Last week ended up being a full-fledged “Eat From the Pantry” week. I only went to the store to get some milk and produce, which was a nice break for us. So, I am back at it again this week and I am hoping to start “lightening up” our meals a bit. I need to be looking for more fishes like tilapia and salmon, we are totaly out. Those may start popping up more on the menu if I can get some soon at a great price.
I was getting sick of the same old meals, so this afternoon I sat and enjoyed flipping through cookbooks to get ideas for this week and below is what I came up with. My friend Meredith in Atlanta, sent me a really yummy looking Shredded Beef Enchilada recipe, which is like a mole sauce that I can’t wait to try next week!
We have a lot going on this week so I will only need to make a few dinners this week.
