Winter drags on and even though we have had more warm than cold days here in the deep south, we have decided to make Menu Plan #44 our Soup Week!
It’s going to be an easy week in the kitchen for me! Some of these soup recipes are made in the slow cooker and some on the stovetop. Either way, soup is one of those one pot meals we all love to make.
Hoppin John is big Budget Stretcher with only 3 ingredients! I enjoy chopped onions on top of my Hoppin John but everyone doesn’t so those are served on the side. I like to cook this meal using dried black eye peas for that home cooked taste.
With only 7 ingredients and the Crockpot involved, this is always a good meal at our house. We love the flavor combinations in our Taco Soup.
It’s a Budget Stretcher because it only uses 7 ingredients and will yield two meals for us.
Leftover Crockpot Taco Soup
Only 6 ingredients! I’m telling you, I love easy meals and this one is a winter favorite at our house.

Leftover Homemade Vegetable Soup
Soup calls for some crackers or cornbread so we are having both this week. We enjoy tortilla chips with our Taco soup. I’ll be making some Waffle Iron Cornbread also.
Did you notice I’m only actually cooking three days! You have got to love leftovers, not just for the budget but for the ease of time in the kitchen too.
Dessert this week!
Since our menu is super easy this week, I’m going to make a dessert! My daughter has requested a Caramel Cake.
