Week of March 22nd

Sorry this is late, but this is what dinner looked like this week...

Dear Husband,
I've gone out of town. There are leftovers in the fridge and don't worry none of it will kill you, I cleaned it out last week or the week before. (I can't remember)
There is also frozen pizza. I'll be home Saturday night, we will be having leftovers on Sunday also. You will probably really appreciate me next week.

Love you!

I Owe Ya'll Some Recipes

Chicken and Squash Casserole- (for Erika)
Cube chicken and cook in butter with onions. Add chopped green chile and simmer for 3 minutes. Add cut up yellow squash and cover to steam for 2 minutes. Line bottom of pan with cooked rice, then cream of mushroom soup (undiluted), then the chicken/chile/squash mixture. Top with cheese and bake until heated through.

Flat Enchiladas- (for Wendy)
Tortillas: 1 cup of Masa (used for tamales), 1 tsp salt, water to moisten
Mix together and roll into balls (approx. 2" in diameter)
Flatten in tortilla press or between 2 plates
Fry in oil
Meat Mixture: 1-2 lbs ground beef browned
Add tomato sauce and seasoning (chili powder, cumin, garlic, salt and pepper)
Simmer while preparing tortillas and toppings
Toppings: Shredded lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, olives, green onions, sour cream, avocado... Pretty much anything you want!
Layer tortilla, then meat mixture and top it off.

Mongolian Beef- (for Jan)
Tastes just like Pei Wei's Mongolian Beef, got the recipe from recipezaar
