Kristine's Menu

I haven't done a meal week like this in awhile, but I love it when weeks like this roll around!  Typically, I start the week by cooking a lot of meat with onions, garlic and other spices in a crock pot. The first night, we eat the meat and mashed potatoes and then continue to use the leftover meat (usually by adding other sauces and spices) in a variety of different ways.  I definitely recommend trying it out... it is a major time saver!

Monday: Pot Roast. Mashed Potatoes. Vegetables.
Tuesday: Shredded Beef Enchiladas.  Simply shred the meat, add in enchilada sauce (from the can or homemade), heat in the crockpot for 30+ minutes.  Fill the tortillas with meat, refried beans (optional, but it cuts down the amount of meat I have to use), cheese and roll up.  Top with additional enchilada sauce and cheese and bake!
Wednesday: Beef Sandwiches.
Thursday: Breakfast for dinner
Friday: Stuffed Quesadillas.  If we still have leftover beef, I will make a stuffed quesadilla with that meat. If not, this is one of my go to recipes.
Saturday: Pizza! Not sure if this will be homemade or going out for pizza. But it is one of my favorites!
