Weekly Menu 10/23/17 & more band!!

Hello friends! We have made it to Monday again. That means another week of meals!  Over the weekend we had the last band competition of the season, which was very bittersweet since it was my daughter’s LAST marching band performance EVER!! I was also super excited to get my blog post about my coffee bar done!  

 

Monday:

Philly Cheese steak- I use Aaron’s Quick Steak. It comes frozen and you cook it from frozen. So it’s great for a quick weeknight meal. I sauté onions, mushrooms, orange bell pepper & garlic to go with it. & it is delish! This can be served on a hoagie bun, rice or cauliflower rice.

Tuesday:

Tacos with guacamole and homemade salsa

Homemade Salsa~

So I am allergic to jalapeños so that means I can’t have any store bought  salsa- I know, sad right??  So I have learned to make my own! It’s super yummy & I am going to share it with you tomorrow!

Wednesday:

Chili & Cinnamon apple muffins

Because we have a lot of busy nights this week I will pre cook the hamburger and then throw everything in the Crockpot so we can just grab it and go!

The basic recipe I follow is:

  • 2-3 lbs of meat this time I wanted to make extra so I used 2 lbs ground beef and 1 lb of ground pork (you can also use bison, bacon, or steak)
  • 1/2 yellow onion & clove of garlic (diced)
  • 2 cans of tomato sauce
  • 1 can of tomatoes
  • 2 cans of beans (I used chili & black beans)
  • spices- a mixture of chili powder, garlic powder, paprika, salt & pepper.

Heat pan with olive oil & sauté diced onion and garlic

Add ground beef and pork until cooked through

Add beans, sauce, tomatoes, & spices

If you can put all in a crockpot and let it all cook together for several hours

Thursday:

Cool Ranch Tacos (I make a few edits to her recipe)

These are super, super easy & here is what you need~

Crockpot

Chicken Thighs

3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil

2 Tablespoons of Red Wine Vinegar

1 Taco seasoning packet (or click here for a homemade version)

1 Ranch seasoning packet (or use a homemade version-1T dried parsley, 1tsp garlic powder, 1tsp onion powder, 1tsp dried onion flakes, 3/4tsp dill, 1/2tsp pepper, and 1/2 tsp salt)
