Menu Monday & Weekend Finds

I had a great mothers day! I awoke to breakfast made by my husband and kids. What a special treat! We headed off to church, the nursery was closed for mothers day. I got a little extra time with little miss who has quite the personality. She calls the cry room at our church the "snack room".

Let me share what's for dinner at our house, then keep reading for my garage sale finds:
Monday: Grilled Burritos, a big favorite in our house. Let me share....

What you need:

Big Tortilla's

Cooked Rice (I used Knor Spanish Rice)

Shredded Cheese

Black Beans (Drained and Rinsed)

Refried Beans (I used Old El Paso Fat Free)

Chicken (I used the Oscar Meyer Southwest Strips)


Sour Cream


1. Lay out the tortilla, top with refried beans smooth around.

2. Add the rice, cheese, black beans, chicken, jalapenos and anything else you want to add.

3. Fold into a huge burrito.

4. Spray with cooking spray and put on the grill. (We use the George Foreman Grill)

5. Once cooked top with sour cream and salsa.

We also add Guacamole for an extra treat!Take large tortillas fill with black beans, refried beans, shredded cheese

Tuesday: Buffalo Chicken Tender Sandwiches (we enjoyed them so much last week) Just take tyson chicken tenders in buffalo style and put on bread, top with cheese, lettuce and ranch dressing.

Wednesday:Spaghetti and Meatballs with salad and garlic bread

Thursday:Frozen Pizza

Friday: Burger and Grilled Chicken on the grill.

These are my garage sale finds this weekend. I got all these frames for $4 (all solid wood)! I plan to paint and distress. Look for the transformation this week.

I made the buritos last night and they were GREAT! I don't have a GF grill so I buttered the outsides and put them in a skillet. Delish!
