It's been awhile, and I miss these posts.

I am making Chicken Tortilla Soup along with cheese quesadillas for the girls.



Now I have to go look for a good soup recipe. Anyone have one they would like to share?

I miss it too!

Tonight is salmon tilapia for kids since it's DS's favorite) rice and broccoli
Tomorow is steak and mac and cheese for the kids and peas. Instead of mac and cheese, DH & I will finish of the leftover samosas I made with my Indian food dinner last night.
Wed is hamburger's and french fries and corn.
That's as far as I've gotten. This is cookie baking and present wrapping week so I can get it in the mail for my family, so dinners have to be quick and easy.

A quick but tasty soup recipe that I got from Food Network -I use a can of diced tomoateos instead of whole wone to make it quicker-:

Mon - italian bread crumbs baked chicken - we call it shake n bake chicken, green beans & a fruit for the kids

Tues - deer loin cooked with mushrooms & onions, mixed veggies

Wed - leftover chicken alfredo

Thurs- Subway subs

Fri - Chili with mozzarella cheese on top

Sat - DH's choice since it's his birthday

These are my ideas. They may change nights but it's what we'll eat this week. I need to add hamburgers in there it - sounds good Vickie! - maybe Thursday instead of Subway.

Our menu is a little beef heavy ( we also ordered beef with broccoli for dinner on Saturday)-DS & I have colds and we both like beef when we're under the weather! DH will never complain about it, but DD will I'm sure!

For today we are having beef stew. It has been in the crock-pot all day.

I don't have a clue for the rest of the week.

Janine,
Have you ever made it with plain white rice? It sounds yummy but DH does not like wild rice.

I am so jealous of your Friday dinner. I'm pregnant with our 2nd child and I want sushi so bad. How do you cook your white beans and pork? I'm always searching for new recipes.

BekahS replied to VicsEandJ's response:

Does Levi eat sushi? I love sushi, but only in warm weather ( I know I'm weird but I think it's light and perfect for warm weather, but I need more in winter). DH & I always go without the kids and I was just wondering what is a good age to get them to try it. I didn't eat it until is was almost 30.
