Hammy Hashbrown Casserole

1 (2 pound) package frozen hashbrown potaoes with peppers & onions, thawed

8 oz. sour cream

1 (10.75 oz.) can cream of chicken soup

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

2 cups diced ham

1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

1 cup French's fried onions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9x13 pan.

In a large bowl, combine, potatoes, sour cream, soup, cheddar cheese and ham. Gently mix and pour into prepared pan.

Bake uncovered for 45 minutes. After 30 minutes of cooking, add enough parmesan cheese to just cover the top and sprinkle the french fried onions over that. Put back in the oven and continue baking the remaining 15 minutes!

Thursday: Wild Rice Chicken Casserole, Salad, Rolls

Friday: BLT's, Mystery Soup (from the freezer), Root Beer Floats

Saturday: Chicken Fajitas, Rice

Chicken Fajitas

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

* 1 large onion, sliced

* 2 green peppers, sliced into skinny strips

* 1/4 cup salsa, or several shots hot pepper sauce

* 3/4 cup tomato juice (I prefer canned diced tomatoes for this)

* 2 cups cooked chopped chicken (I prefer strips)

* Goodly Dash Pepper

* 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon salt

* 8 small flour tortillas

* 1 cup shredded cheese (I like a colby and monterey jack blend, but cheddar works just fine)

Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the onions and peppers. Saute until he vegetables begin to become a little tender and the onions become translucent, or see-through. Add the salsa, tomato juice, chicken, pepper and salt. Stir it all up and let the tomato juice simmer a little bit. The chicken will absorb the tomato product, and the whole mixture will take on a juicy filling-like texture. Heat the tortillas by wrapping them in tin foil and placing them in the oven for about 15 minutes at 400°. Spoon the fajita filling onto the tortillas and top with 2 tablespoons of cheese. Fold in half and serve hot.

Sunday: Crock Pot Pork Chops, Steam Fresh Veggies with Potatoes, Salad, Rolls
