Weekly Menu

Again, not very exciting, but I said I would share it every week, so I will. October is just a busy time, and we were not at home every night this week for dinner.

King Ranch Chicken

corn tortillas
2 chicken breasts, cooked and chopped OR canned chicken
shredded cheddar cheese
cream of chicken soup
small onion and 1/2 green pepper, sauteed until soft

Mix chicken, soup, some of the cheese, and pepper and onions in a bowl. Layer in a baking dish in this order: corn tortillas (tear the tortillas into strips/chunks), chicken mixture, cheese- ending on cheese. Bake for 30 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

*This is a great freezing dish. I make double and freeze half of it for a night when I need it!

Chicken quesadillas
fruit salad

frozen pizza
caesar salad

(Can you tell which two nights we weren't eating with our kids??)

*Thanks for voting on my pumpkin poll! I went to the grocery store yesterday, and remembered to get the goods for Pilgrim Pies. Coming soon!
