Menu Plan Monday

I'm linking up with Rachel today to share our menu!

 First off, I have to say that I have found my new favorite meal. Burrito Bowls. I made them twice last week & they are so easy and good!
Here is how I made mine...I used:
1 chicken breast
taco seasoning (you can use store bought or make your own)
Boil in a bag brown rice
1 can black beans
1 single serving of steam fresh corn
1 avocado

I marinated my chicken in a little olive oil & taco seasoning and then grilled it. I combined the cooked rice, rinsed black beans, and cooked corn. After it was combined I squeezed some fresh lime juice on it. Top that mixture with the cut up grilled chicken, sliced avocado, a little shredded cheese, salsa, & fresh cilantro. This is so good -- leftovers are good, too!

Okay, on to our menu for this week!
Monday: leftovers from our Oven Baked Fajitas

Tuesday: Pepperoncini Beef sandwiches with roasted sweet potato wedges

Wednesday: chicken cutlets & brown gravy, roasted broccoli, & mashed potatoes

Thursday: Cilantro Lime chicken (adapted from this recipe) w/ brown rice & black beans

Friday: Chicken burrito bowl using leftover rice & beans

Sunday: leftovers

we do burrito bowls too! I like to cook some chicken in Target's salsa verde to use for them. You can also cook a pork shoulder in the crockpot and use that meat in burrito bowls as well.

Other great toppings are those crispy tortilla strips, cilantro, and sour cream along with the beans, rice, etc.
