Menu Planning Help Needed!

If you are here to see what we are having for dinner this week, you are not going to see it. Nope. I am not posting it this week...but please don't leave! I need your help.

I've been working on planning my menu for the entire month! Whew, I know! I must be crazy!

Anyhow. I sat down and went through all my recipes and meals that I make for dinner. I made an excel document and put them all into columns by main ingredient (poultry, pork, beef, seafood, etc.) type and meal (meat with sides, casserole, slow cooker, pasta, etc.) type.

What I found out is that I am short on slow cooker recipes, fish/seafood recipes and meatless recipes.

Here is where YOU come in! I need your "tried and true" recipes for the slow cooker, fish/seafood recipes or meatless meal recipes.

You can either add them in the comment section or click on "view my complete profile" and follow the link to email them directly to me. Either way you choose to do it, please make sure you include your email address. Sometimes when I receive comments, they come in anonymous or have no email address with them. If I can't get a hold of you then you can't win the prize!

What prize?
Yes! There is a prize! Well actually, it's a THANK YOU for helping me out! I will put all the entries in a bowl and have my wonderful 8 year old daughter, Allison, pick a winner.

What will the winner receive?
Well! I am putting together a box that includes my most favorite things...and NO, you will not be receiving my daughter...unless she's not so wonderful on the day I'm packing up the box! What's in the box? Well it's a surprise...seriously, I'm not done with what's going in there but I can promise you...it's good. It's really good. So good in fact, I want to enter my own give-a-way! It's filled with things that I love and can't live without.

What do you have to do to be entered in my give-a-way?
1. Send me either a recipe or a link for a slow cooker recipe OR a fish/seafood recipe OR a meatless meal recipe that is "tried and true." You must have tried it and like it...let's be honest here. You will get 1 entry for each recipe or link.
2. Please do not link me to a site that features all slow cooker or fish/seafood or meatless meal recipes where I have to search the recipes. I can and have been doing that myself and that's not what I'm looking for...I want "tried and trues."
3. All recipes or links must be received by 8:00 pm EST on Friday, March 5th. The winner will be drawn that evening and posted on the following Saturday morning.
4. Don't forget to make sure I have your email so I can contact you if you win!

Thanks for helping!
I can't wait to see what you send to me!

Have Fun!

Hi Cindi,

I definitely hope you LOVE this recipe. One thing I wanted to let you know is in all of the reviews on it, it says DEFINITELY use the golden mushroom soup so I hope yours turns out FABULOUS still without using it. I had never used that type of mushroom soup before and it is much darker and more flavorful than the regular cream of mushroom soup. Anyway I came back by to link this recipe because as I said WE LOVE it.☺

Hi there! I just saw you over on Org Junkie's MPM! One thing I like to do is make a soup or stew on the weekend, then stick it in the crockpot on low to just reheat - we usually do that once a week. I've got a few meatless dishes I've posted about on my own blog -

a delicious crockpot lentils & rice dish - http://tinyurl.com/yk3ctee

and I recently made a lentil loaf, which was surprisingly tasty (really!) - http://tinyurl.com/yj6clnb

and leek & potato soup is always a winner!- http://tinyurl.com/yg4ranc

Good luck with your search!
