Menu Planning Monday #46

Our friends are coming to town this week to visit and WE ARE SO EXCITED! I met my pal, Kristin, in college and we have been going strong ever since. And of course it is just amazing that our husbands have also become friends, as well as our kiddos, so it is just such a good time when we all get together.

So, this week I want to prepare some of our favorites, as well as some of their favorites, but also know that plans can change easily while out and about, and I am okay with that!

So, here is what I have planned for the week.


Teriyaki Pineapple Turkey Burgers

I bought all of the ingredients for these last week, and then we ended up eating some leftovers, so with a beautiful pineapple waiting on my counter we shall have this tonight, instead.

Key Ingredient



Date night = Something easy for the kiddos


I think this night we may either go out or pick something up since our friends get in this day


Taco Bowl with Avocado Lime Dressing 

I add chicken and black beans to this and leave out the rice and it is a fave! Our kiddos prefer the ingredients separate, but for the adults we put them in a bowl all together and YUM!

Paleo Steak Salad with Creamy Garlic Vinaigrette

Crispy Slow Cooker Carnitas (Mexican Pulled Pork)

One of my friends’ go-to meals for her family is carnitas, so I perused Pinterest until this recipe caught my eye. The first trigger for this being the “chosen one” was the word “Crispy.” That just did it for me. Then throw in “Slow Cooker” and you have won me over.

  1. My comment disappear! These are great ideas and that pork carnitas looks divine. I’ll have to try that recipe next. Thanks for sharing.

  2. This sounds fantastic! I’m definitely going to have to try out at least one of these recipes! <3
