    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-:

    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!

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

    j9ween3 replied to VicsEandJ's response:
    Vics, no I haven't but you can't even taste the 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:
    Tonight was spaghetti. Tuesday: beef vegetable soup in the crock pot. It will be a long day at work. Wednesday: chicken breast breaded with italian bread crumbs. A vegetable. Thursday: blacks beans and rice. Topped with tomatoes Friday: I haven't thought that far out
    VicsEandJ replied to Iocasta'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.
