Before I post my menu for the week, I want to share with you one of my favorite things to buy at Sam's Club. It is this huge tub of...
GREEN CHILE! We've lived in New Mexico for four years now, when we moved here I bought the little 4 oz cans of green chili. About a year ago I started buying green chile frozen in 16 oz containers from at Smith's. Then I noticed that they sell 56 oz containers at Sam's Club!
I defrost the chili enough to break it apart, separate it into ice cube containers, refreeze, then break into cubes and store in the freezer in a ziploc bag. Whenever I need green chili for salsa, enchiladas, etc. I grab a couple of cubes and defrost. Someday I want to buy a 10 lb bag of chilies in the fall and freeze them. I love the smell of roasted green chilies... I'm making myself crave a green chili bagel.
All right, enough of the chilies (did you notice I can't decide how to spell chile/chili?). Now onto my menu for the week:
Monday: grilled chicken wrap w/tomatillo sauce (from my Jan edition of Everyday Food)
Tuesday: broccoli cheese soup, 5 minute artisan bread
Wednesday: pizza using 5 minute artisan pizza dough
Thursday: crockpot chicken stroganoff w/whole wheat egg noodles
Friday: meatball sandwiches
Saturday: easy night, or tacos
Sunday: white chili
All right, that's what I'm making. What's on your menu this week? Maybe you're not having Mexican food for half of your week like I am. Can you tell I need some more menu ideas? Have a good week!
