Now, on to the menu (you will see a lot of the same entrees as last week, because I purchased all of the ingredients). This week's (February 6 - 12) menu is:.
Monday: Bacon Cheeseburger Pasta, Salad
Tuesday: Chicken Taco's (crock pot), Red Rice
Wednesday: Fish and Lentil Pilaf, Vegetable
Saturday: Dad's Choice - BBQ
Sunday: Spaghetti, Garlic Bread, Salad
I didn't take any pictures last week, so, this is the Beef and Spinach Pitas from a previous menu. It is so simple, fast, even healthful, and my kids just LOVE it.
I used about 2 lbs of ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1 8oz pkg. mushrooms, sliced (I used portabella)
1 bag of spinach
thyme about 1/2 t.
Salt and Pepper
6 pitas, cut in half
1 tomato, chopped
low-fat sour cream
Cook beef and onion over med.-high heat till browned. Drain (I even rinse the beef with water to get the fat off) and blot with paper towels. Add garlic, mushrooms, spinach and thyme.
While the beef mixture cooks, cut tomato and slice pita.
Cook for about 3 min. more until spinach wilts.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Add beef mixture to pitas and garnish with sour cream and tomato.
