Unexpected Bounty and a Meal Plan

A few days ago we unexpectedly and happily came into the possession of a rather large quantity of cooked chicken strips, mushrooms, tomatoes, and cheese!! What a pleasant surprise! This morning I knew I needed to get to work on the chicken and use it in some dishes, so I had a mini freezer cooking morning.

The results:
Black bean and Chicken Enchiladas- a variation of this
Chicken Tetrazinni with Mushrooms
Diced Chicken and Sliced Mushrooms frozen for future projects
Pizza Crusts (1 consumed tonight, and one in the freezer for another time)
3 bags of Mojito Lime marinated raw chicken (love to thaw, cook and then use on top of salads or for tacos)

Now for our weeknight meal plan:
Monday: Pizza with mushrooms, chicken, and sun dried tomatoes
Tuesday: Mac and Jack (I book marked this recipe a long time ago and have been meaning to try it)
Wednesday: Salad with mojito lime chicken on top
Thursday: Leftovers

Today I am thankful for the bounty of the Lord!

Matthew 6:26 "Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?"

He always provides bountifully!

Care to post your Mojito Lime marinade recipe?

Hahah, I am laughing at how you "happened upon" the food . . . I'm very curious.

I'm gonna go look up the mac and jack!
