Menu Plan Monday - May 31, 2010

What a wonderful holiday weekend. We spent 5 days traveling the state of Indiana to bring to life some of the history we've studied this past year. The children are determined to become re-enactors to really re-live it!

We're looking forward to a relatively quiet week at home. Hopefully there will be some serious accomplishment in the 4-H department!

Here are some of our favorites we will enjoy this week:

Monday – Sweet & Sour Sausage, Rice, Broccoli


•1 (14-oz) can pineapple tidbits or chunks, undrained
•1/4 cup brown sugar
•2 tablespoons cornstarch
•1/2 cup water
•1/4 cup cider vinegar
•1 teaspoon soy sauce (or more to taste)
•5 smoked sausages, cut into slices
•1 (5-oz) can water chestnuts, drained and thinly sliced
•1 green pepper, cut in strips

Drain pineapple tidbits, reserving syrup. In medium saucepan, combine brown sugar and cornstarch. Blend in reserved syrup, water, cider vinegar and soy sauce. Cook and stir over low heat until thick and bubbly. Carefully stir in meatballs, water chestnuts, green pepper strips and pineapple. Heat to a boiling. Serve over hot cooked rice.

Tuesday  – Turkey Ranch Wraps, Potato Wedges

Wednesday – Bratwurst Potato Skillet

Thursday - Black Beans, Cheese & Chips

Friday - Bible Study

Saturday - Stumpf Chili, Cornbread
