After our missed week last week due to our busy spring weekend, we’re back sharing our menu and favorite recipes. Salsa is one of the easiest and most versatile recipes we’ve ever made. It’s basically a combination of fruits and veggies chopped and combined with spices. Why do so many people shy away from making their own? You control the quality and taste so every batch is perfect. You do not need a food processor to make salsa but it sure makes it a lot faster.

Due to the new layout, the guacamole recipe was moved.

Weekly Menu

I haven’t matched items to days again but I think this works out a little easier for us. We select the dinners and then select a few days at a time. This also allows us to use fresh veggies more often with our meals. So here’s a few meals we have picked for this week.

Sandwich (twice)

Orange chicken
Stir Fry
French Dip
