Week 51 Menu and Corn Masa Flour Recipes

I've been spent a lot of time in the kitchen this week when the baby has been sleeping and the kids are playing. I bought a bag of masa corn flour the other day and tried two recipes with it. I thought I'd share some of what I've made:
  • Soft Wrap Bread -- really yummy wraps (like a thick tortilla) that we ate with chicken salad inside. The kids ate theirs with ham, cheese, and ranch dressing inside. I was disappointed that I didn't make enough. I didn't get one for lunch the next day.
  • Tamale Griddle Cakes -- The kids ate theirs plain. We ate ours with shredded pork, salsa and guacamole on top. Yum!
  • I made some homemade corn tortillas (using the recipe off of the masa bag). They weren't very flavorful, so I sprayed them with cooking spray, sprinkled them with salt and baked them until crisp. My 5 year old gave me thumbs up -- she loved them dipped in salsa and also plain.
  • I also made three different batches of my favorite rolls -- Cloud Light Crescent Rolls. I've posted the recipe before, but if you haven't tried them, you should. They are delicious!
All right -- now time for my menu for this week. Last week was a little crazy and I didn't stick to my menu all the way. We'll see what this week brings:

Monday: taking dinner to the sister missionaries -- one is sick, poor girl -- maybe I'll make chicken noodle soup with homemade noodles and fresh bread.

Tuesday: girl's night out -- easy night for the rest of the family, maybe french toast

Wednesday: crockpot white chili, cornbread muffins

Thursday: freezer pasta dinner

Friday: Swedish meatballs, boiled red potatoes w/IKEA gravy

Saturday: pepperoni pizza rollup

Sunday: grilled steak, rice

Thanks to Maggie, Meagan & Laura for posting their recipes last week! You guys are great! I shared my menu, now go ahead and share yours. Have a good week! Check back soon for the sweet treat that I promised last week (sorry!).
