Meal planning and prepping tips
- Consider doubling the BBQ Pork Recipe - it freezes great and can be used for those days when you just don't feel like cooking. We're using it for tacos this week, but it also is great in a quesadilla, topping a salad or over rice.
- Additionally the Baked Beans freeze great as well. Allow it to cool completely, seal well and freeze.
- There's a ton of diced onions needed this week - dice them in advance to save time, storing them in a plastic container or ziplock bag - as long as they are used within three days, you're good!
- Don't forget check your schedule and make this meal plan work for YOU!. If there's a day you'll be eating out, just cross those items off your grocery list!
BBQ Pulled Pork
Use this BBQ Pulled Pork Recipe to make sliders on Super Bowl Sunday or go carb free and just enjoy the bbq! This is GREAT! It's easy to make and completely delicious. Recipe includes both pressure cooker and slow cooker instructions.
You're going to love how good it is and it's a meal the whole family will love. Save the leftovers, we're going to use them on Tuesday!
Cornbread and goes so well with bbq pulled pork. If you're not into sliders, just bake some cornbread and make baked beans and you'll have quite the meal!
Isn't this the perfect meal combination? YUM!!! I love baked beans.
When I make this I'll usually double the recipe because it freezes GREAT! Sometimes I make it in the crockpot or stovetop, in the summer I make them on the grill.
The perfect side dish!!!
Luxuriously creamy and rich yet so good for you! This Carrot Soup Recipe is light and delicious!
I accidentally ordered a HUGE bag of carrots last week! This was such a wonderful way to use them up. I hate seeing things going to waste.
This no-knead parmesan quick bread would be delicious with the soup!
BBQ Pork Tacos
Today is Taco Tuesday and you guessed it, we're using leftover BBQ pork to make some yummy tacos! Not in the mood for tacos? Use the leftovers to make quesadillas or nachos. Delicious!
Bacon Cheeseburger Soup
This super delicious Cheeseburger Soup Recipe is a MUST MAKE! It's meaty and delicious and just as good as your favorite burger!
PLUS it's stuffed with bacon. It's cheesy and mouthwatering, this is a great meal!
Tex Mex Chicken and Zucchini
Skillet Chicken and Zucchini - Pure comfort food in a skillet that is simple and delicious! I'm a big fan of one pot meals!
It's creamy, easy to make and delicious! It's flavorful and stuffed with zucchini and topped with cheese. Even your pickiest eaters will have a hard time saying no to this meal!
Macaroni and Cheese
Who can say who to great Mac n Cheese? I love how easy to make and you can always make it heartier with some leftover BBQ Pork.
Homemade is the BEST!
Since everyone is getting a delicious rich meal, lighten it up with some roasted broccoli. One it roasts and caramelized it's so much better than steamed or raw!
Bonus? Prep the broccoli the day before and you can just toss it on a pan in the oven on Friday!
Egg Roll in a Bowl
This "Egg Roll in a Bowl" is a quick and healthy dinner that's ready in about 20 minutes!
It has all of your favorite flavors and comes together so easily (using a coleslaw mix!) it's amazing!
If you want more to go along with the meal make some homemade potstickers. Perfect side with this meal!
Banana Split Milkshake
You'll be everyone's favorite when you serve up a Banana Split Milkshake on Friday night!
How fun is this recipe? Top it with your favorites, like sliced strawberries, chunks of pineapple and hot fudge. Enjoy!
Don't forget, before you go to the store, shop your pantry, refrigerator and freezer first. Cross-off items you already have on hand. Staying organized will save you time and money!
