Menu Plan Monday ~ September 22

Oatmeal, homemade granola, eggs w/ toast, & whole-grain waffles

Frozen leftovers, Roast beef & blue cheese wraps, soups, & sandwiches


Tuna Casserole

Tuesday- Cheesy Chicken & Salsa

Wednesday- Spicy Green Bean Stir Fry with Brown Rice (Family Fun October 2008)

Thursday- * Fajitas * (This is our family favorite.)

Friday- Turkey Chili and Corn Bread

For the fajitas I use Trader Joe's-Pollo Asado. I have a fajita grill that I use, but you can use a grill pan or a regular grill. I grill the chicken for about 4-5 min on each side. Then I remove the chicken and start grilling one red bell pepper cut into strips and 1/2 to 1 whole onion sliced into half circles. Slice the chicken into strips while the peppers and onion are cooking. Remove peppers and onions after they are done and serve.

To serve: We warm the small fajita or soft taco tortillas. Then we pile the chicken, peppers, onions, cheese, sour cream and guacamole on the tortilla.
