Week 261 Menu

Hi friends!

Last week was our first week back to school after Christmas break.  It was a good reminder of why I usually try to have dinner ready before the kids get home from school.  We don't have much time between school and after-school/evening activities.  Life is much better, happier, smoother, less chaotic, etc. if I'm not frantically trying to make dinner after school.  Then I can focus on the kids and hearing about their day, helping them decompress from school, start on their homework, etc. 

We had a few unplanned easy meals last week, like pancakes, breakfast burritos, and french dip pitas.  I'm hoping that I've planned this week's menu a little more realistically.

I'm excited to have Navajo Tacos this week.  It's been a while since I've made them.
They're one of the few "fried" recipes that I make (where I fry something in oil).  Orange chicken is our other special, favorite fried recipe. 

Thanks to Julia & Meagan for posting your menus last week.  I have the sweetest friends/family who humor me by posting their menus. :)
