Menu Plan Monday

Uggg  It was a looong weekend, but I slugged it out (manlet being sick and some unpleasant house happenings).  So this is Monday.  Yea..... I actually did drag myself and Kateena to the gym and begrudgingly worked out. 

Here is my menu plan for the week:

Monday :  Pantry Pork Roast from The Durfee Family Recipes  here is the recipe: 

1 (2 lb.) pork roast
1 envelope dry onion soup mix (I used Lipton's beefy onion soup mix)
1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
3 Tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce
1 cup water
1 cup low-sodium vegetable broth (you could also use beef or chicken broth, whatever you have on hand)
pepper, to taste

Add pork roast to crock pot. Pour onion soup mix, soy sauce, water, broth, and garlic powder over top of roast. Flip roast a few time to get it evenly coated. Add some freshly cracked black pepper over top of roast. Cook on low for 4 hours. Let roast rest for 5-10 minutes before cutting. Strain remaining liquid and serve on the side like an au jus. 

Tuesday:  Chicken Marsala, carrots, mashed potatoes. 

Wednesday: Tilapia, rice, green beans.

Thursday: Pork fried rice ( left over pork roast)

Friday:  Friend's house Friday- Kateena is hosting so I am doing a jello mold for dessert- she'll love it!

Saturday: Left overs!

So there you go.  One week menu, Sunday is omitted as it is Super bowl Sunday and eating will consist of junk apps all day long, I mean c'mon it's a Pats Superbowl!

Have a great week!
