I made them into a sort of casserole. I think the only way to make this a perfect meal would be a nice salad to go with. ;)

Plus it helped me use up the last of my salsa(I'm out of chips anyway- lol), and the last bits of shredded taco cheese. I think after I eat dinner, OI will work on the comin week's meal plan and my grocery list. Anyway, just had to share. ;)

That will be 2 years early on his car. We have cut our spending back alot and using what we have on hand or borrowing from friends.

DS has been taking them in his lunches because he is trying to save money by not eating out so much for lunch. He needs to get a different car. One that is more reliable. He also has bills to pay off. He wants to go on vacation to Hawaii in October. DH finished off the enchilada casserole last night, DS and I had leftover pulled pork. The rest of the pulled pork will be frozen tomorrow. We used up part of a cantaloupe, half a dozen eggs, and pound of bacon for breakfast this morning.. less
