Ready to shop this week’s best sales?  I’m loving all the baking supplies on sale.  I’m fully stocked up now on flour and sugar – bring on the treats!  And, once again, I’m also working on clearing out the freezer –way too much food in there!  The joys and pains of a deep freezer!

Here are some menu suggestions:
Main Dishes

  • Beef & Veggie Stir Fry – This is the only stir fry that I make just because we love it.  I reduce the amount of steak that I use and increase the veggies, but I love it.  You will do!
  • Chicken Pot Pie – What a wonderful meal for cold weather!  Warm your bellies and your kitchens.  Pie crusts are on sale and this is a great use for them.
  • Roasted Chicken – Make a chicken. Or two!  Use some for a meal and use any leftovers for future meals.
  • Sausage Breakfast Casserole – Did you pick up some of the breakfast on sale?  Have breakfast for dinner with this casserole.
  • Slow Cooker Chicken & Wild Rice Soup – Great time for soup – try this one!

Got M&Ms?  Got chocolate chips?  Make these cookie bars!  It’s essentially a chocolate chip or M&M cookie in bar form.  Perfect for topping with ice cream!

cookie bars

2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt

  3. Gradually beat in dry ingredients.

Favorite Holiday Recipe – Tortilla Roll Ups!

Just like the Ranch Snack Crackers, these guys are great at all kind of events that usually surround the holidays.  Maybe you’ve just eaten a big ham dinner the day before and want something small for lunch.  Maybe you’re looking for a simple appetizer for a New Year’s Eve party or even a Mexican Fiesta!  This could be it!

These are simple – as simple or complex as you want to make them.  And let me tell you, I go pretty simple on them.  But I’ve included optional ingredients that you can also use – just depends on your tastes!  These also are a timer saver because they’re best (I think) when made the day before or earlier in the day.  Just a little preparation saves you a lot of panic!

And they’re great because you can make as many or as few as you want.  Just want 1 for yourself?  Cool!  Need to feed 50 people?  Cool!  Whatever you need!

Tortilla Roll Ups

Tortilla Roll Ups

Ingredients:
Tortillas
Cream cheese
Garlic powder
Salsa (as mild or as hot as you want!)
Cheese (I think finely shredded works best and you can try different flavors – cheddar, taco, monterrey jack, etc)
Optional – chopped black olives, green chiles or chopped jalapenos

Directions:

  1. On a tortilla, spread a light layer of cream cheese.  You might be tempted to go too full, so for your first roll up, go LIGHT until you know how full you’re making them.
  2. Lightly sprinkle some garlic powder on top.
  3. Spread some salsa on top.  Again, a little goes a long way.
  4. Optional – spread black olives, green chiles or jalapenos on top as well.
  5. Spread some cheese on top.  Little bit!
  6. Roll it up.
  7. Cut into slices.  Maybe 4-5 per roll up.
  8. Refrigerate for a couple of hours or longer.
  9. Eat!
