Week 3 August Menu Plan

16 Aug

Last week, I shared one of our family favorite recipes with you. Well I updated it with pictures, so head over here to check out my Sticky Chicken recipe. Here’s this week’s plan.

16th: Burgers

17th: Ham & Pineapple Fried Rice

(Photo courtesy of eat at HOME)
  • 3 cups cooked white rice
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced or crushed
  • vegetable oil
  • 2 cups diced ham 
  •  soy sauce
  • 20 oz can pineapple tidbits, drained and reserve juice
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1-2 cups frozen peas and carrots

Cook the onion and garlic in oil  in a large skillet till soft.  Add the ham, 2 Tbs. soy sauce, 1 Tbs. pineapple juice.  Cook for several minutes till the ham is hot.

Pour the eggs into the skillet and cook, stirring frequently.  Add the peas and carrots and heat through.  Stir in the drained pineapple.  Add the cooked rice, stirring to combine.  Drizzle soy sauce over rice, I’d say about 1/4 cup. Add a few splashes of pineapple juice. Enjoy!

This is a super yummy recipe. I like to make a big ham and then dice up the leftovers and freeze them in 2 cup increments, and they are handy for a quick casserole, soup, or fried rice recipe. You can check out the original recipe for this fried rice here.

18th: The family and I are member’s of our local YMCA, and tonight they are have a BBQ Roundup for all their members. So no cooking for me=D If you attend the Mel Korum Y, here in Puyallup, make sure you head over there from 5-7pm and enjoy the festivities! You can even bring guests.

19th & 20th:  We are going camping!

21st: Teriyaki Chicken is the plan;-)

22nd: SOS so maybe you know what the SOS stands for….? LOL. I have never had or even made this before, but my hubby grew up on this and I found a recipe so I figured I would try it out just for him. It’s also called chipped beef;-)

3 Tbs. butter
3 Tbs. chopped onion
3 Tbs. flour
2 cups hot milk
1 jar of beef (you know the kind from the canned meat section that you use for cheese balls)
1/4 tsp paprika
pepper and salt to taste

Rinse the meat under running water to remove a bit of the salt and then chop it up. In a sauce pan melt the butter and saute the onion until it’s clear. Stir in the flour with a whisk and then add the hot milk, stirring until the mixture thickens. Add the remaining ingredients.

Once again, this is a recipe courtesy of eat at HOME.

23rd: Spam Musubi Yep. Spam. We love it! If you’ve been to Hawaii, maybe you’ve had Spam Musubi. A friend told us you can get it at the convienence store there. If you haven’t been to Hawaii, like us, you can also find this at the Hawaiian Grills. Or you can make it at home! You get to eat more anyway.  I think I will have to make this as a snack sometime this week and post a step-by-step how to.

Alright that’s the plan this week for “Eat Out Of the Pantry” Challenge. So how are you doing with the challenge?
