Weekly Menu 10/7/19

Anyone else find it hard to believe we are starting the 2nd week in October! Oh my goodness, this year is flying by!!! It’s time for pumpkin patches, crockpots, sweat shirts and cozy nights by the fire. Fall is my favorite and it is full blown fall right now. I am very thankful for that and want to enjoy it as much as possible, while it lasts! Fall just demands comfort and I will gladly comply! So the crockpot is getting used even more than usual, my fall decorating & wardrobe is all about cozy and comfy,&  on Sunday’s I have started baking and not healthy options either!! I just decided to go for it- you know. Sometimes you just need a caramely, chocolatey dessert!! If you want to follow along, a lot of my daily fun is captured on my Instagram stories click here to be directed to my Instagram page.   Now I guess it’s time to get to our menu for the week!

This is what is cooking in our kitchen this week:

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 (with chicken from Thursday night)


Out to Eat


Pork Shoulder Roast

Have you heard of the Pioneer Woman? I love her show on Food Network. She doesn’t typically make healthy meals, but I have learned to adapt them a little, by making some simple changes. I personally make this into a crockpot meal!

The edits I make are:

When making the marinade/sauce I go step by step, per the recipe except I sub out the sugar- instead of brown sugar, I use coconut sugar
To make it into a crockpot meal, after making the sauce I coat the entire pork roast in the crockpot, flipping it around in it so it coats all sides. Then I put it on low and cook it all day long, over 12 hours
It makes the best shredded pork EVER! You can put it on tortillas, make it into a bowl with rice,or cauliflower rice, or just eat it by itself really- it’s that good.
