Menu Monday September 26

Last week ended with my baby turning one!  Where did the time go?  It just flies by.  I am now blessed to have three beautiful and healthy children.  They are truly a gift from God.  

Last week's meals went well.  The Pizza Bread and the Tutti Fruity Chicken Kabobs are a family favorite.  My mom's Chicken Pot Pie is always a great meal.  I tried two new recipes last week.  The Navajo tacos and the Crock pot Chicken Tortilla Soup have both been moved to Family Favorites.  They were both out of this world.  I loved the Navajo bread to eat the tacos on.  My little beanes still eat tacos best with Frito Scoops.  It is just sort of a messy meal I guess.  But all three ate the meat mixture and they all three ate some of the bread.  They just ate it separately.   String Beane helped roll out the Navajo bread and he was very excited to have me and Mr. Homegrown eat his cooking. 
I also tried Crock Pot Chicken Tortilla soup.  Wonderful!  I had no expectations of this one.  I mostly made it because I had all the ingredients on hand.  It is a thinner soup than I normally am drawn to.  I was so surprised when I took a taste.  It is the best soup I have ever made.  Everyone loved it.  I mostly just served up the 'stuff' from the soup to the little Beanes.  They all ate it.  I was so surprised. The only adjustment to the original recipe that I made was that I cut my tortillas in strips and fried them.  Those were a hit too.  I highly recommend this soup!
