And now for some recipes:

Here’s a recipe that my family loves.   It’s been FOREVER since we’ve had this and it’s super quick, so it’s perfect for this week.  This recipe came from a cookbook called “Fix it Fast”. 

Jiffy Jambalaya 

1/2 cup chopped onion                     1/2 cup chopped green pepper

2 TBS cooking oil                                     3 drops hot sauce

1 (28 oz) can tomatoes diced                  1/2 c. water

1 (12 oz) can Spam, cubed                      1 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp dried thyme, crushed                  1/2 tsp oregano

1/4 tsp salt (can omit because the Spam has plenty of salt in it.

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1 1/2 cups quick rice


In a 3 quart saucepan cook onion & green pepper in hot oil till tender.  Stir in remaining ingredients except rice.  Bring to a boil.  Stir in rice.  Cover; simmer for 5 minutes.  Stir before serving.  Makes 6 servings.


Now for the coleslaw dressing:

Sweet and Sour Sauce

1/2 cup Miracle Whip                             1/2 cup evaporated milk

1/2 cup sugar                                         1/4 tsp salt

1/8 tsp pepper                                       1/4 cup vinegar

Combine all ingredients and pour over your shredded cabbage.  Refrigerate.  This makes THE BEST coleslaw!!  I usually double this recipe because we like our coleslaw with a lot of “juice”. 

That’s our plan for this week.  Want to see more great menu plans?  Head on over to Organizing Junkie.  There are hundreds of them! 

(PS  Since you’re here, you should take a minute to enter my Old El Paso "Tackle the Taste" giveaway .  Better hurry though, this giveaway ends 1/22)

how do you do the oven baked onion rings? I've only made onion rings once and they were awesome but it was such a pain to make that I haven't made them since.
