Apple Dijon Pork & Steak Burritos

I've been participating in Menu Plan Monday hosted by Organizing Junkie to help me get organized with cooking dinner. I'm doing Weight Watchers and have found that if I don't preplan my meals, I don't lose weight. So, Menu Plan Monday is good for my weight loss efforts.

Because I'm doing Weight Watchers and because my typical cooking got me this way, I've been trying new recipes. Probably 5-6 meals each week are new to us until I get a list of things we like enough to keep. Each week, I'll update on how we liked the meals.

I got a request for a review on the Apple Dijon Pork Roast that was on my menu this week. We had it last night and it came out very well. My husband and I liked both the flavorful pork and the sweet and tangy sauce. My kids gave the meat a thumbs up without the sauce. I'll be making it again. I think I'll try browning the roast before putting it in the slow cooker to make it look nicer when it comes out though.

I also mentioned that the Steak Burritos from the week before were very good. I can't wait to have these again! Yum! I wanted to post a photo of that meal but I forgot so here it is. This whole plate full of food was 11 points.

Doesn't it look like it came from a restaurant? See you next Monday with another menu and more reviews.

Yay for successful new recipes! Those steak burritos look excellent and definitely a meal that would go well in my house. I'll have to try it. :)

Mmmmm. I've got a pork roast in my freezer that's begging for the recipe. :) Thanks for sharing.
