Yesterday’s menu was delayed because my whole family came to visit and we had a blast while they were here! We went to the beach on Saturday with my mom, brother, sis-in-law, niece, and uncle and had one of the best times ever at the beach. The tide was so low, the weather was absolutely perfect, and everybody was smiling and laughing. I love days like those! Then my other brother gave us all a surprise visit on Sunday morning with his twin babies and his fiancé! We watched football together all day, Xavier showed off his bike and soccer prowess as much as he could, and we had a fab BBQ of ribs, garlic-parmesan potatoes, baked beans, watermelon, and ended the whole thing off with homemade chocolate M&M ice cream. . .yum! We had a houseful but Xavier could not have been more delighted. The last of my family left last night, so here I am getting things back in order today.
First things first, this week’s menu. . .
We have so many leftovers!!!
Wednesday: Slow-Cooker Salsa Chicken Tostadas/cilantro-lime rice/refried beans/avocado-mango salsa
I have a lot going on tomorrow with Red Ribbon Week prep and volunteering for after-school movie, so I’m throwing salsa and chicken thighs in the slow cooker to do all the work for me. I’m prepping my mango salsa in the morning with the addition of avocado. All I’ll have to do when I get home is steam the rice and make refried beans.
Thursday: Leftover Makeover--Chicken Chilaquilles/cilantro-lime rice/beans/avocado-mango salsa
I’m going to use leftover corn tortillas and chicken and layer them in a baking dish with cheese and salsa to make chilaquilles.
Friday: Parmesan Fish Sticks/mac n cheese/fruit salad
Laddie has a booth at the Del Mar Home Improvement Show this weekend, so it’s just me and the little guy for dinner. I let him pick dinner for both Friday and Saturday, and I’m actually pretty pleased with his choices. J
Saturday: Roasted Red Pepper-Tomato Soup & garlic-parmesan bread
Sunday: Homemade Pizza/salad
