May Menu

Here it is!

Seeing as we've had some of these meals, I'll give you our feedback!

Skillet Mac and Cheese:  everyone ate it!!!  It's a quick recipe to make, too...you can have it on the table in 30 minutes.

Bean Burritos:  The recipe I use for the beans is super basic and easy peasy (in the slow cooker)!  I add garlic powder, cumin, salt and pepper to taste.  I even squeezed in some lime seeing as I thought it needed some acid.  Make sure that you put in a little tomato and lettuce (in addition to the cheese and sour cream, of course) for some good texture.  The girls had quesadillas.

Potatoes:  The potatoes that we had with the barbecued chicken are quite possibly my favorite preparation of potatoes.  I do half butter and half olive oil instead of all olive oil.  I don't add the rosemary, because that's a bit much for my people.  I do salt, pepper, and a bit of garlic powder.  

For our Cinco de Mayo festivities, we had fajitas from The Pioneer Woman's holiday cookbook, black beans and rice (courtesy of Steph), yummy salsas made by Bri and chips, and tres leches cake.  Soooooooooo good!  Oh, and guacamole that I bought at a local Mexican restaurant.  I was going to make it, but regardless of all of the tricks I tried to get mine to ripen, they were still rocks!
