Menu Monday

Monday:  Leftovers

These Cheesy BBQ Sloppy Joes are just as delicious the second time around.  I do wait until right before we are ready to eat to make the bread each time, though.  Reheated bread = sucktastic.

Tuesday:  Chicken Tortilla Casserole

I LOVE this dish.  I did a lot of prep work throughout the day so it wouldn't take as long to prepare that evening (chopping the veggies, prepping the chicken, crushing the tortilla chips) and it was super delicious.  Matt thinks it's only okay as he's not much of a tomato eater and the chopped tomatoes are not hidden in the slightest.  His plate was full of picked out tomatoes bits.  But I'm not a tomato fan myself and I think the other flavors masked it quite well.  Well enough for me to eat them without spitting them out.

I used red onion instead of a shallot as I had some leftover.  Also, I used 1 Tbsp. of the chipolte peppers in adobo sauce and that was plenty.  Perhaps even too much.  It was very spicy.  Matt and I are both lovers of the heat but these peppers are my nemesis for sure.  So be careful.  Also, I used 5 oz. of tortillas chips and about 26 oz. of chicken.  The points reflect these amounts.  Oh, and no cilantro.  Matt thinks it tastes like soap.  I know.  He's a strange, strange man.

Wednesday:  Leftovers

Thursday:  Burritos

Nothing fancy here folks.  I browned 12 oz. of lean ground beef, threw in some taco seasoning...and ta da!  Done.  We're more of a burrito family rather than a taco family so I served the meat up in soft shells.  Easy peasy!

WW Points: 8 points for 6 oz. taco meat, 3 points for 1/3 cup Mexican cheese, 6 points for 2 tortilla shells
Total meal:  17 points


We were out of town for the weekend so no cooking for this mama!

Hope y'all are having a great Monday!!
