Better yet, these recipes make alot, so I should freeze the leftovers and have them as backups later...
Foods ideas: Did it work?
Fajitas: Have to cook in the morning, but he liked it!
Split pea soup: great for CP, doesn't appear to be his favorite
hamburger/pasta: great for CP, loves this one! found the recipe:
Chili: great for CP (on high overnight). he its it pretty well.
Cream of potato/ham: good soup, not good for crock pot and not good for freezing... but he likes it. http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,1648,133168-246196,00.html
chicken/rice (Costco frozen entree): fast to prepare, connor likes it OK.
Pork Chops: (layer in crock pot, chops, stove top stuffing, apple pie filling). try it!
Chicken/Dumplings: Connor loves pot pies, so I thought I'd try this as an alternative. He likes it, but not as much as the pot pie... (1 can cream of chicken soup, 2 cans chicken broth, equivalent of 2 cans of veggies, chicken chunks -- can be leftovers from another meal, 1 can biscuits, cut into 1/4's. simmer until biscuits are cooked).
Pork Chops 2, with potatoes and carrots: Good for CP, not sure if it freezes. Connor likes it OK.
spaghetti: cook the night before? or CP?
Chicken cacciatori: need a recipe
Beef Barley soup: worked well in crock pot (barley was a little mushy). Connor ate pretty well. Will try to freeze (recipe: http://www.recipe-recipes.net/soups/beef-barley-soup-mix.htm)
