Menu Planning Monday

Well last weeks menu plan changed a little (read about those changes here) but was very successful. The leftover chicken, from the Maui Chicken showed up in today's menu on the Ginger BBQ Chicken Pizza. We added another days menu to Tuesday and didn't go out to eat. But as the saying goes, "Life Happens." I hope y'all get inspired to cook as a family and try something new. Let me know what kind of food your family is interested in. My daughter and I decided that most crock pot cooking turns out really bland. We have a really easy and delicious pulled pork, done in the crock pot on this weeks menu.
Monday-Homemade Ginger BBQ Chicken Pizza and cantaloupe
Fresh Fruit
Wednesday-Shrimp Enchiladas w/lettuce, tomato, avocado, salsa, and sour cream (We have tweaked the enchilada recipe to our taste, we only use about 2 Tbs of green chilies and we use the red enchilada sauce not the green.
Friday-Baked Ziti with a side salad (The recipe we use for the baked ziti comes from the clean eating cookbook. The main difference from most recipes is we use 1 bag of matchstick carrots.)
Saturday-Dinner Out after Church
Sunday-Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Pesto Potato Salad, and Fresh Fruit (Our recipe for pulled pork is 3 to 6 pounds of pork tenderloin or roast, 1 can sweeten condensed milk, 1 can of coke, 2 cinnamon sticks, 1 to 2 bay leaves put into a crock pot and cooked on low for 8 hours.)
Remember to, "Bring the Kids into the Kitchen."
This weeks Menu Planning Monday is being hosted by The Happy Housewife.
