Dinner menu for July 7, 2014

My daughter and grandson are coming for dinner, and we're having taco salad with all the usual toppings. Jalapenos on the side - little man won't want those. Mint chocolate chip ice cream for dessert.

What's everyone having this evening?

Ohhhhhhh thanks for the idea Cheryl, taco salad sounds perfect for tonight. I like Catalina Dressing on ours, what do you use?

Frogs legs in lemon butter for an appetizer. Then, moving on to a Spicy Cajun Shrimp Alfredo.

We usually have it with ranch. I've had it with Catalina before though, and I like it. Adds a nice little zesty kick.

One of my faves for taco salad is Marie's Chipotle Ranch, have you ever tried it? It's in the refrigerated section, as it's made with buttermilk instead of mayo. Deelish!

Marie’s Creamy Chipotle Ranch

I'm thinking maybe Ranch mixed with Catalina might really do the trick.
I'll have to look for that Marie's dressing next time.

Great pictures guys. I'd love to have frog legs again but someone would have to fix them for me.
