Fuzzy Navel with Fresh Fruit and Prosecco

Heeheehee…For some reason, the name of this drink makes me giggle. A traditional fuzzy navel has OJ and peach schnapps. I decided to change mine up a bit. I just happened to have fresh oranges and a big juicy peach. I used my hand juicer to get all the fresh juice out and combined that with about a shot of triple sec and topped off with Prosecco. Delish!

Meal Plan Sunday 7/28

Monday-Errands and out to dinner…The girls have been begging to go to Taco Mac.

Tuesday- White wine roasted chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, and peas https://funfoodiefamily.com/2013/07/01/white-wine-roasted-chicken/, I will probably do it a bit different this time, because I already have chicken breasts instead of a whole chicken.
Wednesday- Leftover lasagna from freezer, Bruschetta, salad

Thursday- Cheese bacon wrapped hotdogs

Friday- Fish and chips with broccoli

Back to school week for me, so I am trying to make this week pretty easy.

Grocery List- After I figure out what else I need to get for the week (breakfasts, lunches, etc), then I will make a master list divided up by sections in the grocery store.

White Wine Chicken- mushrooms, onion, garlic, white wine, chicken stock, carrots, celery, chicken (I already have some in my freezer)
Bruschetta- bread, mozzarella, tomato, basil,
salad stuff, croutons
hot dogs, cheese, buns, bacon,
Fish (will actually buy later in the week, so it is fresh), fries, frozen peas

What is on your meal plan? I am especially excited about hot dog night!

Pimento Cheese Quesadilla

004002

Instead of a regular quesadilla, try adding pimento cheese. This time I did not make homemade pimento cheese; I will have to add my recipe next time. I used Palmetto cheese with Bacon. Still pretty darn tasty. I also like the pimento cheese from Fresh Market.

Add a dollop of sour cream, and you have a quesadilla with a kick!

Homemade taco seasoning mix

Tonight I planned on making beef tacos with homemade taco seasoning. Have you ever read the ingredients on those package mixes from the store? Take my advice and don’t even bother. It is not good. Make your own seasoning instead. We were going to have crunchy tacos, but then my husband found some burrito tortillas and had the idea to make gorditas. Gorditas are crunchy tacos inside of a soft taco. So good!

Ground Beef with Homemade Taco Seasoning

Sautee 1/2 a chopped onion and 2 cloves chopped garlic in a bit of oil in your hot pan. Take out the onions and brown a pound of meat. Once browned, take it out and strain it. Add it back in the pan with your onions and add your taco seasoning.

Seasoning- Of course, you can always add more of less of these ingredients. I am using real sautéed onions and garlic, but you could use ground onion and garlic if you have it.
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon corn starch

Add your seasoning to the beef and about 1/2 cup water over the heat until it absorbs, about 5 minutes

Add all your fixings to your Gordita…beans, cheese, lettuce, salsa, sour cream, guacamole; whatever you like!
