake according to size/time on box. It makes a very moist cake and you can't taste the pumpkin.

Oh, my goodness- I wish I could be that organized! I have tried to plan weekly menus in the past, to no avail, as whenever I ask my husband what he might like he'll always tell me that he has no idea what he'll want to eat in 3 days time...
I poked around your fb profile site to find your blog. ;-)
Cheers, Julie Anne

Hi Julie Anne!
Welcome! I don't even ask my husband anymore. Basically, he tells me if he doesn't like something and I just remove it from the collection of recipes. It really does save time and long as you stick to it! I rarely make the meals in the order listed - I'll pull from my weekly list for what usually feels right for the day.
