Menu Monday

I tried several new recipes last week and wanted to share them with you.  They were delicious and really easy which are the best kind of recipe if you ask me.  
Here was our menu last week.

1. cinnamon toast & fruit
2. cereal & fruit
3. oatmeal
4. donuts

1. dinner leftovers
2. grilled cheese
3. sandwiches/paninis
4. big salads with tons of veggies

1. Grilled Brats
2. Takeout
3. Cafe Rio Pork Burrito Bowls (I posted this favorite recipe last year)

4. Pulled Pork BBQ  (serves 8-10 adults)
3lb pork roast
1 t garlic powder
1 t ground mustard
1/2 t salt
1/2 t pepper
1 - 18oz bottle of your favorite BBQ Sauce 
(our current fave is: Kraft Sweet & Spicy Chipotle)

Combine all of the ingredients for your rub in a bowl.  Then rub it on the meat in the crock pot.  Pour in about 2 cups of water.  Cook on low for 6-8 hours.  Remove meat from the water.  Dump the water, shred the meat once it's cool and discard the fat.  Put all of the meat back in the crock pot and generously coat with BBQ sauce.  Leave in the crock pot to cook for another hour or so.  Eat!!  Your house will smell amazing all day and your hubby will be dying to eat this tasty BBQ.  It's definitely the best BBQ I've ever made.  Can't wait to have it again real soon.

5. Pepperoni Pinwheels (Another family favorite recipe)
a different spin on traditional pizza & is really fun to eat

Reese's Oatmeal Cookies

These cookies were so good!  They kind of tasted like the pb girl scout cookies.  I cut the recipe in half and made a few changes: no PB chips because I didn't have any, 1 cup of rolled oats instead of 1/4 cup and I baked them for only 11 minutes and let them cool on the cookie sheet. 

My menu for this week includes more paninis, brinner (breakfast for dinner), pasta, salads and more grilling since the weather is supposed to be nice.  Hope you find a new recipe or two to try out with your family this week.
