Menu Monday

This morning I prepped everything for supper tonight, so all I had to do was grill the chicken, saute the veggies, and warm the tortillas.
Monday - chicken fajitas, homemade refried beans
Fajita marinade (printed from Allrecipes in 2001):
1/4 Cup lime juice
1/3 Cup water
2 TBS. olive oil
4 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tsp. soy sauce
2 dashes liquid smoke
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper (this time I used a dried chipotle pepper instead)
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
Mix all ingredients in a zipper bag. Add meat and store in refrigerator overnight, or at least 2 hours. I've used this with beef, chicken, and shrimp.

Tuesday (Fat Tuesday) - whole grain pancakes, scrambled eggs, sausage patties
Wednesday - Cube steaks w/ onion gravy, baked potato, green salad, ciabatta buns
Thursday - Spaghetti w/ meat sauce, steamed broccoli, mandarin oranges, garlic bread
Friday - Homemade mac 'n cheese, grilled chicken, green beans, pears
