Menu Plan Monday: I let my daughter pick

This is what the menu looks like when I ask for my daughter's input. Not bad on the days I have her. We're in the process of packing up for a move at the end of the month, so I'm trying to keep most meals to one skillet or so. Last week's menu bleeds into this week.


Monday: Asian Orange Chicken (I cheat and use Fresh and Easy Orange Peel Simmer Sauce and didn't bread the chicken (paleo friendlier) -- that makes this meal 30 minutes or less)
Tuesday: Skirt Steak with Arugula Salad - also 30 minutes or less
Wednesday: Leftovers for me
Thursday: Beef and Bean Chili Verde (she's finally getting tired of this one, but it's so quick and easy). Dessert of African Fruit Fool (adapted -- no papaya for me, no coconut for her, homemade whipped cream is the BEST)
Friday: More Chili Verde...
Saturday: Today is the day I planned to go to storage unit, clean crap out of it, load it with boxes that I won't need immediately. Perfect day to use the crock-pot and this recipe for Casablanca Chutney Chicken. Absolutely delish! And tastes better the next day. Serve over couscous (or not to keep it Paleo).
Sunday: It's Cinco de Mayo! Using one of the meals my father taught me -- Turkey (Chicken -- why can't I find turkey legs in the store anymore???!!!???) Mole with Spanish Rice

What are your favorite one pot meals?
