    Hi menu pals!!! how is everyone?

    I've enjoyed having my eldest DS here this week, but he leaves Sunday afternoon for 3 more weeks. I've made a lot of his favorites this past week. But doing pizza tonite!

    I've been trying out the new meal planner this week. I'm loving it!! Have any of you tried it yet? Let me know what you think.

    Saturday - Menfolk are going fishing, so no cooking for meal, but making some things for DS to take with him to AZ.

    Sunday - Torta Asada (Mexican Carne Asada Sandwich), with Salad

    Monday - Kenyan Ground Round Curry with rice and vegies

    Tuesday - Pineapple-Black Bean Enchiladas with rice and beans

    Wednesday - Tomatillo Posole with cornbread and salad

    Thursday - Classic Baked Spaghetti with bread and salad

    Friday - leaving open for stretch!

    I have always loved chopped salads; don't know why and perhaps is just me, but i think they taste better

    this one, hot salami, feta, sun dried tomatoes, kalamata olives, finely diced lettuce, spritzed with balsamic vinegar and cracked black pepper southwest dressing!

    YUM!

    This is what 100 grams looks like (have to have each and every meal) so don't think will be wilting away anytime soon

    WHOO HOO!







    Be interesting to see which one you like more?

    Hope you have a great day!

    One of my favorites too. It's a good potluck food too.

    The flat lamb souvlaki is in the crock pot; so are the pitas. And then, the mix of tomatoes, lettuce, red onion is in a another bowl. People can just help themselves to the soft bread. Top with a couple of the meat balls, the salad, and top with the tzatziki.

    A great potluck buffet dish. With a big crock, I just wrap the wraps in foil and no need to have 2 crocks.

    Great idea to keep the pitas in the crock pot. How do you do it?

    I just wrap about 5 no more in foil. I usually set a couple foil balls right on the bottom so the wraps ... wrapped up in foil didn't set directly on the bottom. But just packages. It keeps them very moist.

    My friend, does the 2-3 foil balls on the bottom but she wraps hers in parchment. She said it works great. I haven't tried that, but I bet it would work.

    Obviously you don't do this with just 1 pkg of wraps or tacos; but works great, when you are serving 8 or so people and you you need a lot more; especially with a party when you don't want to keep reheating them. It works fantastic.

    Wasn't my idea, but can't beat it.Pot lucks, big parties, taco bar, etc, perfect.

    Gday and big thanks

    Basically it is a dump and mix type salad

    finely diced cos lettuce, feta diced small cubes, roll prosciutto (or can roll salami) and cut in fine pieces

    Kalamata olives, cut in small pieces, sun dried tomatoes...same thing

    Spritz with balsamic vinegar (i have one of those spray cans) then add 3/4 - 1 tbsp South West dressing...I like Paul Newman's and add jalapenos diced

    mix with your hands, place on the plate, photograph, eat and enjoy too! icon_smile.gif
