Menu Plan...errr Tuesday?


I am ready for spring Y'all! Can I just say that after being well on the road to recovery, we all got the stomach flu. Thus, the late meal planning. Its going to be a lite one since we are not quite ready to jump into heavy dishes. I pray to the good Lord that this is our last bought of sickness...at least for a little while :) Happy Eating !!!!

Tuesday: Chicken noodle soup, yeast rolls

Wednesday: Grilled chicken strip salad with cranberries and walnuts

Thursday: Steak Fajitas, (Recipe follows) black beans and rice

Friday: White Pizza, salad

Saturday: Leftover night- If its not movin you can eat it...but mama is not cookin!

Sunday: Beef pot Roast, mashed potatoes, green beans


Steak Fajitas
1 pound lean steak, cut into strips
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 tablespoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 large onion, cut into thin strips
1 julienned green bell pepper
2 lemons, quartered
salt and pepper to taste
6 (12 inch) flour tortillas

Combine the lime juice, ground pepper and cilantro in a shallow dish. Place steak strips into the marinade and refrigerate for two to four hours.

Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add steak strips, and fry until cooked to your liking. Remove meat and set aside.

Add remaining oil and onions to the skillet. Cook over medium low heat, until translucent, stir in green peppers and steak. Squeeze the juice of 1 lemon over the top and stir. When the green bell peppers are just tender remove the pan from the heat. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve the steak fajitas with tortillas and lemon wedges on the side.

I pray it's the end of your flu too.
Next year, I'm strongly considering the shot. I got hit hard and was down for a month and 1/2.

Get well soon!
