|The strawberry crisp from Sunday night - quick, easy, and delicious!|
I had a culinary success on Sunday. Spur of the moment, I decided to invite the extended family over for dinner. I made meatloaf, baked sweet potatoes and regular potatoes (which we ate topped with cottage cheese and pepper), and my brother-in-law made his delicious garlicky green beans. For dessert, I made strawberry crisp. Both the meatloaf and the strawberry crisp got rave reviews! Few things makes me so happy as people enjoying food that I have prepared.
For this week, here is the menu plan - mostly taking it easy and trying to keep things clean:
Monday: beef fajitas
Tuesday: ham and cheese roll-ups (sandwiches in a tortilla instead of bread)
Wednesday: leftover baked potatoes and sweet potatoes, meatloaf (again! It was that good!), green beans
Thursday: taco soup OR taco salad (depends on whether I get lettuce and tomatoes in my produce box on Thursday)
Friday: homemade pepperoni and pineapple pizza (sauce and cheese are in the freezer and I intend to make extra crusts to freeze) and a green salad or crudités
Saturday: pulled pork sandwiches from the freezer
