3 Things that work in the kitchen

Last week was full of good stuff!  It was my birthday week, so Jim and the kids cooked one night for me.  They grilled burgers and made my favorite Cherry Squares for dessert.

1. Best scrubby ever – available at Walmart now!

I love this scrubby for cleaning pots and pans.  The other day, when I was buzzing through the grocery store, I spotted this smiling face.  I’m so glad Walmart is carrying these now!  I used to pick them up at Bed, Bath and Beyond, but I don’t go there very often.  Walmart is much more convenient for little things like this.

If you haven’t tried one of these, pick one up soon.  They work great!

2.  Chicken Taco Soup in the slow cooker.

I know I’ve shared this before, but it’s one of my favorite easy dinners.  This time, I morphed the Spicy Chicken Soup with Taco Soup, using ingredients I had on hand.

Luckily, those ingredients included corn chips to pile on top.  So good!

I didn’t have any frozen corn (despite the fact that I’m sure I recently bought a huge bag at Costco) or canned corn, so I used cream style corn.  That works great in soup, adding a little creaminess to the finished dish.

3.  Hitting the grocery with Weekly Meal Plan list.


Our previous week included a lot of travel for several people in the family, so I hadn’t hit the store in a while other than running into Costco or picking up bread and milk.  It was time to fill the pantry again.

I printed off the September Traditional list for this week.  I alternate between the Traditional, Whole Food and Slow Cooker, picking whichever one sounds good and fits the type of week we’ve got ahead.

I love printing off a list and hitting the store without having to really think it through.  Sometimes I have an idea for a recipe I want to try to create and I add those ingredients to the list (this time, I bought things to make an Apple Butter Cake!).  Grocery shopping and planning are not things I really enjoy, so anything to make it simpler and faster works for me.

You can find out more about Weekly Meal Plans here.
