Chocolate Zucchini Bread, Taco Meat, Salsa Chicken, Supreme Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes

It's preppin time!
Saturday night I prepped all my meals for the week freezer style.  Sunday morning I started looking around and decided to get prepping other things :)
From top- clockwise

Shredded Zucchini (For Zucchini Bread)
Cooked Ground Turkey (Taco Meat)
Salsa Chicken (Previously Crocked)
Supreme Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes
Chocolate Zucchini Bread

 In the order listed, add ingredients to a mixer.

There are literally umpteen million recipes in which call for seasoned taco meat.  Cook a lot ahead of time, freeze, and then portion out for your recipe.  If you are using Ground Turkey, I have noticed you need to use around 1/3-1/2 cup seasoning for each pound of meat. 
2 cups cooked = 1 lb  Raw Hamburger or Ground Turkey
Shredded Salsa Chicken
This is a Crock pot 'dump and go' recipe.  You really aught not be concerned about amounts because in the end, you have one big pot of shredded chicken ooey gooey deliciousness.
My version: (Throw all in the Crock)
  • 4 chicken breasts or 10 tenderloins
  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can corn (drained)
  • 1 can black beans (drained) -I didn't have these this time :(
  • 1/4 cup taco seasoning
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 8 oz block cream cheese (wait for end)
Cook on low for 6-8 hours (I cook everything on 'keep warm' for longer periods of time, but you know your own crock pot). 
When ready to serve, stir in the cream cheese and shred the chicken.

Serve on tortillas and dress with sour cream, hot sauce or whatever you like.

Supreme Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes

In a mixer:
  • 4 cups bisquick or homemade pancake mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 over ripe bananas
  • 2 cups vanilla coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 C sugar
Make pancakes.  When done, spread a thin layer of peanut butter over pancake, sandwich together and eat.  There is just something about peanut butter and banana. Freeze the leftovers...when ready to eat a frozen one, zap for 20-30 seconds and then pop in the toaster.

Super easy & aaahmazing.
