Menu Plan Monday June 30, 2008

Hosted this week at Heavenly Homemakers!

SUNDAY: Grilled salmon, corn on the cob, and cold salads at Mom & Dad's

MONDAY: Chicken lo mein

I'm feeling indecisive this week and there are no guarantees that I won't change my mind again! I figure it's all good as long as it doesn't involve any extra store runs.

Menu Plan for the week of June 23, 2008

SATURDAY: We changed our plan and had London broil on the grill, corn, tater tots (LOVE those Alexia brand "tater tots") and baked beans.

SUNDAY: Burgers on the grill, mixed vegetables, pasta salad (I had pepper-jack cheese on my burger. YUMMY!)

MONDAY: Chicken piccata, jasmine rice, vegetable

TUESDAY: Taco skillet, corn, salad

WEDNESDAY: Pork roast with hoisin-molasses sauce, mashed potatoes, vegetable

THURSDAY: Spaghetti--time to make the big batch!

FRIDAY: Homemade pizza

SATURDAY: We need a late, light dinner plan. At 5 PM we will be attending Mass at our "sister church" that is merging with our church. The new combined parish will be instituted by the Bishop and the new pastor will be installed. A "light reception" will follow. Who knows what that means in terms of dinner. So I'll have some Quesadillas made up, using leftover grilled chicken, and ready to cook on the griddle. A simple salad will complete the meal. If we don't need the quesadillas, then we'll just have them for Sunday lunch!

Don't forget to stop by the home of Menu Plan Monday, where HUNDREDS of bloggers visit every week to share their dinner ideas and recipes.

Chinese-Hawaiian Barbecued Ribs

Source: Nesco Roasting Yahoo group

SAUCE for up to 4 lb country-style ribs:

3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup sherry
1 tsp salt
1 garlic clove, smashed (or 1 TBL minced garlic from a jar)
1 tbl ground ginger

Reserve some of the sauce for basting on the grill.

Use the rest of the sauce to marinate the meat at least 3 hours, or up to 1 day.

Preheat a Nesco at least 12-qt to 300, put in the ribs and marinade, and bake about 3 hours. Or place in a large roasting pan, cover with foil, and bake in your oven at 300 for 3 hours.

Grill 15 minutes, basting with reserved sauce, until crispy.
