Menu Plan Monday...

Ahhhh. A new week!! Hopefully I can get back on track this week!! Last week I didn't even post a menu--that is so unlike me!! However, I got food poisoning and was very sick. Food did NOT sound good, even once I was feeling a little better, I didn't want to plan what we would eat. Now, I'm better and back to planning!

So, here are a few updates from the last couple of weeks on new things we tried.

The swiss steak turned out pretty good!! I was too lazy to remove the meat and veggies at the end and add flour to thicken the sauce, but it was still very good. I served it with noodles, but I think that since I didn't thicken the sauce, it would have been great with brown rice. We'll have it again, for sure! (Sorry, I didn't get a picture of it.)

The almond chicken dijon and macaroni and cheese also turned out pretty good. Unfortunately for this meal, I got sick the day after I made it (not from it) and it just didn't sound good anymore. Good thing Logan and hubby were happy to eat the leftovers!!

I have already mentioned that I made and we loved Nicole's rice. Well, last week I also made up some of the enchiladas that she has posted with the rice recipe. They are SUPER yummy!!! I made two pans, so we are having them again this week!! You have to try them!! As I said before about the rice, I use one 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes in place of the tomato sauce and I just sprinkle in some ground cumin, as I don't have the seeds. YUM!!

Now---on to this week!

Ohhh. Food poisoning is so awful; I hope you are well soon!

OK those Indian Tacos... I LOVE IT!! It isn't so often that you see a really creative, new idea that a family would really eat.

Omgosh, those Indian tacos look sooo good! Once we get settled I'll have to try them. Im glad you guys like the enchiladas. Were they easy to make for you?

PS- I hope you get to feeling better soon. Food poisoning is the worst!

Oh thanks for bringing back the memories. Indian Tacos...yum!!
When I was in University my summer job was working at an historic Whiskey trading post doing living history. We often make Indian Tacos for staff get togethers. Hmmmm! I am thinking I might have to put this on the menu for next week...great memories for hubby(we started dating at this job) and something new for DD.
