**Closed** Menu Plan Monday - Go-To Meals

**GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED** The winner will be emailed & given 24hrs to reply or a new winner will be chosen, hopefully we have a winner by Monday afternoon! GOOD LUCK



Plent of food and nothing to make... that seems to happen a lot doesn't it. Then we find ourselves running to the store to get that one missing ingredient. Yes, it happens to use to, but we try to avoid it. Our go-to pantry meals are Lazy-man Enchiladas, Taco salads and like many other Hispanic families... Rice and Beans!

So this week I want to share some Go-To Meals and a BONUS... keep reading!

Monday: Frito Pie!
Frito Pie does not have to be a unhealthy snack/ and it can be turned into a MEAL!! How? Well.... I'm sure a lot of families have potatoes laying around... so slice those up and then lay them in a baking dish with a thin layer of your favorite chili sauce sprinkle some Fritos and a layer of cheese, cover and bake at 350 for about 10-15 minutes until potatoes are cooked thoroughly.

Tuesday: Breakfast for Dinner!
You can get creative with this one! Pancakes, waffles, bacon and egg, sausage patties! Just be sure to add some veggies like mushrooms or green peppers!

Wednesday: Red beans & rice!
This is great if you have canned beans and you can add hamburger meat or sausage to make it a main dish.

Thursday: Leftovers!
I always love to recreate leftovers. One of the best things is to make it into a soup. It can be hard for most meals, especially the Frito pie, haha!

Friday: Pizza!
My local grocery store has pizza dough pouches that are very affordable. Sometimes you can grab them for $.50. And another thing you can do is think out of the box! A great pantry pizza is a Mexican Pizza... beans, beef & cheese!

You can make every recipe your own by just adding different spices. Speaking of Spices... A friend of mine is about to start a new business and needs some help! Check out my Facebook Page for info and on how you can enter HERE.

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
