Favorite Things

Shredded Beef (or pork) Tacos

3 lb roast

1 lg jar green salsa

Tortillas and taco toppings such as cheese, tomatoes, lettuce and avocado

Cook the roast in your slow cooker on high at least 5 hours or on low at least 8 hours with 1 cup water.

Turn the slow cooker to off or warm, drain the water, shred the meat with forks, add the green salsa and eat immediately, or turn the slow cooker back to warm to keep it warm for later returning kids.

Cream Cheese Pasta

1 brick cream cheese (softened)

1 package shredded parmesan cheese

1 cube chicken bouillon

1 package fresh basil

1 t. salt

1 box rotini pasta

1 small red onion

2 roma tomatoes

Cook the pasta according to directions, drain and set aside (add a little oil so the pasta noodles don’t stick together)

In a blender blend the cream cheese, parmesan cheese, basil, and chicken cube dissolved in 1/2 cup water, and salt.

Pour mixture over pasta. The mixture will be thick, so don’t be worried and don’t add more liquid.

Chop the red onion and roma tomatoes and mix together in a small bowl with about a half cup olive oil and 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar. This can be used as a topping if desired. My kids don’t love the topping, but my husband and I do.

Trader Joes Orange Chicken and Rice (easiest one)

Package of frozen orange chicken from TJ’s (cheaper and more flavorful than most). Cook according to directions.

Rice (brown, white, or whatever you have on hand. You can even buy frozen rice from TJ’s while you’re there if you want to make things even easier.
