Weekly Menu 11/13/17

 

Happy Monday! Are you a quote lover? I sure am. The power of words- they can motivate you or bring you peace. There is one that I have came across by several blogs that I follow. So I thought I would share it with you!!

 

On to my WEEKLY MENU 11/13/17

FYI-   I will be using my crockpot lots this week! 

Monday:

out to eat Fundraiser

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:

leftovers

Thursday:

The basic Chili 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

A little extra bonus I did this time, is in the morning I added some steak to the crockpot, put in some apple cider vinegar and olive oil and cooked it on low all day. Then I shredded that up and used it in the Chili along with hamburger & some bacon- it was pretty amazing!!

Friday:

dinner event

Saturday:

Spaghetti served with spaghetti noodles or spaghetti squash.

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.

 

As I mentioned earlier- my crockpot will get used 3 days this week- Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday! It is something that makes meal planning so much easier! Some days it would not be possible to prepare a meal without it. Not only can I throw in all the ingredients in the morning, but because the crockpot I have, has a “warm” setting on it, I can keep it on for the whole evening ! This is helpful when we can’t all eat together, meals can be grabbed as it is convenient for everyone!! Win Win!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Don’t forget to stop by Organizing Junkie for even more recipes!!
