The Crockpot Potato Chowder has become a major staple at this house since I found the recipe a few months ago. It is absolutely wonderful and so easy to make!

We also LOVE the Pizza Pockets. I make a bunch at a time and stick them in the freezer so we always have them on hand for a quick meal. We don't put much sauce inside so we heat some up as a dip. Less messy for the baby (no dip for her!).

My meatloaf and swedish meatballs are a hit here too. I cheat though because both are seasoning packets! LoL We use ground turkey and the swedish meatballs go over mashed potatoes instead of noodles. Yum!

I also tried my hand at making guacamole for the first time the other day and it turned out GREAT! All I did was mash up 1 avocado, 1/4 cup diced onion, 3/4 diced jalepeno, salt, minced garlic (a lot for us garlic fanatics), and a squirt of bottled lime juice. It was so yummy with chips. I'm making it again Tuesday with our tacos!

Hope you enjoy some of these recipes! Have a great week!
