Monday – Grilled Pork Chops, Salad, & Potatoes

Ingredients – 1 pork chop per person or more for leftovers, potatoes, chives, salt, pepper, lettuce/greens, hard boiled eggs, 1 can of garbanzo beans, 1 can of kidney beans, red onion, feta cheese,  yogurt ranch, balsamic glaze, olive oil.

Pork Chops – grill on the BBQ, season with your favorite dry rub.

Potatoes – I will be roasting small red potatoes in the oven.  I season with salt and olive oil, bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes or until fork tender.

Salad – Chop eggs, tomatoes, onion, drain beans, add feta, drizzle with yogurt ranch (I use Bolthouse brand), Trader Joe’s Balsamic Glaze and olive oil.

Tuesday – Breakfast Burritos

Ingredients – eggs, cheese, any veggies you have on hand, potatoes, bacon, or sausage, tortillas.

We love breakfast for dinner!  I throw together whatever we have in skillet, stir in a few eggs per person and top with cheese and often hot sauce, salsa or avocado.  It’s fast, easy, cheap and delicious!

Wednesday – Rotisserie Chicken, Green Beans, & Salad

Ingredients – whole chicken, 1 lb fresh green beans, red onion, bacon, lettuce/greens, hard boiled eggs, 1 can of garbanzo beans, 1 can of kidney beans, red onion, feta cheese,  yogurt ranch, balsamic glaze, olive oil.

Chicken -We tend to BBQ chicken seasoned with a dry rub with our rotisserie attachment, buying a cooked rotisserie chicken from the grocery store is a fast and inexpensive alternative.

Green beans – snap or cut off the ends of the fresh green beans, dice red onion, cook a few pieces of bacon.  Once bacon is cooked, remove from pan and add green beans to bacon grease, not a diet food!  Then add red onion.  Cook until green beans are fork tender.

Salad – Same as Monday night.

Thursday – Crockpot Spaghetti & Meatballs & Salad

Crockpot Sausage & Peppers – slice bell peppers and onion, mince basil, parsley and garlic.  Add to crockpot with pasta sauce and tomato paste.  Optional add more veggies such as mushrooms, zucchini, kale or spinach.  Stir well about an hour before you want to eat, add the meatballs.  Cover and cook on high for 5+ hours.  Serve over pasta.

Salad – Chop eggs, tomatoes, onion, drain beans, add feta, drizzle with yogurt ranch (I use Bolthouse brand), Trader Joe’s Balsamic Glaze and olive oil.
