post #10 of 27
August 7th revise: We have way too few leftovers (they loved my plan and devoured it-- yeah!) so I'll have to roast a chicken for tomorrow night, I guess. It's a good thing too, since last week I had to toss two things: a double batch of greek mini-pizza muffin (I think the tomato paste had gone bad--ew!) and a potato salad with vinaigrette instead of a mayo dressing which I thought was great, but forgot about the rest of it in a container in the back of the fridge. (DH said "It's not a potato salad if it's not creamy." My response? If potatoes are the main ingredient, it is a potato salad!)

Black Bean Tacos?

Can you tell about that? How you fix them and so on? I've only done tacos with ground beef or chicken. We do refried beans on the side and once in a while "inside" the taco but not used black beans before. I'd love to hear more.:

Black bean tacos: I either use a can of refried black beans and spread them inside the taco shell (like you would in a burrito) or mix a can of whole black beans with some Boca crumbles and taco seasoning (we're veg) and use that for the tacos. Hope that helps!

Funny, because we didn't end up eating them last week, so they're going on this week's menu!

8/16: Homemade mac and cheese, steamed green beans, raw veggies
8/17: Chik nuggets, fries, watermelon
8/18: Tofu salad sandwiches, corn on the cob, fruit salad
8/19: Spaghetti, salad, garlic-cheese biscuits
8/20: Black bean tacos
8/21: Veggie Pizza and salad
8/22: Spinach cheese ravioli, whatever veggies we have left
8/23: working at the state fair....so, cheese curds and mini donuts!
