This week, as last, I will be working about 11 hours extra. I have to make sure I stay organized and plan in advance. I purposely chose a menu that was relatively pain-free. In other words, I'm not trying many new things. Oh, well...the objective is to get people fed with minimum fuss. And to wind down the use of the oven so that we are only cooking on the stove or with the crock pot by May 1st.
Tuesday - Ham and Cheese Party Rolls, chips, mini bakery brownies with frozen yogurt
Wednesday - Easy Slow Cooker A1 Swiss Steak, instant mashed potatoes, peas and carrots
Thursday - One Pot Spagetti, green beans
Friday - Eat Out In Night - probably pizza with a bagged salad
Saturday - Dad Grills
Sunday - Dr. Martin's Mix*, corn
Dr. Martin's Mix
Adapted from The I Hate to Cook Book
1 roll pork sausage
1 c. rice
2 c. water
1 T. worchestershire sauce
salt and pepper, garlic
2 c. finely chopped carrot, onion, and celery (or, use 2 c. froz. mire poix)
Cook the sausage in a 2 qt. cast iron skillet that has a lid. Drain the grease out and add the veggies. With heat on medium, stir the veggie around a few minutes, then add the rice and seasonings. Add water and worchestershire, cover the pot, turn heat to low. Cook covered on low for about 1/2 an hour. I season this to taste - add what your family likes. You can also make it with spicy sausage.
Wish me luck this week - I'm starting to feel super tired, but trying to hang in there!
