Menu Planning Monday Week 2

It's time for Menu Planning Monday again!!

Each week, I sit down and look through blog posts, cookbooks and magazines to come up with our menu for the week. I actually find this to be therapeutic and I just love it.

I know most of us cook and we love to share recipes. I've seen some of you do Tasty Tuesdays, recipes of the week and others just post recipes randomly.

I don't care what you call your recipe sharing day, but do tell others about this link up so we can all share and enjoy our favorite recipes with each other.

This week I'm sharing a "family" recipe. The Hubble's mom makes THE best enchilada casserole I've ever had and I feel privileged that she shared it with me. 

Now I get to share it with you! So here you go!
