Menu Plan Monday!

So I finally get a chance to join in with Menu Plan Monday. I usually grocery shop Thurs or Fri but I just put it off this weekend! We had dinner with my folks Saturday night and then yesterday was pizza after church because R was craving it (I think he has some sympathy 'symptoms') so I just skipped my regular grocery trip. I'm totally NOT into food right now. Nothing sounds good at all. I'm eating because I'm hungry.. but that is the only reason. Thankfully I'm not sick as in.. well, you know. But I do feel yucky and I have this constant feeling of food sitting right in the middle of my chest.. no matter what I eat or when or how much! It never goes away. This lovely symptom all started a few days ago. I will say that I will take this over *the other* any day. I refuse to say the word, especially in a food post. So here is my menu, whether I like it or not... the family has to eat!
~Mexican Tortilla Pie (recipe below)
~Chicken and Biscuits (kind of like chicken pot pie)
~Potato Soup
~Spaghetti and Meatballs
(this will finally use up all of the remaining frozen meatballs!), salad
~Vegetable Beef Soup, cornbread
~Pot Roast with potatoes & carrots, some green veggie

I have never made a pot roast so this should be interesting. I'm really feeling like the only things that sound even the slightest bit good to me are things that aren't heavily spiced or in other words, are bland! Why then, you ask, am I having spaghetti and tortilla pie? Well, because I already have all of that stuff on hand.... so that's why! :)

Here is the recipe for Mexican Tortilla Pie. I'm not sure if I've shared it before so if I have, forgive me!

Mexican Tortilla Pie
3 large flour tortillas
1 can corn, drained
1 can black beans, drained

Preheat oven to 450. Spray cooking spray on a large cookie sheet. Lay one tortilla down on cookie sheet. Spoon salsa over tortilla, just like if you were spreading pizza sauce on pizza dough. Mix corn and black beans in small bowl. Spoon half of corn/bean mixture evenly over salsa. Top with cheese. Repeat one more layer and top with tortilla. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Let cool 5-10 minutes before slicing. 1/4 of the pie is a pretty decent size if you use the large tortillas. Serve with sour cream. Very easy!
