Menu Week Ending September 4th

School starts this week and that means I need to put on my running shoes, literally. The garden, the pool and my yard are my exercise for the summer but once school starts, we start walking the dogs. I started at 6 A.M. today. Wish me luck!!

One goal this weekend is to get the bushes in the yard trimmed. We have not had any rain for three weeks even though the yard needs to be mowed. If I mow it now, it will burn the grass. I am on standstill for any fall planting until we have some rain. 

Last week, I had the bathroom measured so the hunt for tile, fixtures and lighting starts this week. The bathroom will be remodeled in October, so I have time to search high and low for the right pieces. 

My menu this week is sort of ordinary, I have no time to whip up gourmet food this week. But that is okay, sometimes you just lean on your old reliable recipes that don't require alot of prep time or fancy ingredients.

Chicken and Monterrey Jack Burritos
