Making It Up... for the most part!

Favorite meal last week!? Veggie Fajitas! They were awesome!! I stir-fried my bell pepper strips with some olive oil, garlic and red onion. Once the veggies were softened, I added a can of pinto beans, tabasco sauce and salt & pepper! That's all folks!! I served it on a corn tortilla with cheese and sour cream... they were SOOO tasty!! I had some Fajita Seasoning in my pantry that I meant to use, but totally forgot about it. Turns out, I didn't even need it!! Easy Breezy!

Here is my menu for this week:
Spaghetti. Not very exciting, but hey, you gotta have one of those every now and again!! Plus, you can never go wrong with spaghetti!! I'll serve it with some leftover Texas Toast that I have from my Bacon, Tomato and Cheese Toasts!

...A thought... I'll make it exciting by using some leftover Penne pasta I just found in my pantry!!

Twice Baked Potato. I'm going to go off the top of my head on this one! I'll bake my potatoes (extra baking potatoes leftover from last weeks Cheddar Topped Shepherd's Pie) in the oven. I'll scoop out the "meat" of the potato, mash them up with sour cream, cheddar cheese, butter, salt and pepper, throw in some broccoli florets (so we get our veggies), top it off with some more cheddar cheese and finally throw it back in the oven to melt and brown the cheese topping. Sounds good to me!! I'll be sure to add a side of fruit salad to this one!!

BBQ Chicken. Um... let's call this "Making It Up Week". I have 4 bottles of BBQ sauce in my pantry!! And I scored Chicken Leg Quarters for $0.77/lb. a few weeks ago!! So why not throw my Chicken in the Crock Pot with some BBQ sauce and let it cook for a few hours!!? Sounds great! Asparagus baked in the oven with olive oil and salt/pepper and some dinner rolls sound like a great side!!

Hot Dogs. Another TOO easy meal! They were BOGO at Von's and I had a Qpon on top of that. Would you like Sweet Potato Fries with that?

Stuffed Red Peppers. Paula Deen anyone? This recipe is one of our favorites!! It is so yummy and I can't wait to have it!! Note: I substitute the pork with extra beef.

As Paula says, "Best Dishes to You!!"
