This is the week before Spring Break, we have soccer, baseball, and more soccer practices so I am making easy to prep ahead meals to get dinner on the table a little quicker, but still ensuring we are eating healthy.
Sunday: Pulled Pork Sandwiches. I like serving these with homemade jo-jo’s and a big side salad. I also love making some homemade coleslaw to add to the top of the sandwiches. Do you add coleslaw to the top of your pulled pork sandwiches?
Monday: Burrito bowls using the left over pork.
Tuesday: Taco salad. Instead of meat, I will use black beans. For the taco meat I like using ground turkey. My husband doesn’t mind and cannot really tell the difference and either can my kiddos. I love meals like this because you can customize it. Guy only likes the taco meat with a little tomato and cheese while Maddi likes all the veggies.
Wednesday: BLT’s and a chopped brussel sprout salad with lemon vinaigrette.
Thursday: Grilled chicken and veggie sandwiches. I will just eat mine sans bun. I like sauteing peppers and onions to serve on top of grilled chicken.
Friday: Pizza Night!!! I love using the Pioneer Woman’s pizza crust recipe.
Saturday: Olive Garden fake-out salad and bread sticks. I love making copy-cat recipes of some of our favorite restaurants that we do not have local. #smalltownproblems
To make dinner a little easier this week I will chop all the veggies for the burrito bowls, sandwiches, and salads ahead of time. I will also cook the taco meat on Sunday. Working ahead like this allows for easier dinners. Also, using meat for two different meals is a time saver as well (pulled pork sandwiches and then burrito bowls the next day).
What is on the menu at your house this week? I hope you have a great Sunday!
