On the Table

It's Tuesday! Here's what's on our table this week...

Yesterday was a eat-on-the-go kind of day. I whipped into Kroger and picked up some Applegate Farms corndogs and Simple Truth (Kroger's organic brand) tater tots (because who can eat a corndog without tater tots?), picked up Carleigh from school, picked up Luke from UIL practice (he made the Number Sense Team!!), ran home to throw the tots and dogs in the oven, set the auto bake timer (coolest invention EVER), dropped him off at gymnastics, came back home, fed the girls and myself, boxed Luke's dinner to go, picked up Luke, and went to the ladies section rehearsal for our church choir Christmas pageant. Man, I'm thankful for corndogs and tater tots!

It's Taco Tuesday around here today. We're having Wonton Tacos. They are sooo good! Pop some wonton wrappers (I find them in the produce section near the tofu and other meatless products) in muffin tins. Brown some meat, add your favorite taco seasoning. Fill each wonton muffin with meat, top with cheese, and cook at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the wonton wrappers are brown and crisp. They are so, so, so good! Top with your favorite salsa or guacamole or both. Easy peasy and the kids LOVE them.

Chicken pot pie (bahk, bahk!) Don't you just love chicken pot pie? I do. This is a good recipe, but make it easy on yourself. Use rotisserie chicken and pie crusts. Lay one in a pie dish, fill it with chicken filling (I use about a cup or so of frozen mixed veggies), add another pie crust. Cut some slits in the crust to vent, then pop it in the oven. Of course, you can make your own pie crusts, which I'm sure is superior and full of awesomeness, OR just buy them at the store. I wish our local grocer carried Immaculate Baking Company's pie crust. They are yummilicous without all the gross stuff.

Meatloaf muffins for Luke. He loves these things. I'll probably cook some green beans to go with them because that just sounds good...maybe some mashed potatoes too. We'll see. I haven't tried this recipe, but I'm sure it's good. I couldn't find the one I was looking for. I thought I saved it, but I guess I was wrong. That never happens. (bwahahaha)

Yoyo or pizza

Creamy Pasta with Veggies this is a recipe of Bev's. If you've never read her food blog, go ahead, I'll wait. She is hilarious! I always go away smiling after reading one of her recipes. I thought this one would be a win...pasta for my pasta-loving kiddos, and veggies, because they need them.

I'm making the dern stew I've been talking about for the past couple of weeks, dang it! :) I love Sarah. She seems so real. Hoping to get this baby cooking in the slow cooker on slow and low the night before so we can dig in after church.

So, tell me, what's on your table this week? I leave you with this, because she's so darn cute, I mean scary!
