Three growing boys eat a lot so I love me a good deal—especially when it comes to my grocery budget. In fact, couponing is what I first began blogging about. Now I’ve found another way to save at the grocery store, too.
Fiesta Chicken Enchilada
I was rather mindlessly fixing dinner while thinking through my to-do list when one of my guys came into the kitchen and gave me a disappointed look. So, of course I asked, “What’s that all about?”

“Well…” came the fumbling words and wrinkled nose. “Umm, we just had that a couple of days ago.”

He looked at me with a little trepidation, knowing Mama is much happier when he doesn’t complain about food. He’s heard my “be thankful for what you have speech” before.

But I realized he was right. Blame it on picky eaters and a stretched mom, but my menu choices have been on repeat as of late.
