Tacos (Hard and Soft shell)
Potato Soup and Fixins . . . I'll post my favorite potato soup recipe :)
(Dave didn't get his potato soup on his birthday like I had planned -- thanks to Pee Wee Homecoming!)
As far as last week's menu, the slow cooker cheesy quesadillas was a big success with the whole family. It was really good. It would also be very good as a filling for enchiladas or for chicken tacos. The Mexican rice was also very good. All of the Ferrells enjoyed it including Shane. He ate 2 helpings of the rice. I alter the recipe a little for my younger children. I didn't use Rotel tomatoes in my recipe but used petite diced tomatoes instead. I also pureed the onions and tomatoes very fine so the boys couldn't tell it was in there. :)
The pizza casserole also passed the likeability test with the Ferrell boys. I made it without the pepperoni because I didn't have any (like I thought) so I don't know how that would have changed the dish. My sweet friend, DeAnne, made the pizza casserole for her family and they liked it as well. She froze 1/2 of it for a later date. I didn't get to try it because I volunteered to help with a church activity, and sweet Dave left it sitting out all night! But he said that he and the boys really liked it.
We are trying 2 new recipes this week. I'll let y'all know how well they turn out. Until then I will be seeing you in the grocery store . . . hopefully not with . . .
the Ferrell boys . . . . just me!
