Busy week here — yet again. I’m playing organ for Wednesday’s Lent service, and Saturday will be ISSMA state contest for 5 kids I’m accompanying, plus my oldest daughter who is playing in a quartet. That’s down in Indianapolis, so if you think about the kids on Saturday, wish them luck. I haven’t been to state contest since 1983 when I competed on my oboe. Nerve-wracking and exciting all at once!
So, here’s the week’s Menu Plan Monday:
Monday: leftover buffet — the fridge is overflowing!
Tuesday: Tortilla Soup (an easy family favorite)
16 oz. refried beans
14.5 oz. chicken broth
5 oz. chunk chicken (I usually just cook 1 chicken breast)
15.5 oz. black beans, rinsed
3/4 cup salsa
Combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 10 min.
Crumble a few tortilla chips in the bottom of each bowl.
Ladle soup over chips and sprinkle with cheddar cheese.
It’s excellent with tortilla chips.
I usually double this, with 3 teens/tweens in the family.
Wednesday: Fish (VanKamp’s; nothing fancy) and couscous
Thursday: Fritos Pie – in the newspaper today; sounds good and really easy (kind of like nachos?)
Friday: Campbell’s Go Soup mixes are on sale at Meijer this week and they look tasty — I’ll probably make one tonight with bread machine bread. Here’s more info on them, and a $1 coupon. Have any of you tried them?
