Week 12 Menu

Happy Monday! I'm starting to feel the effects from all the candy I've eaten this weekend. Maybe I should go do some sit-ups. Anyway...

For all you chicken enchilada lovers out there, I recommend trying the Chicken Enchiladas with Roasted Tomatillo Chile Salsa (from Tyler Florence's Ultimate on the Food Network). I made them last week and we really liked them. They are a nice change from the cream cheese filled chicken enchilada versions that I made way too many times when we were first married. I only made 1/2 the recipe using the bigger size flour tortillas and I'm still eating them for lunch.

Here's my menu this week:

Monday: BBQ chicken pizza

Tuesday: roast and potatoes

Wednesday: easy night, probably french toast

Thursday: french dip sandwiches

Friday: chicken manicotti

Saturday: Cafe Rio style pork tacos

Sunday: leftovers? or something in the crockpot

So, what are you making this week?

Here's a picture of my new kitchen gadget (okay, this isn't my picture, but it's the same thing). Dave bought me an apple/slicer/peeler at a garage sale on Saturday. I love it! Whenever we are at my in-laws and use theirs I always wish that I had one. The kids want to eat more apples when they are sliced in curly-q's. Anyway...Have a good one!
