menu plan

I am getting much better at planning our weekly menu. This past week we stuck to it & never went out...that's a big deal around here! The weather here in Franklin has been beautiful this weekend. I think we are finally through with all of that 100+ degrees nonsense. Fall is just around the corner & I can't wait to start using the crockpot for some yummy soups, stews, and pot roasts!
I have a husband to eat dinner with almost every night this week--lucky me! Here is our menu:
Sunday: chicken and spanish rice quesadillas
Monday: Beef tips over egg noodles -- loved when my mom made this when I was younger! I'm trying out a new recipe...I'll let ya know how it turns out!
Wednesday: Mexican casserole...new recipe...posted below:)
Friday: BBQ chicken pizza
Mexican Casserole
1lb ground beef
1 chopped small onion
1/2 of a bell pepper, chopped
1 can diced tomatoes (I got the ones with chiles added)
1 can whole kernel corn
1 8oz. can of tomato sauce -- I may use enchilada sauce...
2 tbsp chili powder
A few handfuls of crushed tortilla chips
Shredded mild cheddar cheese
Brown the beef, onion, and bell pepper together. Drain. In a casserole dish, combine the beef mixture, tomatoes, corn, tomato sauce, and chili powder. I may go crazy and add black beans! I live on the edge. Mix well and then bake for 30 minutes on 350. Top with the crushed tortilla chips and some cheese. Bake until cheese is all melty.

I'm shopping for art for my nursery and noticed posh tots has some super cute sock monkey prints!
