Weekly Menu.....

Monday-Porcupine Meatballs, green beans almondine, mashed potatoes and rolls.

1 & 1/2 lb ground beef
2/3 cup uncooked long grain rice

1 & 1/2 cups beef broth
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 & 1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
15 oz can tomato sauce
2 tsp worcestershire sauce
1 tbs brown sugar

In a bowl combine the ground beef, uncooked rice, 1/2 cup beef broth, onion, garlic, thyme, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. Mix well. Then form into 1 & 1/2 inch meatballs. If you make your meatballs too big the rice in the center will still be crunchy. Place the meatballs in a 2 quart shallow baking dish. Then in a bowl mix together 1 cup of beef broth, the can of tomato sauce, worcestershire sauce, and brown sugar. Pour the sauce over the meatballs and cover the baking dish with foil. Bake in 350 degree oven for 1 hour. Then remove the foil and bake for about 15 to 20 additional minutes.

Tuesday- Santa Fe Chicken (crockpot recipe) I have to double this because I have a LOT of mouths to feed! :)
4 chicken breasts in the crockpot (can put in frozen)
2 cans corn (drained)
1 can black beans
1 can tomato sauce

Cook in the crockpot on low all day. Shred the chicken when done. Serve over rice or with tortillas and top with cheese, sour cream, and sliced avacados
