Menu Monday

  I had trouble this week coming up with food ideas.  Some weeks are like that for me.  I think I tried so many different foods this winter, my family wanted down home and casual.  Last week chicken rice casserole went over great, so did breakfast. 

So this week I am trying to be "American" in my food choices.  Which is kindof funny because I have Mexican, Italian, and Irish on my menu.  But that is truly AMERICAN.

Mon.--Chipotles Barbacoa Beef with Cilantro Lime Rice---oh my goodness--my favorite Mexican restaurant ever.  I first ate at this place a couple of years ago in Dallas.  Some wonderful Texas ladies took me and no when I think of Mexican,  my heart goes there.  I can hardly eat anywhere else. 

Tues.--Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo with salad and homemade bread sticks.  I was having a difficult time coming up with menu items this week so I let kids pick.   They like pretty fancy food. 

Wed.--We have some wonderful long time friends coming over so I will be making Corn Beef and Cabbage with green beans,  rolls, and my Mamma Nell's pound cake.  Yum!

Thur.--Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad

Fri.--Scrambled Eggs,  Sausage,  Muffins

Sat.--Pizza Calzones with raw veggies

Sun.--Family gathering so menu to be announced.

That's it for my week.  It looks to be full.
