After a very busy weekend, it’s days like today when I am especially thankful that I have a meal plan. I usually make a meal plan on Thursday or Friday for the following week, because I do our grocery shopping on Thursday or Friday. I have a separate meal plan for weekends that involves things like make ahead casseroles and meals that aren’t labor intensive. Our family sets aside time for worship and Sabbath rest on the weekends, and I do my best to make sure we aren’t running around doing errands or housework.
Our family loves this Street Taco Kit from Costco, and it makes dinner SO EASY. Have you tried it yet? I like to serve it with rice and beans, or in this case, with chips and guacamole. If you’re serving it with rice and beans, don’t forget you can make those ahead of time to save time.
The kit comes with precooked chicken, shredded cheese, cabbage slaw, cilantro lime crema (YUM), salsa, limes, and 12 corn tortillas. It is sold per pound. For someone to buy all of the ingredients separately it would cost much more than the price of the kit. Not to mention, the meat is already cooked for you! We have found that there’s always more meat than fits in the tacos, so we usually count on having leftovers for someone’s lunch the next day. It is a lot more food than it looks like packed into the container.
Have you found a similar dinner kit somewhere else? Please share it with me! I am always on the hunt for new dinner ideas. If you have questions about any of the other meals on this week’s Meal Plan above, feel free to ask.
