Last night we had take out pizza with garlic bread ...it was so good! Why does food made by someone else always taste better than when I make it?

Today I'm making a cheese and bacon pasta bake dish, with a salad.

Very odd - I thought I posted earlier but I can't find it in either thread. I reported that we were going to make Thai sweet potato salad with chicken, but it was too hot to cook the sweet potato. We marinated the chicken in balsamic vinegar, orange juice and oregano, grilled it and served it on a green salad. Tasty, but not as tasty as the sweet potato salad :-(.

It's still hot, so probably salad again tonight.

T-Bones I'm going to make some ham and cheese triangles (with puff pastry) here in a bit, so we'll snack on those, too.

Tonight I'm making steak, something with potatoes (maybe mashed?), and broccoli w/cheese. Probably salad, too. We are going to Chuck E Cheese to meet up with people, but no one actually likes the pizza there, so I'm cooking first.

I had planned to make a stir-fry but it is over 100 degrees today and way too hot to turn the stove on for any length of time.

So, I made a quick grocery run and picked up a rotisserie chicken at Publix. With it, we will have steam in bag(microwave) veggie rice, corn on cob, and a green salad.

I made the best quesadilla's the other night with left steak taco meat, and pickled onions from the night before. So, it was cheese, steak, pickled onion, and fresh cilantro, with another corn tortilla on top. I then topped them with sour cream and salsa. My picky three year old actually ate a whole one! They were amazing!! I love Mexican food!

I changed up the menu plan to accommodate the heat wave we are having.

Tonight:

Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Pork Enchiladas
Black beans/rice


Tomorrow: I'm working a 12 hour shift so DH is in change

Grilled Chicken Caesar Salads
Fruit Tray

Sunday: Another 12 for me so it's take out pizza from a local place.

After the family spent 3 hours picking 30 lbs of blueberries, I couldn't resist the temptation: we had blueberry banana bread and blueberry crisp for dinner! My family loves me.......and I only feel a tad bit guilty!
