There's a restaurant in San Marcos, TX called Torchy's Tacos where I had a Baja Shrimp taco with cabbage slaw, fried shrimp, green chiles, cilantro, and poblano sauce.

I love Mandarins, despite rarely getting them. I like Grapefruits better.

I'm trying to get in the habit of constructing "make-ahead" meals! This week, I made a slow cooker jambalaya, macaroni and cheese (unfun adult type with whole wheat pasta, peas, and ground turkey), and a rice and beef casserole.

All this pre-cooking is (I hope!) going to ease my transition back to work next week after four glorious months off with the new baby.

sounds great!

you will free-up so much time doing this, at least thats the goal, right?

has it worked out?

(thanks for posting the ingredients-how long in the slow cooker?)
that mac and cheese will go in the oven at 350 for 25 minutes. Jambalaya of chicken, spicy sausage, shrimp, celery, onions, tomatoes and Cajun spices was 5 hours at low in the slow cooker.

That make ahead mac was great tonight. It was my first day back at work, baby's first day at daycare, and a generally very exhausting experience!

Gotta admit, I'm looking for ideas. I've been on the road forever and haven't had a chance to buy groceries and whatever was left if the fridge was unidentifiable.

I'm leaning toward making a batch of cheese biscuits.

got any eggs to throw into them like an egg sandwich on biscuits?

Might do fried eggs. Or an omelette if the cheese can be salvaged.
