This week's Gleaner's trip and some tasty fajitas

I made it to Gleaner's yesterday and went to Safeway for WIC items on the way home. Here is what we're working with for this week:

1 loaf whole wheat bread
1 loaf sweet dark whole grain bread
6 diet sodas
4 natural sierra mist
2 lemonades
1 jar chicken baby food
1 deodorant
4 rolls TP
3 rolls paper towels
6 glazed doughnuts
1 pkg cinnamon raisin english muffins
1 red bell pepper
1 lb strawberries
1 lg purple onions
1 can water chestnuts
1 box melba toast
2 6-packs unsweetened applesauce
1 box fruit snacks (treats for potty training)
4 small bags fritos
1 bottle almond coffee syrup
1 box breaded chicken pieces
1 box blueberry waffles
3 chicken breasts
1 box bread sticks
1 mango
1 handful mushrooms
1 sandwich ziplock of beef
10 oz whole milk cheese
7 oz english cheddar
1 lg bag butternut squash soup
1 lg bag tapioca pudding
16 oz spinach dip
1 pkg whole wheat flatbread

2 gal 1% milk
1 lb cheddar
1 doz eggs
1 jar pb
16 oz corn tortillas
3 boxes instant regular oatmeal
1 frozen apple juice
1 frozen grape juice
1 can pink salmon
3 cans tuna fish
1 lb cooking/salad spinach
3 lg naval oranges
3 avocados
2.5 lbs bananas

Tuesday's Tasties
B: Blueberry waffles, eggs, and apple juice.
L: Flatbread pizza topped with tomato paste, herbed mozzarella, swiss cheese, spinach, and tomatoes.
D: Fajitas (with the bag of cooked beef, the corn tortillas, and some sour cream left from last week's trip), fruit salad, and tapioca pudding.
For some tasty fajitas, chop and cook your choice of beef or chicken (about 1/2 lb should be enough). Slice and saute 1 red onion, 2 bell peppers (any color), and a handful of mushrooms (I did 6 good sized ones) in some olive oil. I also decided to throw in the remainder of my fresh green beans and it did not disappoint. Add the meat to the veggies once tender and season to taste with taco seasoning. Spoon into warmed corn or flour tortillas and top with sour cream.

The fruit salad turned out good, too. I sliced up a bunch of strawberries, a mango, and a banana. For the dressing, I tossed the fruit with just under a tablespoon of mayo and about a teaspoon or so of honey. I didn't really measure it, but it tasted awesome. My grandmother used to make a fruit/jello salad on holidays that we all loved and the dressing was made with mayo, milk, and honey. I figured it was worth a try with any fruit salad and it worked great!
