grandma & meal planning to the rescue

I had stew on my menu tonight, but that didn't quite work out. My meat was not getting cooked quick enough. I called my grandma all frustrated, and she came over to help!! She offered to take the meat with her and pressure cook it so we can eat it tomorrow. Thanks Nonnie!!

So at 6:00 I had to come up with a new plan for dinner. Thanks goodness I meal plan!!

I was able to whip up our Wednesday meal in no time, and still leave on time for Matt's softball game. We had Southwestern Chicken & Bacon Wraps and they were delicious.
This recipe was orginally from my friend Jodi, but I tweaked it a little bit to make it my own. We think they taste a lot like Tin Star Club Tacos.

Here is my version of the recipe....

Homemade Salsa
Mexicorn
Kroger tortillas
(Any tortillas will do, I just love these!!)
Pre-Cooked Bacon
Grilled Chicken Tenders
(I season with Fajita seasoning.)
(You can use real avocados, I just think this is easier!!)
lime juice
mayo
Fresh Cilantro

I don't measure anything in this recipe.

Stir together salsa and corn. Set aside.

Make avocado lime sauce by combining the entire Wholly Guacamole pack, a couple squirts of lime juice, a spoonful of mayo, and a small bunch of chopped cilantro. Top warm torillas with lettuce, bacon, chicken strips and top with avocado lime sauce and corn salsa.

Mmmmmm Mmmmmm Mmmmmm!!! Enjoy!!!

Thanks for sharing your recipes. I'll have to try that one. Of course, your dad won't like half the good stuff on it.
