Our menu this week is a little different. I'm excited to offer my family a Mexican style dinner one night and then on another night, Dave and I plan to go out to a restaurant here in town. The girl upstairs has graciously said she will watch them for a couple hours. Wow! I'm excited! The kids will enjoy pizza that night.
As for the Mexican dinner, I think I am just as excited about that! I made some pinto beans, and then I am going to mash them real well and add a little salt and a little (not too much) water. We have finally found some fresh peppers (although not jalapeno, but spicy) and we brought some cumin and cilantro seasoning from the States. We can buy crushed tomatoes, onion and garlic at the store. Combine all of this and we should have a nice salsa. I have found something very similar to a tortilla, so we will have bean burritos and chips and salsa! Yum!
On the dinner menu this week:
- Bean Burritos, chips and salsa, salad
- Minestrone Soup with bread
- Fish, steamed vegies
- Pasta with Vegies
- Pasta Bianca
