Meal Plan Tips:
Pulled Pork Sandwiches: Let the slow cooker do all the work for you. You can easily put everything into the slow cooker insert the evening before and refrigerate. Then, in the morning, remove from the refrigerator and place into the slow cooker, and set the timer. Such an easy, delicious meal to enjoy with family and friends.
Coleslaw: This coleslaw comes together simply and easily, but is also a great make-ahead side dish.
Simple Baked Chicken Breasts: So simple, juicy and ready in 30 minutes! Make extra if you wish to use for another meal later in the week!
Slow Cooker Green Beans: So easy to make these flavorful slow cooker beans, but you can go ahead and prepare them in the insert, place in the fridge overnight, then start the slow cooker in the morning.
Chicken Tortilla Soup: I love that I can make this favorite dish in the slow cooker or Instant Pot! If using my slow cooker, on Monday night, I’ll add all of the ingredients to the insert of my slow cooker and then store it in the refrigerator overnight. Then, on Tuesday morning, I’ll remove it from the refrigerator and place it back into the slow cooker and set the timer. To make in the Instant Pot, I basically just add all of the ingredients to it and cook on the soup setting the designated time in the recipe, then shred the chicken, garnish and serve. You can also cook on the stovetop if you wish – I give that method in the recipe too. Three easy ways to make this delicious family favorite!
Shrimp Scampi: This favorite is ready in 15 minutes! The pasta can cook the same time as the shrimp, making this a quick and easy weeknight meal that is elegant enough for entertaining too. You can replace the traditional pasta in this scampi with plain zucchini noodles or my olive oil and garlic zucchini noodles if you’d like. My family loves this and it’s also great to serve guests.
Best Instant Pot Chili: This tasty chili is easy to make and is ready in just 30 minutes in the Instant Pot. But it tastes like it’s been simmering all day! I’ll do like to prep my chili fixings ahead so they are ready in the fridge. Then I just grab them when it’s time to serve the chili.
Have a great week!
