Menu Plan Monday: July 16, 2007

Menu Plan Monday

After being out of town for several days, it is so nice to be home again!  Here’s our menu for this week:

Monday:  Today we are celebrating our boys’ “Gotcha Day” which was really yesterday, so we are eating out!  It is hard to believe we have been a family for two years now.  Sometimes it seems like it couldn’t possibly have been two years already.  On other days, I feel like we’ve been a family forever.

Tuesday:  Tacos

Wednesday:  Crock Pot Cheesy Ravioli Casserole and salad.  I originally found this recipe at Multitasking Mama.

Thursday:  Peachy Pork & Salsa (see recipe below), white rice, fruit

Friday:  Fresh Grilled Summer Pizzas, fruit, pasta salad.  I orginally found this recipe at I’m An Organizing Junkie.

Saturday:  Poppy Seed Chicken, salad, garlic bread. 

Sunday:  Leftover Buffet

Of course, it seems inevitable that at least one of these items gets pushed off until the week, but this is the goal anyway.  🙂

Peachy Pork & Salsa

1 lb boneless pork chops or pork loin, cubed

1 pkg taco seasoning

1 cup salsa (can use any–I usually use Pace’s medium heat but have used others)

3 heaping tablespoons peach preserves (if you don’t have these, grape or strawberry work as well)

Several tablespoons oil

Toss cubed pork in taco seasoning and oil.  Brown over medium high heat in skillet.  Stir in salsa and preserves and bring to a boil.  Immediately upon reaching boil, turn down and cover.  Simmer 20 minutes.  This is great served over steamed rice.  The sauce is yummy!  It has sort of a sweet and spicy flavor.  Serves 4.
