  2. Tex Mex twice baked potatoes, Chicken Shepherds Pie, Creamy Strawberry Salad Dressing – all sound and look so scrumptious. I haven’t set my goals yet, but I am working on them this coming week while I have a few days to concentrate on it. I’m always willing to try new recipes and these are making it onto my menu. Good luck with your goals.
