Monday: Beef Enchiladas
Tuesday:Salsbury Steak
Wednesday: Crock Pot Roast
Thursday: Soup as a Meal
Friday :Baron of Beef (from left over roast)
Saturday: App's or Date Night
Sunday:Oriental Pork Roast

Here is the recipe for tonight and enjoy. Easy to do and there should be leftovers for you to freeze. Not every recipe that I suggest you are going to like so when you have leftovers in the freezer that is when they will come in handy.


A hearty serving of Tex-Mex food. These enchiladas are a flavorful combination of ingredients and a rich homemade sauce.


1 lb ground beef
1 cup (8 oz) 4% cottage cheese
1 can (4-1/4 ox) chopped ripe olives, drained (optional)
2 Tbs minced fresh parsley
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
8 flour tortillas (6 inches)


1 med onion chopped
1/2 med green pepper chopped
1 Tbs vegetable oil
1 can (15 oz) tomato sauce
1 can (4 oz) chopped green chilles(optinal they are good just get the mild if you do not like hot)
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 cup (4 oz) shredded cheddar cheese

In a skillet, brown ground beef. Drain.Combine with cottage cheese, olives, parsley, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
Place about 1/3 cup filling on each tortilla, roll up.
Place tortillas, seam side down, in an ungreased 13x9x2 baking pan
I like to pour just a little bit of milk over top just so the tortilla shells do not dry out while cooking
For sauce, saute the onion and green pepper in oil until tender over med/hi heat. Add tomato sauce, green chiles, chili powder, sugar and garlic powder. Pour over tortillas.
Cover and bake @ 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Remove from oven after 30 minuets and sprinkle with cheese and return to oven for 5 minutes or until cheese melts.
If you would like to add a side dish I would recommend a coleslaw. You can buy already prepared coleslaw in the produce section. I like to use my food processor (best kitchen utensil ever) to make the coleslaw smaller and then I shred up some carrots (you can use your grater if you do not have a processor)and add to the coleslaw. In the salad dressing department they have cole slaw dressing and voila you will have a nice side dish for your enchiladas..

Well talk to you tomorrow and to my Family do not forget that you are to have me your Christmas lists today ...
