Week 4 Menu

So remember when I mentioned how this would be somewhat of a learning experience? Well note to self... 3 sort of Mexican dishes in one week is probably not the best idea! ha. Don't get me wrong, they were delish but they have gotten a little old... I will definitely have to mix it up more! 

We are stretching last week's menu into two weeks again! I'm sure this doesn't sound as good to some but it is what's working for us right now! Since Derek is down to just the one job we are trying to be more conscious of our budget and this is one area where we are really saving! (By saving I mean we are cutting our budget down by 1/3 while still managing to eat the things we like!) 

So here's what's on the menu for this week: 

Texas Tortilla Bake 
Chicken Noodle Soup
Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas
"Chicken" and Wild Rice (remember last week where I mentioned forgetting the chicken!)  
Baked Ziti

I'm already working hard on the menu for the next week or two! I'm excited because we have the Super Bowl (so at least one sweet treat for that) and I'm also taking a meal to someone so I will be able to have a meal geared for that (and dessert-my fave).  

I'm always open to suggestions and new ideas, so if you have any feel free to comment! :)

Um. . . . by any chance will you be posting your recipes? "Cause your meal plan sounds great, but how can I copy cat you if I don't know how to make it!!! I love you and I miss you and your baby cakes!
