Today marks Cinco de Mayo (as opposed to yesterday which was May the Fourth Be With You). As a result (and since Josh did not ask to offer any input), we will be celebrating Cinco de Mayo a few times this week. (Tex Mex and Mex are not Josh’s favorite ethnic varieties.)
Whereas I could probably eat some form of Tex Mex (because there are so many varieties and dishes) or even Cali-Mex every day, three meals a day, for the rest of my life and be okay. My last trimester of pregnancy with Muffin I consumed Tex Mex three times a day pretty much every day (consuming leftovers for lunch and breakfast).
I think it’s important to recognize ethnic holidays in the meal plan, even if you are not of that ethnicity (and especially if it involves Mexican food or Tex Mex food).
Sunday (yesterday): grilled hamburgers and corn
Monday (today): tacos; avocado slices with salt, pepper, fresh lemon juice, and fresh lime juice; something resembling sangria
Tuesday: nachos with leftover taco stuff (or canned chili)–Muffin has his 4-year checkup Tuesday!
Wednesday: brinner (with dry-pan-fried ham and 2-Minute Frenchy Toasty Bread Pudding)
Thursday: The Slow Roasted Italian’s Best Ever Grilled Margarita Chicken, chips and salsa (leftover avocado fun if there are any left from Monday-Tuesday)
Friday: something pizza related
Saturday: Crock Pot Honey Garlic Chicken, rice, veg
Sunday: A roast of some kind, black eyed peas (from frozen), other veg, and bread of some kind
There, that’s three dishes! I probably couldn’t have gotten away with four; Josh would have gotten suspicious.
As usual, I will be linking up with OrgJunkie’s Menu Plan Monday.
What’s on your menu plan this week?
