Make My Menu Monday

Welcome to another Make My Menu Monday!! There is something about starting Monday off with all of the meals for the week planned, that makes it seem a little more peaceful. An even bigger bonus is if I have some time over the weekend to prepare some things ahead of time. For example- this week, I have the Cool Ranch Taco meat all ready made (for Monday), The taco meat (for Tuesday) & the Cobb Salads (for Wednesday) all made up!


Cool Ranch Tacos (I make a few edits to her recipe)

These are super, super easy & here is what you need~


Chicken Thighs

3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil

2 Tablespoons of Red Wine Vinegar

1 Taco seasoning packet (or click here for a homemade version)

1 Ranch seasoning packet (or use a homemade version-1T dried parsley, 1tsp garlic powder, 1tsp onion powder, 1tsp dried onion flakes, 3/4tsp dill, 1/2tsp pepper, and 1/2 tsp salt)

*Throw everything in the crockpot, Cook on low all day, at least 8 hours

Holy Cow- it doesn’t get much easier than that!!


Taco Salads~

Start with Lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, avocado, cheese.

Top with taco meat.  See the Taco Seasoning recipe below 🙂

Cobb Salad~

We had a salad making girls night! Everyone brings ingredients to share, the lettuce they want to use & mason jars. Each of us made 5 salads!

The ingredients are layered from wet to dry & then keep in the fridge until you are ready to eat!!!


Chicken & Rice bowls

Start with rice- My favorite it Whole Foods frozen rice. It’s easy & tastes really good!!

Top with left over Cool Ranch Chicken (from Monday), veggies, cheese, sour cream, guacamole! YUM!!
