Menu Monday - Yum Recipe!

Spring Break this week! That means a busy week with the kids at home!

Monday- Frozen Pizza (I am all about easy, we are getting Kate's photo's taken by B4Photography today)

Tuesday- Jen's Mexican Lasagna, here is how I do it:
What you need:
2 cans of red enchilada sauce
1 package of flour tortilla's
1 pound ground beef
1 small can of corn
1 can of black beans
1 package of shredded cheddar cheese
Optional: diced red and green peppers
  1. Cook and drain the ground beef
  2. Return beef to skillet add corn, black beans, and peppers (I usually add garlic powder and ground cumin to season)
  3. In a 9 X 13 glass cooking pan add a little enchilada sauce
  4. Start layer with tortilla's torn in big pieces
  5. Layer 2 beef mixture
  6. Layer 3 top with cheese
  7. Layer 4 top with tortilla's
  8. Layer 5 top with enchilada sauce
  9. Continue layers until you run out of space or meat. Top the very top with tortilla's and enchilada sauce and top with cheese
  10. Cover with foil and Bake 375 for 35 minutes or until bubbly. I use a convection oven so cooking temps vary.
  11. Enjoy! We serve with chips and guacamole. This freezes really yum! I usually make a double batch and put on in the freezer.

Wednesday- Grill Burgers outside and French Fries (It is going to be 85 degrees!)

Thursday- Eating out with the kids or spaghetti and meatballs (frozen one's)

Friday- My dad is making his specialty of frying fresh fish, grilling corn and baked potato's

We will definitely be trying the Mexican Lasagna. It sounds delicious. Have a great spring break!:)

Hmm...just had a thought. Can you do a lunch version of this one day? Like lunch menu Monday? I'm generally okay with finding dinner stuff but lunch eludes me! I mean feeding her nuggets every day just doesn't sound like a good idea...

Mexican Lasagna was a hit. Even my toddler picked at it a bit and dipped his chips in it. Thanks so much for the easy and good!!
