Last week we tried some new recipes that we really liked. The green beans, carrots, beef broccoli stir fry (recipe on last week's menu) and fried rice (I'll post the recipe below) were all great.
We didn't have the ribs last week, so I moved that to this week.
Scroll to the bottom for recipes!!

Monday--ribs, homemade potato salad, cole slaw
Tuesday--fajitas (I adjusted it to 8 servings), rice, beans

Thursday--Mexican spaghetti (freezer meal), black eye peas, carrots
Friday--Shepherd's pie (freezer meal), rolls
All I did was get a box of Uncle Ben's chicken flavored rice and a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies. I cooked the rice according to the directions, making one exception. My package called for 2 cups water. I measured the juice in the can of tomatoes and there was 3/4 c. I added the can of tomatoes with the juice in and 1 1/4 c water into the rice. So...I had my 2 cups of liquid and the tomatoes/green chilies and then cooked it according to the directions. It was sooo yummy!!
1 med. onion, diced
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
1 can rotel
2 8 oz cans tomato suace
1 lb. spaghetti noodles
Brown hamburger meat with diced onion. Drain the meat and add the soup, rotel, and tomato sauce. Mix this all together and then pour it in with spaghetti that has been cooked according to package directions. Mix well and serve.
This would also be good made with chicken. Or...leave the meat out completely.
(I think I originally found this in a Fix it and Forget it cookbook)
1 cup packed brown sugar
6 tbsp. spicy mustard
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 pounds smoked kielbasa, cut into 2-inch pieces
Combine brown sugar, mustard and onion in crock pot; add kielbasa, stirring to evenly coat.
Cover and cook on low-heat 2-1/2 to 3 hours, stirring occasionally. Yield: 6 servings.
1/2 t. ginger
cooked rice (I think I used about 2 cups, cooked)
1/4 c. carrot, sliced
1/4 c. green onion, sliced
1 T. butter
1 T. soy sauce
salt and pepper to taste
Toast garlic and ginger in a little bit of oil. Add the cooked rice and fry. Add the carrots and green onion and continue to cook. Scramble the egg in a bowl and add to the rice and vegetables. Toss to cook. Add butter, soy sauce, salt, and pepper. Toss and serve.
