This week so far

Monday: Roasted Chicken, green beans, & rolls

Tuesday: Pasta w/Marinara, Chicken (leftover from Mon.), & Parmesan

Tonight: Tacos, granted there are about 1,000,000 ways to make tacos, but tonight it was "what's left in the cupboad" tacos. Here's the version I did tonight:

Meat Mixture:
1 lb ground beef, cooked & crumbled. Add 1/2 jar of salsa, 1 can of beans (drained), 1 can of corn (drained), & 1 t salt; simmer 10-15 minutes. Add a smidge of water if all the liquid cooks down, you don't want it to be dry. This eliminates steps and dirty dishes. Plus you get your veggies in w/o having to think about a "side."

Spanish Rice:
3 T Butter
1 c white long grain rice
1 t chili powder
2 t cumin
2 t chicken soup base (0r bullion)
2 c water

Melt the butter, add rice and let it brown a bit. Then add everything else, let it come to a boil. Then cover and turn to simmer for 20 minutes.

Other Ingredients:
Corn tortillas, wrapped in towl and microwaved till hot
Cheedar Cheese, grated
Sour Cream
