Menu Plan Monday : Week 10/29/12

Do you plan your meals for the week?
If you aren't, you will save so much time and money at the grocery store buying things that aren't needed. This week my hubby asked why the grocery list was so small, probably like you, our pantry is overflowing with food items that never get used. But also, I don't like to spend a lot of time in the kitchen making complicated meals but I still want the food to taste delicious.
So with this in mind, here's my weekly menu:
Monday: Hot Turkey Sandwiches

Wednesday: FREE
Thursday: Taco Soup - recipe below
Friday: Out of Town
Saturday: Crockpot Italian Chicken

Taco Soup
This is another one of our family favorite soups and is very filling and fast to make!

1 pound hamburger
1 packet taco seasoning
1 packet ranch dressing mix
1 can corn (undrained)
1 can black beans
1 can pinto beans
1 can hominy (white)
1 can diced tomatoes

Brown meat and drain.
In crockpot or large kettle, add meat and sprinkle seasoning packets on top.
Add entire contents of the canned ingredients - do not drain the juice!
Stir until mixed and and cook on low for 2 -4 hours in crockpot or on stovetop until hot.

Feel free to add shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream.
