Menu Plan Week of 2/13

Better late than never!  We are putting our house on the market one week from today.  Life is just a little bit crazy as a result.  This makes it all the more important that we have healthy meals on the table at the dinner hour, along with a stockpile of healthy snacks.  Now, to find some time to grocery shop.... hmmmm..... :)

Monday:  Sausage and Shrimp Pasta (make it without the half and half for dairy free, I will not be using pepperoncini to make it more kid-friendly!)

Tuesday:  Happy Valentines Day! :)  Burgers, veggie and a special valentine treat (to be determined)

Wednesday:  Pork Tenderloin with roasted potato wedges and salad
Tip:  Prepare slow cooker with pork the night before.

Thursday:  Poblano, Mango and Black Bean Quesadillas
Tip:  Prepare the filling the night before, heat inside the quesadilla before dinner!

Friday:  Mexican Sloppy Joe's and raw veggies
(batch cook, cut the recipe in half if you do not want leftovers!)
Note:  Sloppy Joe recipe:  brown 2 lbs beef in 3 tbsp. coconut oil.  Mix in slow cooker with 4 cups salsa, 4 shredded carrots, 1 diced bell pepper (or jarred roasted pepper), 6 tbsp. tomato paste, 4 pressed garlic cloves, 1 tbsp. Italian seasoning, 2 tsp. salt).  Cook on LOW for 8-10 hours.  Serve on rolls.

Saturday:  Out

Sunday:  Chicken and Wild Rice Soup (with or without the roux mixed in!)
