She’ll be comin’ on an airplane Tuesday Mornnnniiinnnngggg

Actually she will be coming on Tuesday afternoon, but Morning seemed to flow better. EVYN IS COMING! I am so excited… She will be here for 10 days. So basically my menu plan for the week is going to be “Eat at Mom’s house with the Fam”. But just in case Evyn has other plans one night (which I am SURE she won’t) or my parents and Ev want to go for an adult only dinner (which, again, I am SURE they won’t) ;)…. I am going to have some dinner stuff on hand that won’t go bad if it doesn’t get made right away, but will make a quick meal if I have to throw it together…

PS The Spanish Chicken Rice Bake from last week was wonderful and so so easy. It will definitely be on our favorites list. It was spicy enough for Mike and I but not so spicy the kids didn’t like it.

PPS I forgot to give my mom her proper shout out last week for the beef stew recipe… The recipe should have been named “Pam Bandy’s Beef Stew that She Stole From a Friend but We Can’t Remember Who”….

Monday: Taco Soup* (with Turkey instead of beef) and Salad

Tuesday: I am going to assume that since this will be Evyn’s first night that we will be spending it with her so she can Oooo and aaaahhh over her adorable nephews!

Wednesday: Okay, this is going to sound gross, but they are SO GOOD. WF. frozen section. Crispy Battered Cod. With asparagus so we can feel healthy.

Thursday: Spooky Sandwiches (Halloween Cookie cutters on the bread….), veggies and soup

Friday: Spaghetti Dinner with the family (hint hint Mom 😉 or we can eat it out, but it won’t be as good as Moms!..)(Tulsa Run is on Saturday!)

Saturday: Happy Halloween!… Having the family to our house to grill out before we hit the streets for dessert

Sunday: Meeting my grandparents for dinner

*Taco Soup

I know everyone has a Taco Soup recipe they love! Here is mine…. Over the last couple of years, I have made  little changes to suit our tastes…

1 lb ground beef (or turkey or shredded chicken)

2 cans kidney and/or chili beans

1 16oz can corn undrained

1 16oz can chopped tomatoes

2 10 oz cans Rotel like tomatoes

1 pkg taco seasoning

1 pkg Ranch seasoning

Yum Yum!

What are you cooking this week?
