Weekly Menu 11/27/17

Hi friends & Happy Monday! It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is over and the countdown to Christmas is less than a month! I hope you had a very Happy Thanksgiving.  My kids and I were able to spend it with some extended family out of town and it was great to be able to see them.  With the holiday season upon us menu planning is so important. It is that time of year that if you don’t make a plan, a drive through is probably in your near future 🙂 Here is our weekly menu for 11/27/17

Monday:
Leftovers

Tuesday:
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)

*Throw everything in the crockpot, Cook on low all day, at least 8 hours

Holy Cow- it doesn’t get much easier than that!!

Wednesday:
Breakfast for Dinner

Thursday:

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, just because it works great for us on Mondays to do 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.

Friday:

Choir event and eating out

Saturday:

Eating at a Christmas party

Sunday:

BLEATS- if you don’t know what these are you are truly missing out.  Imagine a  traditional BLT’s but you add an egg(fried) and avocado. They are pretty much one of the most amazing things you’ll ever have, so you should definitely try it if you haven’t.
