Menu Monday

I have two words for you...Taco Cups

You have to make them.  Easy, cute, delicious, finger food.  What's not to love?

And might I add that if you are feeling particularily multi-cultural then you should also make some arroz con gandules (not our family recipe, but close enough).  Basically, you'll be making a spin on a Mexican dish (Taco Cups) with a side of Puerto Rican rice.  PR rice blows Mexican rice out of the water any day.  Even Little Man's red headed buddy threw down some platefuls of arroz con gandules.  You know if a four year old white red head likes it, you will too.  Plus you'll be representin' to Hispanic cultures on one night.  You can't really live on the edge too much. 

Now that I've spent 5 minutes of my time trying to convince you to make rice, I think I'll go ahead and share my menu that does not include Puerto Rican style rice...

Monday-Zucchini Bake, Salad, Breadsticks
Tuesday-Monterey Chicken, Steamed Veggies, Loaded Potatoes
Wednesday-Sloppy Joes, Homemade Fries, and Peaches
Thursday-Sweet & Sour Chicken with Fried Rice and Stir Fry
Friday-Chicken Bacon Cresent Ring, Carrots with Veggie Dip
Saturday-Hamburgers, Chips and Queso Blanco, Fresh Fruit Salad (Happy 3rd Birthday Little Miss!)
Sunday-Dinner @ my Mama's
