Menu for September 20th - September 26th

All back to normal this week, the cold is finally gone. Tuesday is Mike and I's 8 year anniversary, wow! I'm trying out 3 new recipes this week, hopefully they will be worth posting. Monday night is New Orleans @ San Francisco. San Francisco is hard for me because mainly they are known for seafood, which this house does not really like. So I had to go with what else they are known for sourdough bread! Also I have begun freezing and dehydrating peaches and nectarines to enjoy over the winter, they will be gone soon.

Monday- New Orleans @ San Francisco Sourdough Bacon Cheeseburger, cumin fries
Tuesday- Happy Anniversary to me!
Wednesday- Taco Biscuit Bake, green salad
Thursday- Pork and Beans, butter carrots
Friday- Easy Chicken and Rice, rolls
Saturday- Spaghetti and Meatballs, broccoli
Sunday- Mexican Sloppy Joe's, tater tots, fruit salad

Dessert of the Week: Kids make Chocolate Cake

Spicy Swiss Steak

Not that there is anything wrong with traditional swiss steak, it is just a little bland for me. So I came up with this, The prep is quick and it is very tasty. I serve it over rice.

6 cube steaks or round steaks
1 packet taco seasoning
1 bell pepper, cut into chunks
1/2 onion, cut into chunks
1 can rotel
1 jalapeno, diced
1 can diced ortega chiles

Make It:
Lay all steaks out and season each side with taco seasoning. Mix the rest of the seasoning packet in a bowl with the other ingredients. Heat a skillet over medium high heat, spray with cooking spray, brown each steak on both sides. Spray inside of crock pot with cooking spray, spoon a small amount of the tomato mixture onto the bottom of the crock pot, just enough to cover the bottom. Place one piece of steak on mixture then spoon more on top of steak, continuing this process with all the steaks. Pour the rest of the mixture on top. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4 hours. Enjoy!
