1. Fried Pork Chops from Six Sisters' Stuff with corn on the cob and mashed potatoes. Sometimes you just have to have a good old fashioned meat and potatoes meal. Or at least we do. (Tip: Butter the heel or a stale piece of bread to easily spread butter on corn.)
1. Chicken Noodle Casserole. This is a Rachael Ray recipe that is usually made with ground turkey. It's a favorite around my house; Aaron requests it fairly often. I had some shredded chicken in the freezer left over from another recipe, so I used in in place of the turkey. Aaron still prefers the turkey, but I think I like the chicken just as well. Jona was a fan of this one too.
3. Crock Pot Sesame Honey Chicken from Skinnytaste. Coming home to a meal that's already pretty much done is the best. This one had great flavor too! (Tip: My sister-in-law Gennie taught me a trick for shredding meat quickly and easily. Take fairly good-sized chunks of whatever meat you're shredding, and put them in the bowl of a stand mixer. Use the paddle attachment, turn it on, and in just seconds you have shredded meat! Pretty cool, right?)
4. Eating out: Mexican food extravaganza. Over the weekend we visited Los Tules and Ponak's, two of our favorite Mexican joints. Juevos rancheros at Los Tules, fried beef tacos at Ponak's. Both were equally delicious, but the showstopper was (and always is) the Ponak's margarita.
