Meal Plan Monday: A New Chipotle-Inspired Twist on an Old Fave

Meal Plan Monday

The recipe I’m most excited about is the tacos using the leftovers carnitas that were Chipotle-inspired from Better in Bulk.  Sometimes it’s important to change up old favorites so that they don’t become boring.  Another twist we are making is to make Pizza Grilled Cheese (using the electric skillet outside).  Sometimes one has to make adaptations to meet the needs of the Please Don’t Heat Up the Kitchen New Recipe Challenge.

Yes, the challenge still continues.  I’m planning to post a menu of already tried-and-true faves for the challenge the week that we are in “Oh, Canada!”

By the way, I’m not sure how nailed in stone Saturday’s menu plan is.  Muffin is going to the birthday party of one of Josh’s coworker’s grandsons, so Saturday is a-whatever-happens-happens day.

Saturday:  Pizza Pasta Salad adapted from Pocket Change Gourmet

Sunday:  Memphis BBQ Chopped Salad adapted from Kraft Recipes

Monday:  Crock Pot “Pork” Tips and Gravy adapted from Country Cook

Tuesday:  tacos made from leftover carnitas

Wednesday:  Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplings from The Slow Roasted Italian

Thursday:  Slow Cooker Hawaiian Chicken (or possibly pork if there is any left over of the tenderloin tips from Monday) from New Leaf Wellness

Friday:  Pizza Grilled Cheese from Forkful of Comfort with corn

Saturday:  grilled burgers

Sunday:  Father’s Day at Olive Garden (Josh’s choice)

As usual, I will be linking up at OrgJunkie’s Menu Plan Monday.
