Menu Plan, 10/13

Feeling rather adventurous this week… all of the included links (except for the taco soup leftovers) are yummy looking new-to-me recipes! 

Sunday, 10/12

  • waffles, sausage, eggs
  • leftovers (taco soup, burritos)
  • stuffed shells, green beans, garlic bread — The shells were tasty and easy to prepare.  I’m excited to have another meatless entree to add to our menu, but they sure would be good with some beef or sausage, too!

And just about an hour ago, I pulled a Chocolate Chip Cheesecake out of the oven!  Laura made me do it… she’s having a pie recipe contest over at Heavenly Homemakers and I’m tellin’ ya right now, this is a winner!  (My husband was so sad  *cough* that I had to make his very favorite dessert.  And it’s not even our anniversary… or Valentine’s Day… or his birthday!)  I’ll post the recipe Wednesday.

Have a great week!  If you need more menu inspiration, head on over to OrgJunkie (but not until Monday morning.  Laura’s busy celebrating Thanksgiving with her family!)

Soup’s On! Taco Soup

Life as Mom is hosting a soup recipe swap today.  Taco soup is my contribution.  We love this stuff!  It’s a snap to throw together in the morning and smells so good simmering in the crock pot all day.  Oh, and it’s healthy! 

Taco Soup

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1/4 c. chopped onion
  • 1 (16 oz.) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (16 oz.) can kidney beans – no need to rinse
  • 1 (16 oz.) can corn – don’t drain
  • 1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce
  • 1 can Rotel (diced tomatoes with green chilies)
  • 1 pkg. taco seasoning

Brown the ground beef and onion.  Mix together with all other ingredients.  Simmer at least 1 hour, or all day in the crock pot!  I like it best served with cheese, sour cream, and corn chips on top.  So much for my healthy soup!

Head on over to Life as Mom for more soup recipes.  Add one of your own!
