Try It Tuesday

I started a new thing with my weekly menu for the last three weeks.

I instituted "Try It Tuesday".

The kids don't know what we're eating (and neither do I until I scan my Pinterest recipes I want to try or whip something up), but we all get to "try it".

It kind of brings the surprise back into cooking and gives me a chance to experiment a little bit.  I can't say every experiment has been good, but they all tried it.

Last night we had nachos.  I had to make sure it was something good after the last two Tuesday dishes flopped.  I combined a can of black refried beans, velvetta cheese, some salsa, and taco seasoning in a saucepan on the stove on low and served the dip with chips.
It was a quick meal that I didn't have to work hard on, maybe not the most balanced meal, but everyone liked it (except for my five year old who doesn't like beans-too bad!)

What's the newest meal you've tried?  

Did it work?

What should I made for the next Try It Tuesday?
