Menu Plan Monday
I stand amazed at how fast the weeks fly by. Every week it seems like I had just posted this when it's time to do it again! This really has helped me be more organized and we are eating better! Thanks so much to the organizing junkie for hosting! Go on over and check out some other menus!

Think I'll just share that recipe now--even though spring/summer is probably not the best time to post a soup recipe. I promise that you will love it though.

Mexican Soup

1 lb ground beef (or up to 1 1/2 lbs.)

1 onion, chopped

1 can shoe peg corn

1 can yellow hominy

1 can pinto beans

1 can black beans

2 cans mild Ro-tel

1 jar (24 oz) mild Picante sauce

1 12oz can V-8

Brown meat and onion. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 1 hr (or could put in the crock pot). Serve with Frito's, sour cream, and cheese.

That soup does sound great! And I knew exactly what hankerin' meant...being from AL I've got all those terms down! LOL

I had a hankerin' for Rice Krispies today so we made some.

Okay, What is shoe peg corn??? The recipe sounds wonderful! Maybe my picky Boo would eat it since it was Mexican.

We get "hankerins" here, at least I do!

Have a great week.

I agree with you 100% ... why does it take writing a menu down on a blog to get my meals organized? Oh well, whatever works!
I almost put beans and ham too, I have a ham in the freezer begging to make beans. Maybe next week!
Your menu looks great!
