Menu Planning Week of October 5, 2015

Monday: World's Best Frito Chili Pie
World's Best Frito Chili Pie, serve over rice, Fritos, top with sharp cheddar and coconut flakes. Yes, coconut flakes. They're an amazing finish to chili. Trust me.

Tuesday: Balsamic Pork, Jasmine Rice, Broccoli (didn't get to this recipe last week)

Wednesday: Grilled bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin, mashed potatoes, fresh cranberry sauce, fancy Brussels sprouts
Celebratory Coach is our Hero meal (Ava's fall break snuck up on us and Coach is coming to town to save the days!) 

Thursday: Black-eyed peas, cornbread
These really aren't too spicy. My kids loooove this recipe.  Cornbread, in a cast-iron skillet or nothing at all.

Friday: Twice-baked pork carnitas nachos, fire-roasted salsa, and all the fixins
One of our favorite fun Friday meals, the carnitas are great in breakfast tacos on Saturday morning too!

Bonus: the Best-Ever Sausage Balls
DO NOT make these the size of golf balls, DO NOT cook very long - just until you cut into one in the center of the pan and see no pink. The cream cheese helps these stay delicate, but if you're lazy with your size or linger the timer you will still accomplish the leather boot texture you remember about these appetizers at every horrible church potluck. Just say no.

and Mamaw's Wassail 
Magical fall and winter beverage that will warm you from your toes up. Feel free to add a little vodka (or Rumchata) to finish if you're in the mood!
