Recipes for this Week’s Meal Plan:

  • Carnitas with Black Beans and Cilantro Lime Rice (“Carnitas” not included in this week’s plan, but feel free to add it as a delicious accompaniment to your beans and rice!)
  • Tomato Egg Cups
  • For Cheesy Grits, follow package instructions and add 1/2 c. of shredded cheddar (or your favorite cheese) during the last 2 minutes of cooking; a few cloves of minced garlic is also a nice addition.
  • For the Garlic Toast, I highly recommend mincing fresh garlic and spreading it on your toast with butter before broiling. Yum!
