Make My Menu Monday 2/12/18

Hola Amigos! I am literally typing this blog post mid flight! I am on my way home from an amazing trip in Mexico, that I hope to tell you about really soon. I can’t quite figure out if it will fit  into a  Wellness Wednesday post or Thankful Thursday post. Sometimes we can’t put our experiences into a category, can we?  I can tell you this- it was amazing and I enjoyed EVERY minute of it to the fullest. I can’t wait to share it with you!!! But it is Monday, so I need to get to the task at hand, my menu for the week!

 

Monday:

Leftovers

Tuesday:

Shredded Beef Taco Tuesday! Last week I made a large roast that I used only about half of, then I shredded the rest. Then I will use it for shredded beef tacos. I just add my Taco Seasoning mix (below) to the shredded beef.

Breakfast for dinner + a special Valentines day tradition

Scrambled Eggs & then choose your own toppings~

  • Tomatoes
  • Spinach
  • Feta cheese
  • Bacon
  • Sausage

The Valentine’s Day Tradition in my house is chocolate fondue with bananas. strawberries and brownies to dip in!

Thursday:

Chicken Thighs served with broccoli & rice

Friday:

Pork Shoulder Roast

Have you heard of the Pioneer Woman? I love her show on Food Network. She doesn’t typically make healthy meals, but I have learned to adapt them a little, by making some simple changes. I personally make this into a crockpot meal!

The edits I make are:

When making the marinade/sauce I go step by step, per the recipe except I sub out the sugar- instead of brown sugar, I use coconut sugar
To make it into a crockpot meal, after making the sauce I coat the entire pork roast in the crockpot, flipping it around in it so it coats all sides. Then I put it on low and cook it all day long, over 12 hours
It makes the best shredded pork EVER! You can put it on tortillas, make it into a bowl with rice,or cauliflower rice, or just eat it by itself really- it’s that good.

Saturday:

Cheesy Potato Soup served with Hot Ham & Cheese Sandwiches
