Menu Plan

Do you remember when I shared with you a while back that my family was tired of pasta? Well apparently I’ve now overdone it with burritos! My husband, who will eat anything, balked at some leftover burritos today. I guess I’ll be spending my free time next week creating a few new recipes for our family’s menu plan.

Pork has been on sale at the commissary the past few weeks and I’ve been experimenting with different crock pot pork recipes. My husband is my chief taste tester, so when I asked him if he liked my latest recipe he said it was “good.” I replied, “better than the last one, or just good?”

The truth came out when he said,

“I don’t really know, I’ve smothered all of them in BBQ sauce.”

Apparently I can stop with all experimenting, dump a bottle of BBQ sauce in the crock pot, and call it a day. 🙂

    We ate your brown sugar muffins this morning for breakfast. They are awesome for Sunday morning because they don’t stain church clothes 🙂
    Your husband cracks me up with the bbq sauce! My brother, Michael, lives with us and he SLATHERS all types of food with bbq sauce. Maybe I should simply thrown bald meat in front of him and let him go at it 🙂

  2. My husband loves BBQ sauce and most recently the one we get from Trader Joes as it’s got a slight kick to it. I had him make a meal the other day from a leftover meal that was to be turned into soup. Well, it was ok but he shouldn’t have put bbq sauce in it. 4 Tbls is too much and nearly ruined it for me and my daughter couldn’t eat it as it was too hot for her so she had to get something else from a convenience store for dinner. She was at work. Bummer. So he’s not allowed to spice stuff up with bbq sauce, save the hotter for his own plate! He meant well though! :*>

  3. Pork is a curious thing at my house – hubs LOVES bacon and every kind of sausage, but he is not a fan of pork in tenderloin, pork chop, or roast form. Ham is okay, but uncured pork is not his favorite. (I’ve noticed it on sale here too, but it does me no good….)

  4. Looks good!! Love pasta and burritos 🙂

    Here’s our menu for the week:

  5. That sounds about like my husband! Too funny…

    I am going to give your brown sugar and cinnamon muffins a try, they sound so very good!

  6. I had to laugh about your hubby’s response. Reminds me of my husband~only he smothers everything in hot sauce:)

  7. Great menu. I love checking out other’s menus. It gives me idea for ways to spruce up mine.
