Food Storage Round Up : Week One

On the menu this week?

Crock Pot Black Bean Chicken Burritos
Salsa Chicken
Oven Omelet (we're doing a 1/2 recipe)
Spaghetti with Meatballs and Butterhorn Rolls
Red Curry Pork
Cajun Chicken

A couple of these don't need a separately posted recipe, they're so easy:
Spaghetti sauce - I make my own by heating a 15 oz can tomato sauce, 2 T brown sugar, 1/4 c Italian seasoning in a sauce pot. To make it chunky you can add a can of petite diced tomatoes or fresh tomatoes.

Salsa Chicken - Dump a jar of salsa into a deep pan with thawed chicken breasts and simmer until the chicken is cooked and the salsa is reduced. Serve with rice or quinoa. (I know I was supposed to make Beef Enchilada Casserole today, but more tortillas don't sound good to me. Good thing this menu is flexible!)

Cajun Chicken - We have a jar of Cajun spices that I'm going to rub all over thawed chicken and we're going to grill it on the BBQ. I'll probably make a canned-fruit "salad" to go with it.

I left myself the option to choose the red or green curry on Friday and decided red sounded better, but I've still posted my green curry recipe if you're interested!


  1. YUM! Way to go. You are amazing!!! :-)

  2. I LOVE the salsa chicken! Especially with Costco's organic salsa...yummy! Maybe we'll have that for dinner tonight ;)

  3. NICE!!! My mouth is watering for Bean Chicken Burritos, and it's only 8:00 in the morning.

  4. Ooh, these recipes look yummy! I am def going to have to try them out this week.

  5. Jessica:

    It was so wonderful to meet you at Jesse's wedding shower. You are truly a delightful and most pleasant person. I also see from your blog that you are major organized one, too. That must be why you studied accounting. I hope to check up on your blog fairly often. Please know that I am praying for the safe delivery of James and that sweet Lily adjusts well to her new brother. God keep you in His perfect peace. Pat White alpatusa@gmail.com
