Menu Monday

     Hey Folks! It's a short week for Menu Monday because we will be leaving for Pigeon Forge after Tim gets off work on Thursday. I'm super excited about our trip and being able to relax for a couple days. We had a really good week of dinners last week and I highly recommend several of the recipes. 
    Our favorites were: cilantro lime tilapia tacos, grilled flank steak with black beans and corn, and the sweet and fiery pork tenderloin with mango salsa. You can find links to all of these recipes on last week's post. 
This was our flank steak recipe with cucumber onion salad.
This is the sweet and fiery pork tenderloin with mango salsa, coconut brown rice, and sauteed spinach. (I would skip the coconut brown rice)
  • Monday: Bacon topped turkey meatloaf with barbecue sauce.  I'm not a huge fan of turkey as a substitute for ground beef in most things, but Skinny Taste does make a good turkey meat loaf. And this version, with barbecue and bacon, can't be any worse! And the interesting thing is that it uses zucchini in the meatloaf mix. I will use Sonny's sweet barbecue sauce because it is Tim's favorite. We'll have it with sauteed green beans and glazed baby carrots. 
  • Tuesday: Sausage stuffed zucchini boats.  This is an interesting looking recipe from Skinny Taste. And I happen to have a couple links of spicy turkey sausage in the freezer. Tim and I both really like zucchini so we're happy to eat it in one way or another for two days in a row. Plus, it's a great summer vegetable. We'll have it with a side salad.  
  • Wednesday: Chocolate chip banana pancakes. I'm craving a breakfast for dinner kind-of meal and this recipe from Skinny Taste looks pretty yummy. And I have a feeling that Owen might eat his dinner without a fuss if we make this. Maybe. He's still not a big fan of bananas. We will eat them with leftover bacon from Monday night's dinner.
