Weekly post

Hello All!  Spring is coming!!!

Here are some menu's for March.  I've been busy having little birthday parties.  My mother had a birthday, then my granddaughter, and now my mother-in-law will be this weekend, so I thought I'd better get busy and post a menu early.  I won't have time this weekend.  Hope y'all have had a nice start to the week.  It's been fairly nice weather.   I think I'll have to start my veggie garden soon!

If you haven't tried making egg rolls, it is a very simple process.  You will need a deep fryer for best results.  I use hamburger meat, onions, and a package of coleslaw.  Don't forget your egg role wraps.  Fry up your hamburger and onions.  Drain meat on a papertowel.  Directions are on the pkg of wraps on how to fold.  Just fill with your meat and coleslaw.  Seal each wrap with a bit of water and fry up.  You can make your own sauce, which every type you like.  Or buy already made.  This is an easy recipe.  I make plain white rice and add a can of mixed veggies to it for a bit of flavor. 

Enchilada Casserole (super easy)

1 lb of ground beef
1/2 med onion, chopped
12 corn tortilla's
1 can enchilada sauce
2 cups shredded cheese

Brown your meat, drain on a papertowel.  Fry your tortilla's to soften.  In a large cassarole dish layer with tortillas, meat, onion, cheese.  Repeat layers.  Cover with enchilada sauce and top with cheese.  Bake at 350 degree's for 15 to 20 minutes. 

BBQ pork sandwiches:  You can purchase the ready made or make your own using my slow cooker recipe. 

Homemade Pizza:

I purchase the ready made pizza dough, usually you get 2 pizza circles in one package, buy the ready make sauce and a package of pepperoni.  Cheeses can be whatever you like.  Add onions, olives, mushrooms, and any other toppings you like.  Cook according to package directions. 

Baked Chicken:  I purchase 1 whole chicken.  If you don't have a small roaster, I would highly recommend you purchase one.  They are great for chicken and roasts.  I clean my chicken, add salt and pepper.  Put in your roaster, add a little butter on top.  You can add potatoes and carrots if you like.  Bake for about 45 minutes to one hour on 350 degree's.   Sooo delicious.

Chicken Salad:  Use any leftover chicken from your roasted chicken. 

Have a wonderful week, and happy cooking!!!
