It’s Meal Plan Monday! I missed last week because we had company in town, and I don’t know about you but I am always a little off-routine when I have company. I welcome the change, though! Now that it’s just us, back to Meal planning! You ready for a full week of recipes for an easy meal plan?!
This week I mixed in a family favorite recipe, but the bulk of the plan is…you guessed it! eMeals! I seriously love the ease of planning my whole week in minutes and my family loves the variety! (Read my full eMeals review HERE). Let’s get to it. Click the pink links for the recipe, as usual!
Mondays are hectic for me. I usually reserve them for my slow cooker meals (Mad shout out to my Ninja Foodi…my kitchen BFF!). Mississippi (you totally spelled that, didn’t you) Pot Roast is legitimately one of our favorite meals. It’s one of those things that we all thoroughly enjoy, so I try to rotate it into our plan once every few weeks. I base mine off of this recipe from Slow Cooker Foodiewith just a couple of tweaks to suit our preferences! I usually do a full stick of butter, and I don’t bother cutting it into cubes. I also do about 10-12 pepperoncini peppers to add a bit more boldness! I typically throw some baby carrots in the pot under my roast, and serve with a side of Bob Evans mashed potatoes. Total cheater, but they are quick and delicious!
Quick, easy and kid friendly. This is my kind of recipe! Daddy will be busy all day on Tuesday, so I’m all for the idea of an easy dinner that the kids will actually eat. Plus, it’s one of my “carb days,” so I can enjoy it, too!
Okay, just reading the name of that recipe made my mouth water! Delicious, low-carb (hey Gestational Diabetes friends!) and budget friendly. We love broccoli, and it is a great alternative to fries for the burger side!
I bought the Jack Daniels pulled pork from Walmart for this recipe just for the sake of ease! If you wanted to be fancy, you could totally make your own pulled pork. I ain’t got time for that this week, though.
Cooking tip: Roast the bacon in a Large Stone Bar Pan under broil until it reaches your desired crispness. Way less messy and tastes delicious! Not to mention, the Mix N Masher makes potatoes so much easier!
Saturdays are the perfect day for a pizza day! This particular recipe is low-carb using cauliflower pizza crust, but you could really easily sub your favorite pizza crust in if that’s not your style! Homemade Alfredo sauce is so easy and adds the best flavor! (I’ll be using my favorite Pizza stone to get that delicious crisp crust!)
A yummy, healthy Easter dinner! Delicious, fresh veggies and flavorful pork tenderloin. We love this combo!
I hope that full week of recipes helps you out a bit this week! Try something new, you may just be surprised!
