April Weekly Menu 3

Sunday: Italian Chicken/Micro Potatos/Green Salad/Corn
Monday: Tacos
Tuesday: Chicken Parmesan
Wednesday: Slow Cooker Meatloaf with Potatos and Carrots
Friday: Wontons/Ham Fried Rice

This weeks menu included a meal for the missionaries. After talking with the missionaries we learned that they get lasagna alot. They also get meat (roast) and potatos alot. I really would have liked to do DUTCH OVEN for them with BUTTERMILK SCONES, but didn't have the time or energy. We chose to do ITALIAN CHICKEN. One of our favorites and so easy.

Oatmeal Chip Cookies

1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter
1 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbsp. water
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
3 cups oatmeal
1 package chocolate chips
opt. nuts
(If you want to try something a little different, try adding a little cinnamon to the batter.)

Cream sugars, and butter. Add vanilla, water and eggs. Cream again. Then sift flour, soda, and salt and add to mixture. Mix well. Add oatmeal and chocolate chips. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.

This is another recipe from the Koosharem Ward Relief Society Cook Book. There are some great cooks in Koosharem. I did make a few changes to the recipe, nothing that really changes the cookie though.

April Weekly Menu 1

Sunday: (EASTER) Ham/Funeral Potatos/Veggie/Rainbow Jello/Rolls
Monday: Spaghetti Pie/Green Beans
Tuesday: Tomato Basil Chicken/Brown Rice/Veggie
Wednesday: Hamburger/Turkey Burgers/Carrot sticks/Hint of Salt Chips
Friday: French Bread Pizza
This weeks menu included meals cooked for my parents. My mom is on a Low/No Salt Diet. When looking for meals to cook without salt, you really have to start from scratch. No already prepared foods. I cooked my TOMATO BASIL CHICKEN for them along with BROWN RICE. I also did TURKEY BURGERS for them. Mom and Dad eat alot of salads. They are very creative when making salads and are willing to try new things. Apples in a green salad add alot of flavor.

Surprise Cookies

1 cup softened butter
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 cups sifted flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 bag Snickers miniatures
1 bag Dove milk chocolate or dark chocolate
Combine butter, peanut butter, and sugars in mixer on a medium to low speed until light and fluffy. Slowly add eggs and vanilla until thoroughly combined. Mix in flour, baking soda, and salt. Cover and chill dough for 2-3 hours. Unwrap Snickers Miniatures. Remove dough from refrigerator, divide into 1 tablespoon size pieces and flatten. Place a Snicker in the center of each piece of dough. Form dough into a ball around each Snickers. Place on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 325 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Let cookies cool on wire rack. Drizzle melted Dove chocolate over top of each cookie. Enjoy!
I got this recipe from Jim's mom. They are so yummy. You won't want to share. I split the batch and put Rolo's in half of them. My family is caramel lovers, but they preferred the Snickers one.

Pour this on plain jelled jello. Let this jell also. Continue with each jello layering them ontop of each other.
