new menu again

sometimes this is so easy... other times it takes all day... and then sometimes it's just like pulling teeth and you have to go for two weeks without food to realize you NEED to make a menu!  this time, it was the first of the few options.  thankfully.  i've found a few websites/blogs/whatever that help make this easier.  if you're interested i'll share, otherwise i'll just keep them to myself.
  • chili (in the crockpot) and cornbread.  i usually always get the chili made, i'll really try hard to remember the cornbread this time!  we love cornbread and it's not hard... it just does take more than 5 minutes.
  • pork chops with fruit salsa and mashed potatoes.
  • floating tacos.
  • chicken fettucini alfredo with garlic toast and green beans.
  • homemade tomato soup with some gourmet grilled cheese sandwhiches.
  • sweet and sour chicken (in the crockpot) with rice and steamed stir fry veggies.
  • pesto minestrone soup with fresh bread
  •  stuffed shells with garlic bread, steamed broccoli, and maybe a green salad as well.
  • crockpot bbq chicken (the easy recipe where you throw in the chicken and pour bbq sauce all over it) with corn and mashed taters.
  • breakfast for dinner = eggs, hashbrowns, and sausage links.
  • a fun new chicken crockpot recipe either made into burritos or maybe a yummy salad depending on how it smells when it's done.  i'll serve this with corn and rice.
sorry no fancy pictures this time.  i thought while it was easy to make the menu i might as well get it all done and over before the hard part strikes.  (probably the grocery shopping, even though i did make my list already and have it sectioned out to different parts of the store.)
Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." COMMENT! IT SHOWS ME THAT I'M BEING READ!!!

What are floating tacos?

MamaT said...

floating tacos are a wonderful dinner our friends introduced us to. it's a sweet hamburger/rice mix that's fairly juicy and really flavorful. you put it over corn chips and top it with taco toppings and then drizzle it's "special sauce" over it. (the special sauce is much like a thick ranch dressing.
we LOVE floating tacos!
