Save $$$ Menu Planning with Publix Ad

These last couple of weeks the savings in the Publix ad haven’t been as substantial as they normally are, but I am still able to find some savings to use in my menu planning!  This week’s menu:

Good For You Chicken Soup

Memphis Grilled Salmon with Mango Salsa

Slow Cooker Shredded Beef Burritos

Rancher Grilled Steaks with Blue Cheese Crowns

Publix shopping list 7.21.16


Slow Cooker Carnitas

Pork Roast

¾ cup organic chicken broth

¾ cup beer (or more chicken broth)

2 tablespoons Wildtree Natural Grapeseed Oil

Fresh ground sea salt & pepper

1 bunch chopped green onion

1 bunch minced cilantro

1 cup salsa

1 can chopped chiles

1 teaspoon Wildtree Fajita Seasoning

1 ½ teaspoons Wildtree Garlic Galore Seasoning

Combine all ingredients in crockpot.  (If you’re working, you can do this the night before and refrigerate overnight so that all you have to do is turn on the crockpot in the morning!)  Cook on high 30-60 minutes, then low 6-8 hours.  Shred pork and return to crockpot with juices.

Serve in warmed tortillas (I use corn tortillas because I avoid wheat, but you can use whichever you choose.  It would also be good in flatbread!)  Add toppings of your choice.  I like chopped onion, shredded cheese and a little sour cream.  Delicioso!

Fish Tacos with Jicama Slaw

My husband loves tacos, so I love to make them for him.  I try to avoid red meat and dairy, so I am always looking for alternative taco ideas that I can eat while he enjoys his traditional tacos.  This one has quickly become my favorite!

3 fresh tilapia filets, or other mild whitefish

1 tablespoon Wildtree Organic Fajita Seasoning Blend

1 jicama, peeled and cut matchstick style

1 mango, peeled and cut matchstick style

1 small onion, diced

fresh cilantro

juice of two fresh limes

1/2 teaspoon Wildtree Organic Spicy Carne Asada Seasoning

1/2 teaspoon Wildtree Organic Adobo Seasoning

Spread Wildtree Fajita Seasoning on fish and bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes.

While fish cooks, combine the remaining ingredients into Jicama Slaw.  Cut up fish, and place in taco shells of your choice.  Top with Jicama Slaw and enjoy!
