The Meal Plan:

Saturday and Sunday: Out of town – Sunday it will probably be a “free night” dinner and I just may eat a grilled cheese sandwich with sprouted wheat and seed bread.
Monday: Vegetable Curry
Tuesday: Spinach and pepper stuffed chicken breasts with asparagus and dessert
Wednesday: Mom request: Creamy pork chops over rice + green beans  (slow-cooker)
Thursday: Beef Verde Chili and side salad
Friday: Steaks with potatoes and asparagus

What we actually ate:
Saturday through Tuesday went as planned, as did tonight’s dinner.
Wednesday: Beef tacos with lettuce, spinach, avocado, sour cream and cheese (I was really craving these and they were so satisfying to eat!)
Thursday: Creamy crock-pot pork (recipe at the bottom) with spinach salad

What I have left:

  • A can of cream of mushroom soup (a cheat for most of us, probably)
  • Green sauce
  • green chiles

Creamy Crock-Pot Pork Recipe

(it’s not pretty, but it still tastes good!)

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs pork chops, pork loin, or pork shoulder
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Pepper
  • Garlic powder or 2 cloves garlic, diced

Directions:

  • Sprinkle pork with pepper and sear in hot pan with olive oil or animal fat
  • Mix soup, milk, garlic, and some more pepper in slow cooker
  • Place pork in slow cooker, making sure to coat with sauce mix
  • Cook on low for 5+ hours (our pork was really thick sirloin chops, and they shredded beautifully after cooking all day)
  • Serve on rice, with a spinach salad, or as a sandwich filling
