As a busy wife, small business owner, and mother of 4 small children, I develop weekly menus to help keep myself on track. I started this blog as a way to share these menus (and some of my favorite recipes) with other busy cooks. Since my first post it has evolved into a discussion of not only food but other aspects of life. Check out my tips, recipes, and, of course, my weekly menus. I hope they are a help as you manage your own home (and life).
Today (Friday) we were invited over some friends' for an "after-Thanksgiving" game night. I ended up making a couple of side dishes instead of my planned pork loin and other dishes. I made
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (16 ounce) container nonfat sour cream 1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning mix (I made my own taco seasoning) 1/2 head iceberg lettuce, chopped 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese 3 chopped tomatoes 1 bunch green onions, chopped 1 can black olives, drained and sliced
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, sour cream and taco seasoning. Spread this mixture in a 10 inch (or larger) round serving dish. Top the mixture with lettuce, Cheddar cheese, tomatoes, green onions and black olives.
I also made Cocktail wieners (Lil' Smokies, BBQ sauce-not a vinegar based sauce, and grape jelly).
