I hope everyone has a safe holiday and a wonderful new year!!
We finally tried the pumpkin enchiladas that I found on Natalie's website. They sound a bit unusual, but I like to try new things. They are sooooo good!! I didn't use the jalapeno...I used 1/2 can diced green chilies in its place and the other half of the can I mixed in with the chicken. Also, when I went to roll the corn tortillas, they were breaking, so I heated them in a little oil in my skillet first. They rolled easily this way, but it made them soft after being baked--which made it more like a casserole. So, my pictures aren't great since the enchilada just broke when I lifted it out, but the taste was still so good!! We will have these again, for sure!!
Also, my blood sugars are acting up the past few days, so I will mostly be having salad as my side dish. Not too exciting, but I'm okay with that.
Monday--pecan chicken, brown rice, steamed veggies (Sadly, we didn't get to this last week--but that means we will have it first thing this week!!).
Tuesday--chili rellenos casserole, rice and beans (for the boys), salad
Wednesday--steak, twice baked cauliflower*, green beans
Thursday--Italian chicken, spaghetti carbonara* (this is in a new cookbook my sister got me for Christmas), salad
Friday--Marla's maid-rites (on buns for the boys--whole wheat tortilla for me-->kind of like sloppy joes), tater tots (for the boys), salad
Lunches (I'm making two soups this week to have on hand for lunch):
Broccoli cheddar soup* (I have broccoli that needs to be used!!)-->I've not decided on a recipe because I have never made this soup. If you have one or know of a good one, please share!!
