Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with Taco & Nacho Night

Taco Night

With Cinco de Mayo being this week, guest poster Kim Bergeron of Extreme Coupon Professors bring us some Mexican flair to add to May’s meal plan.  Here’s what she has to say:

Am I the only one who goes to a restaurant, reads the menu and says, I’m going to try making this next week?!  Well, once in awhile I do and with great success when the family loves what I bring to the table.

This week we brought our taco dinner up a couple of notches. We do have a large family, so quite often we need triple the amount. I came across taco casserole kits, which comes in handy on a busy night, but I wanted to add more to the table.

Recently, I was away in Mexico and had shrimp salsa. I had it twice a day, it was so amazing. Tonight I picked up a mild salsa seasoning packet and mixed it in a bowl with 4 chopped tomatoes and 1/4 of cup of red onion.( I can’t wait for summer garden tomatoes!) I added 1 cup of cooked medium shrimp to the mix. I sliced up an avocado and served a bowl of multi-grain scoops to go with the shrimp salsa. YUM! I was back in Mexico.

Chicken Nachos

One night I was able to meet a friend for dinner and we had chicken/feta nachos. Perfect for me to add to my taco night and it’s a huge favorite. I make the basic nacho which consists of the chicken, cheddar cheese and feta. Everyone has different likes and dislikes so I offer the black olives, peppers and onions on the side for anyone to add. It was a nice change-up and everyone enjoyed it!

As always, tweak the recipe to your liking! Use ground turkey, sliced steak tips, and/or ground chuck. Something so simple, changes the menu and you don’t feel like you’re having the same thing all the time. There is no right or wrong.

I have a couple other easy Mexican recipes that I like. One of them is from the Food Network site here!  I often like to have a side of rice and have found this recipe super easy and quick.

Recipes are endless, but I really have been enjoying looking at restaurant menus and seeing what I can put together that is easy and tasty!

Next week on our menu we’re having a Pizza Bar night! I’ll have to share that with you next time! It’s fun and everyone can have their favorite crust and toppings.

Enjoy these great Mexican favorites for Cinco de Mayo or your next Taco Tuesday dinner!

Beet Mania

Beet Mania

I have to be honest, as a kid, I did NOT like beets at all.  In fact I’m a very recent convert to this nutrient-packed gem of a vegetable.  According to health expert, Dr. Mercola, beets lower your blood pressure, fight inflammation, boost your stamina, contain anti-cancer properties, properties, support detoxification, and contain valuable nutrients and are a good source of fiber. 

Frozen Beet Berry Smoothie Ingredients

I’ve taken to tossing in half of chopped beet into my berry smoothie, which I have a few times a week.  I add a scoop of vitamin packed Daily Lift to my shake which almost completely masks the earthy flavor of the beets.  Here is my recipe:

  • ½ fresh raw beet, diced

  • 1 cup of frozen mixed berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries are in my blend)

  • 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder.  I’m currently crushing on this brand: Vega Clean Protein.

  • ¼ cup of unsweetened cranberry juice

  • 1 cup of water

  • Optional: 1 packet of Berry Flavored Daily Lift

Beet Berry Smoothie

Not into smoothies?  I recently made this recipe for roasted beets with a honey balsamic glaze.  I think you’ll enjoy it too!  You can also grate a little fresh beetroot onto your salads.  And don’t waste the beet greens!  They pack more iron than spinach and can be tossed into salads, smoothies, or lightly sautéed in a little bit of olive oil and fresh minced garlic.

Can I Freeze Dairy Products? (Video)

Can I Freeze Dairy Products

Some dairy products freeze well and others will curdle and separate. Here’s the rundown of which ones make good freezer candidates:

• DO NOT freeze half-and-half, sour cream, cottage cheese, and buttermilk. They have a tendency to separate, become watery, and sometimes curdle.

• Milk – 1 month. Make sure you take 1 cup per gallon of milk out of the container since it will expand when frozen. Milk should be consumed in a week once thawed.  Whole milk and 2% freeze better than skim milk.  If your family goes through multiple gallons of milk per week, stocking up when it goes on sale and freezing it could save you a bundle!

• Cheese – Up to 6 months.  Yes, you can freeze cheese! The National Dairy Counsel suggests freezing cheese for six months or less. Freezing can change the texture of some cheeses, making them crumbly once thawed, and the firmer varieties (cheddar, Gouda, and Swiss) seem to hold up best. As I like to say, “The firmer the cheese, the better it will freeze!”  Stock up on shredded cheeses that you’ll be using for cooking and freeze – you won’t notice a difference in taste or texture in your recipes. You can even freeze cheese slices!

• Butter – up to 12 months. I frequently stock up on sticks of butter when it goes on sale in November and December during the holiday baking season. Spreadable butters also freeze very well, too. I pop them directly in the freezer, no need for a freezer bag or container!

Student Loans: A Real Menace For Young Adults

Student Loan Stress

This week’s guest blog post is by James Smith.

Student loans have become a real menace for young adults today. While tuition keeps soaring, students keep racking up huge amounts of debt which can follow them all the way into their 40s. For some however, student loans are quite manageable; for others, they are quite a pain. Here are some ways students nowadays find themselves in huge debts before they even graduate, and how you can avoid them.

Blowing Through Your Student Loan Cash  

Rather than utilizing financial aid for books, educational costs, room and board, numerous students will back their indulgent lifestyle of partying, clothes, devices, and eating out. These school loans you’ve worked so hard to get ought to be paying for your education, not you social life…so utilize the cash astutely.

Credit Card Debt

Indeed, even mindful grown-ups can pile on some weighty credit card debt, yet students, who have no reasonable salary other than their school loan money, and what money their parents give them, should not be getting into credit card debt. This is a formula for credit disaster, since students won’t just have their school loans to reimburse when they graduate, but also have huge credit card balances.

Overdue payment

Not Paying Your Bills on Time

Racking up gigantic credit debt and not paying your bills on time is an approach guaranteed to make it difficult buy a car or lease an apartment after you graduate. Keep the credit cards to a minimum, and pay your bills on time to keep your great credit rating. You’ll thank yourself in a couple of years.

Terrible Budgeting

Being a college student for the most part means living on a fixed income. Whether it’s your financial aid cash or cash from part-time work, or even money from mom and dad, your income is generally restricted and setting up a financial plan is critical. A month to month spending plan doesn’t mean you can’t do the things you need to do, yet it assures that you know the “must-pays” will really get paid. Make sense of precisely what bills and costs you have each month and arrange to pay those first. Any cash over and above that you can spend for social/recreational things.

Heading off to a College That’s Pricey

Rather than heading off to your community college for your pre-req classes and burning through $25 a unit, numerous students feel they need to go to the 4 year college straight out of high school. Numerous students end up returning home and setting off to a community college anyway.  Going to a nearby, reasonably priced, school first is a decent approach to spare cash, and get those required classes checked off your list cheaply. After you’ve finished these courses, transfer to a 4 year school to finish your college degree. This will spare tons of dollars that you would have piled on student loans, and been paying off a long way into your 30′s and beyond.

Such a variety of awful financial decisions students make is an aftereffect of lack of basic financial education. Students haven’t been taught by their parents or teachers the significance of keeping up a decent credit score, paying bills on time, and planning expenses. Astute spending amid the college years will guarantee that the cash you make in the wake of graduating will be spent on things you need and want, not for credit card payments and student loans.
