Dinner ideas:

  • Grilled pork (marinated in soy sauce, brown sugar and rosemary) mashed potatoes and sautéed spinach with garlic
  • Dry rubbed (brown sugar, paprika, cayenne, chili power, and cumin) pork butt in the crock pot with homemade ginger beer and onions, simmering it on low all day. Later on I'll shred it up and mix it with some locally made sweet barbecue sauce. Serve it on whatever you like! (Baked potatoes or sweet potatoes, salad, or buns.)
  • Thinly sliced some flank steak, added black pepper, lots of garlic, and fish sauce, and cooked it in a pan with a little oil. Served over rice and a spinach salad.

  • Lipton Soup Pork Roast
  • Quinoa Chicken Chili
  • Boneless Pork Chops: 
    • 1 can of Campbell's golden mushroom soup, 1/2 can full of red wine, chopped mushrooms, and spices-- salt, pepper, garlic, paprika, etc. Serve with brown rice or potatoes and a veggie- oven roasted asparagus or steamed broccoli.
  • Taco soup:  
    • Mix together 1 46 oz bottle spicy hot V8, 1 packet Taco Bell taco seasoning, 1 drained can each black beans, dark red kidney beans, 1 can whole herbal corn, 2 cans Rotel. Add in either a lb of browned hamburger meat or a lb-ish of cooked shredded chicken breast. Cook on low at least an hour or 2, serve with assorted toppings like shredded cheese, sour cream, black olives, jalapeños, and tortilla chips or Mexican cornbread.
