Meal Plan Monday & Vegetable Beef Soup

Dear Creatives, Meal Plan Monday here today! Here are some recipe results & meals from left overs to share with you. I tried the slow cooker beef dip sandwiches from the previous Meal Plan Monday which only calls for your beef roast, beef broth & the french roll buns or hoagies for the sandwiches. It is a simple crock pot meal just put it in & cook it all day until tender & shreds apart. The only thing is even with adding 1/2 an onion & salt & pepper it just didn’t have enough flavor for our tastes, but it was still good. We just added a little horse radish or  brown mustard to the sandwich to give it that kick we like. If you are after a mildly flavored meal that is easy this recipe delivers just that!


I used some of the left over meat to make beef vegetable soup the next day. It was super easy & it’s one of those kitchen sink, all in one pot kind of meals. What ever veggies you have on hand can go right in. Here is how & a simple recipe for beef vegetable soup. If you’ve read the blog for awhile you know Sammie loves soups so I am always up for cooking or trying new soup recipes.

I tried Pioneer Woman’s Chicken Alfredo from the previous recipes line up. You might enjoy that, sorry I don’t have pictures. Be sure you know how to make sauces a few people mention not being able to get it to thicken. I looked around & these videos explains how & why which may help you if you’ve never made white sauce!

Simple White Pasta Sauce

Chicken Alfredo

I am reserving making the hummus dip for Super Bowl Sunday & did cook fish, but didn’t make the fish tacos. I baked the fish in the oven that day. Which is so easy to do if you never have. Just bread your fish, a little olive oil or non stick spray on a foil lined cookie sheet & bake, half way through just flip over to finish baking. About 20-30 min or until flaky. (depends on thickness of your fish) Yummy! ( I used Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs) The recipes I picked for this week  may possibly be used for game day meals!

Let me know if you try any of the recipes I have shared & feel free to link  up your recipe, meal plan posts each week. Email me if you have a recipe you’d like me to try & add to an meal plan list! Here are a few recipes I am hoping to try this week & share the results soon.
