Meal Planning week of 4/22/13

This is a week of a lot of "new" recipes for us. I've been making the Spanish Pork Roast for many years, but haven't ever shared it here before (and even though it's made it onto my menu planning several times, it seems to get bumped!), but pretty much all the other main dishes are new this week! I bought a big bag of avocados at Sam's a week or so ago and they are all ripe and ready to enjoy, so that definitely influenced the menu. I usually only buy one at a time and use them up on sandwiches, wraps, or salads, but I had enough to actually need to look up some recipe ideas for them! I love homemade guacamole and am excited to try that out this week. My husband really enjoys guac too, so I know we'll all enjoy that. If there's leftovers I'm sure we'll have nachos or tacos over the weekend to enjoy it with.
