Mom's Tacos

These were unbelievably delicious! I cannot even describe their amazingness - you have to try them!!! The Rotel was a perfect mix-in for the regular taco mix :) Also, it's hard to photograph soft shell tacos!!

Menu Plan Monday - 5.30.2011

So I'm really late on this one. I figured while what I assumed to be guys came over to clean my carpet - a free shampooing I "won" - turned into a 6 hour long girl trying to sell me a Kirby ($2500)...she vacuumed my couch, living room and mattress. She shampooed a SPOT on my carpet. UGHHHHH. I didn't even get to go grocery shopping and we ended up eating McDonald's for dinner.

But I digress...
Here's what we're eating this week (minus today) with a lot of repeats from last week:

Tuesday: Baked Oatmeal with Berries, Broccoli Shells & Cheese, Italian Drip Beef on Easy Dinner Rolls

Wednesday: Bacon & Egg Toast Cups, Chicken nuggets and french fries, Provalone Chicken with Baked Potato Skins and salad

Thursday: Cereal, pizza, Coney Island Hotdogs with corn on the cob and chips

Friday: Silver Dollar Pancakes with Blueberry Syrup, Tuna Noodle Casserole, Broccoli Fettuccine Alfredo

Saturday: Chocolate Chip Muffins, Hot dogs with yogurt and rice cakes, Freezer Meal

Sunday: Poptarts, Grilled Cheese with yogurt and chips, Cheesy Chili Mac

Extras: The Chewy, PB Lovers' Candy Cookie Bites, Root Beer Float Cookies, S'Mores Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Strawberry Lemonade

This was an adaptation from a Betty Crocker recipe for Raspberry Lemonade. I've got a bit of a flavored lemonade obsession going on and this was absolutely perfect!

Sticky Chicken in the Crockpot

This was incredibly good :) I love baking meat in the crockpot - it always turns out so moist and tender! I ended up using breasts instead of a whole chicken and cooked it on high for 3 1/2 hours. My friend, Brandi, said she adds lemon halves inside the chicken sometimes. I'm going to try that next time we make it!

Savory Meat Loaf

I really liked this recipe for meatloaf. It actually reminded me a lot of my mother-in-law's :)

Menu Plan Monday - 5.23.2011

This week is the start of my new "life project" - so my goals are to NOT sleep in and wait for the kids to be my alarm. I want to make more unprocessed stuff for lunch as well. I am also starting to clip coupons out of the Sunday paper (I bought my first one yesterday - my first one in the 4 1/2 years I've been an "adult" and out on my own) and will no longer shop at the commissary for their lack of good products. I've had too many bad meat experiences lately.

Here's what I have planned:

  • Cereal
  • Chicken nuggets and fries
  • Spaghetti with Prego (homemade), broccoli and garlic bread

  • Baked Oatmeal with Berries
  • Grilled cheese, fruit and veggies for dipping
  • Grill out - Hot dogs, pineapple and corn on the cob with baked beans

  • Silver Dollar Pancakes with Syrup for Blueberry Pancakes
  • Quesadillas with rice
  • Leftovers


  • Poptarts
  • Hot dogs, chips and yogurt
  • Mom's Taco and Mexican Rice



This week I will be coming back and adding links as I post the new recipes :)
I hope everyone has a good week!

Roasted Spicy Mayonnaise Chicken Breasts

I will most likely cut down on the lemon zest next time and amp up the heat - BUT with that being said...DROOL!!!! Oh my!

Friday, May 20, 2011

I've decided...
