I :Heart: The Kraft Foods Site.

I've been really bad about cooking lately. I decided I needed to STOP THE INSANITY (funny her saying outlived her!).

So I went onto my trusty friend and picked out 7 meals, printed out my shopping list and went to the grocery store.

For about $100 here's my dinners for 7 days! I did have a few things already that I didn't need to buy but not much.

After I got home I cooked up 3 recipes. Two of them said they could be "made ahead" so I saved those for later and we ate the other one for dinner last night.

Last night we had Quick Fix Beef Burrito Skillet

VERDICT: I think I made this before. I forgot my kids hate beans. I thought it was great but the kids wouldn't eat it. Well Melissa ate the tortillas out of it, Jessica picked out everything that wasn't a bean and I think Trevor fed his to the dog when I wasn't looking.

Tonight we had Layered Fiesta Casserole

I made this all yesterday except didn't cook it until today.

VERDICT: we put some sour cream on top. DH loved it. It was almost too spicy for me. I think I figured out it's because the salsa I have is medium and I'm a wimp. I think Jessica liked it. The little kids are spending the night at Grandma's so I get to eat this for lunch for a few days.

Tomorrow we are having:

Barbecue Beef Filled Biscuits

I'm pretty sure we've had these before. I cooked these up yesterday too. They just need to be warmed up for dinner tomorrow.

Edited to add

VERDICT: Good but kind of just blah. Probalby the BBQ sauce I used. Needed more or something with a little more spice. (didn't use the bulls eye one that it said to use)Pin It

I go through patches where I'm bad at cooking meals too, especially if I haven't done my Sunday meal plan. It totally messes me up for the whole week.

Kraft is the BEST! I get their quarterly magazines for free and always use their recipes. YUM!!

I think I'm going to try out those BBQ beef biscuit thingies! They look super yum and the kids could even help with supper. With a family of 6 though I'm thinking two batches lol.

those look yummy!! I'll have to check out the website!

Wow you were super busy making all those meals ahead! I love the kraft site! I've learned if I've made soemthing and don't like it to toss the receipe I printed. Then I just got through the ones I've already printed to do for repeats.

MMMMM... stop with the food! (dieting here)

I love bullseye bbq sauce. I think you should have used that one for the last one. It would have been better. Bulleye does have a nice flavor.

Maybe I should get the magazine too. You know...for the articles.
