Hello, all, and happy Monday (I think – it is probably too early to tell just yet)
After a happy, but busy, weekend, we’re kicking off the week with a countdown to spring break… the girls and I can hardly wait. Not waking up at 5 AM is certainly something to look forward to! We have not finalized our plans yet… they have changed several times in the past week or so and so I’ve just about decided to not worry about PLANS and just roll with the tide. Maybe we’ll stay home, maybe we’ll go somewhere. Just not sure yet.
Planning some grill cooking this week – the weather is so beautiful, it is hard to resist dinner on the grill. On Saturday, we cooked our entire meal on the grill. I made these yummy three-cheese potato pockets. They were so good. Although, next time I make them, I’ll probably only put the onion in the pocket for SuperMan. Too much onion for the girls and me. But yummy nonetheless.
We grilled ribs, corn (wrapped in foil and slathered with butter) and the potato pockets. It was a yummy, yummy dinner. Made especially good because there were very few dirty pots to wash. (my dishwasher is dead)
Sunday night we had guests for dinner – our friends from our Bible Study group at church. I made a nacho bar. I have to say that this is a terrific idea when you are feeding a crowd. I would think it would be great for a bunch of teens, too.
I made shredded “taco” chicken in the crock pot on Saturday and then browned ground beef on Sunday for a second crock pot-full. We had toppings galore – cilantro, onion, lettuce, olives, cheese, jalapeños, three kinds of salsa, and on and on and on. I also made a cheese dip with some Velveeta and salsa. Yeah, not the healthiest, but it sure was good.
I served this warm bean dip as a side item, but most of us just put it on our nachos. It was a huge hit (another one of my finds from Pinterest)
Everyone was able to fix their own plate of nachos to their liking. I have to say, there were very few leftovers and I like it that way!
This week I’m still working out my menu plan – so far I know we’ll be doing the following:
Monday: Creamy chicken & rice (crock pot)
Tuesday: Leftovers from Sunday – probably turned into quesadillas
Wednesday: Asian Chicken Salad (new recipe for us) – I’ll share this recipe later this week. It’s a yummy salad recipe shared by a friend. After I’ve made it, I’ll let you know all about it!
Thursday: Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak (new recipe for us) Big Girl has a doctor’s appt for her tummy so we will go with slow cooker recipes to make it easier for mama.
Friday: Pizza night
Saturday: Grilled goodness (not sure what yet)

I really need to go through all of your recipes. They all sound so good. I haven’t been making much for dinners lately since I’m at the tax office until 7:00. Everyone has eaten something by the time I get home, which is just as well because I don’t feel like making anything by that time. But once it’s over I want to start cooking again. Miss you!!
