Menu Mondays: April 23-29

With several family members having extreme health issues this past week and 2 & 3 appointments on my days off plus surgical procedures and throw in a few intense applications for assistance programs for my son and you got one major stressful week, not to fail to mention the push to get the final details done for Kissi-cat's 4th b-day party, yeah.... that was my week last week!!!

We all needed something easy and comforting for our meal time, daddy LOVES taco night-actually the whole family adores taco night and I typically can count on everyone eating and wanting seconds, we had chicken grilled tortillas last week. This week we are having beef tacos, nothing fancy, just plain homey goodness.  The cheeseburger spaghetti I didn't get to last week so it's back on the menu this week, just want to see if I want to add it to my surgery meals....Chicken paprikash is one of my all time favorites, yummy, simple and DELISH paired with eggless homemade noodles and you have a comforting simple filling meal rounded out with a steamed veggie complete delight!
