Weekly Menu December 4, 2017

Happy Monday! It is hard to believe that it’s December already! I am so behind on my Christmas shopping, so that is definitely a goal for this week!! We are starting a fun Christmas tradition this year- I came across a Christmas Acts of Kindness Calendar that has a small act of kindness for every day in December leading up to Christmas. So I am blogging about that every day! Click here to see Day 1 and here to see Day 2!  Now- On to our Weekly Menu!!

Breakfast for Dinner


Dinner at a Friends


I am going to use my Instapot for the FIRST time! I am pretty excited!

Intant Pot Beef & Broccoli 

A few changes I will make- coconut aminos instead of soy sauce and arrow root powder instead of cornstarch.


Out to eat


Chili & cinnamon rolls

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

****Quick tip: I went ahead and cooked the hamburger for the Chili. Then I put it it in a freezer baggie and into the freezer. Then on Sunday that is one less step I will need to do!! This hands free baggie holder is a lifesaver! 

Do you use an Instant Pot? Please share with me your favorite recipes or any tips or tricks!
